Abstract
The DCIEM bubble evolution model, calibrated against Doppler-detected bubble scores, is used to calculate the growth and decay of bubbles generated by a dive/decompression profile. The maximum bubble radius attained can be used as a measure of the risk of decompression sickness. Application of the model to reverse dive profiles suggests that these profiles do not present a markedly higher risk of DCS compared to conventional repetitive profiles.
