Abstract:

Fifty-four man dives were undertaken to evaluate three representative tables from a revised set of HeO2 schedules. These tables were calculated using the classical Haldane method and used the set of M values derived by Workman in 1965 as limits. A 33 incidence of decompression sickness occurred using surface decompression procedures. It was subsequently recommended that further testing of the schedules was unwarranted at this time. Further evaluation of the M values was recommended. Author
