Abstract
Decompression tables and procedures for compressed air diving based on the DCIEM 1983 DECOMPRESSION MODEL are presented. Standard Air, In-Water O2 and SurD O2 decompression tables, Repetitive Diving procedures and Altitude Diving corrections are also provided. These decompression tables and procedures have been validated by manned experiments at DCIEM employing Doppler ultrasonic bubble detection methods and were found to be safer than the decompression tables and procedures currently used by Canadian Forces divers for compressed air diving. They are recommended for adoption by the Canadian Forces.
