Abstract
Decompression research at the Defence and Civil Institute of Environmental Medicine has resulted in the development of the DCIEM decompression computer which has been used successfully for experimental, training and operational dives for over a decade. Decompression tables which are based on the decompression computer model have been developed for both diving and construction work in compressed air. The tables for diving are for both single and repetitive dives on compressed air and are designed for dive planning purposes and as emergency "back-up" in case of computer failure or unavailability. Depths are expressed in feet of sea water and meters of sea water. The maximum bottom times for these tables were determined by the use of the Doppler ultrasonic bubble detector.
