Abstract
The DCIEM decompression tables described here have been developed based on over 20 years of decompression research at DCIEM. Although no realistic decompression procedures can totally eliminate the occurrence of DCS, the DCIEM tables, because of their conservative nature, are believed to be safer than most available tables. For Standard Air Dives at or near the normal air diving limit, there is still a high risk of DCS. For dives in the exceptional exposure range, the preferred method is surface decompression with oxygen.
