Pagination or Media Count:
An equation is developed which permits calculation of a divers oxygen consumption in a semi-closed circuit UBA if the inspired partial pressure of oxygen, the depth, the mixed gas injection rate and the supply gas oxygen percentage are known. The approximate nature of this calculation and its limitations are discussed.
