Abstract:

The tables are computed to the nearest foot - less than 0.5 is dropped, 0.5 or more is considered an additional foot. When computing the time of the final stop, any fraction of a minute is considered an additional minute. At stops other than the final stops, the saturation loss of the controlling tissue governs. Whether or not to consider a fraction of a minute must be determined by inspection. This last step is necessary because tissue loss is rounded off to the nearest foot.
