Abstract
DCIEM has developed a new mathematical model for decompressing compressed air divers. This model, referred to as the DCIEM 1983 DECOMPRESSION MODEL, has been employed for real-time computer-controlled diving using the DCIEM XDC-2 decompression computer. Standard Air, In-Water Oxygen, and Surface Oxygen decompression procedures have been developed and examined for single and repetitive dives. The report presents the results of 144 single and repetitive dives decompressed with the new model using In-Water Oxygen and Surface Oxygen decompression. Also presented are the Doppler results of 132 No-Decompression (No-D) dives along an "operational" No-D curve proposed for the Canadian Forces which is less conservative than the No-D limit predicted by the model.
