Title Diving at diminished atmospheric pressure: Air decompression tables for different altitudes.
Bibliographic information Sep. 1976, Vol.3, No.3, p.189-204. 5 ref.
Abstract The rationale of the tables and the studies that led up to them (106 simulated dives and 278 actual dives at 900-1,700m altitude) are described. The schedules themselves are decompression tables, maximum ascent-rate tables, surface-interval tables and repetitive timetables, for altitudes up to 3,200. Schedules up to 2,000m were tested in humans under wet conditions; some are untested.
Descriptors (primary) diving; high altitude; decompression tables
