||The indigenous fisherman divers of Thailand: Diving practices
||2000, Vol.6, No.1, p.89-112. Illus. 40 ref.
||Diving practices of a group of 342 indigenous fisherman in Thailand were investigated by using a questionnaire and by field observation. Divers have diving patterns that put them at substantial risk of decompression illness. They breathe air from a primitive compressor through approximately 100m of air hose and have long bottom times coupled with short intervals. 46.2% of the divers indicated they would not make a stop during ascent from a long deep dive (40m for 30min). 72.1% exceeded the no-decompression limits set by the US Navy Standard Air Decompression Table.
