Title: Reverse dive profiles: the making of a myth. A response.
Author: Lang, MA; Lehner, CE
Abstract: The original aims of the Reverse Dive Profile Workshop were to challenge the reasoning behind FDPs and to generate an understanding as to where the historical objection to RDPs originated. While there was a lack of definitive experimental evidence advocating RDPs, it was the lack of evidence prohibiting them that was the issue. In their review article "Reverse dive profiles: the making of a myth", Edmonds, McInnes, and Bennett fail to impose the desired level of uncertainty on the subject of RDPs, in the context of the Workshop's findings and conclusion, and have added little to the debate that took place at the Workshop. We find no reason for the diving communities to prohibit reverse dive profiles within the no-decompression limits for dives less than 40 msw (130 fsw) and depth differentials less than 12 msw (40 fsw).
