Abstract
Although statistical significance is desirable in testing the safety of decompression models or tables, it is impossible to conduct enough dives to reach this goal. Decompression model/tables testing is governed more by practical considerations such as the number of dive subjects available, the time available for testing, the facilities available or required, and most importantly, the funding available. Within these constraints, one must design the model, generate the decompression tables from this model, select the profiles to be tested, and conduct the tests. The Defence and Civil Institute of Environmental Medicine has been involved in an active program of table testing and dive profile validation since 1979. TRUNCATED
