Abstract
The Doppler ultrasonic bubble detector can have an important role in the process of decompression table evaluation since it can give comparative information on the decompression stress of the dive even in the absence of DCS. As the risk of DCS increases with increasing levels of bubbles, it is possible to assign some risk factor to dive profiles by noting the number of divers with bubbles and the levels observed. Thus ultrasonic bubble detection can give far more information than the traditional DCS vs. no DCS approach with fewer dives, and , it is not necessary to bend divers to determine if a dive profile is safe.
