Biophysics and Diving Decompression Phenomenology

Biophysics and Diving Decompression Phenomenology

The biophysics of diving and decompression in the human body are complex. The average individual experiences atmospheric pressure swings of 3% at sea level and over 20% at altitudes greater than a ...

Model applications are important as predictors of comparative diver staging and protocols. Whether by computer, diveware, or tables, planning is requisite for safe diving. Applications following focus on both shallow and deep mixed gas diving on OC and RB systems. Profiles along with estimated risk are tallied. A bubble model correlated with deep stop diver outcomes is used. Profiles and schedules are listed and compared. Many profiles reside as data entries in the LANL DB. So the applications are both data and comparative dive profiles.
