dc.description.abstract The first report of this series used probabilistic models to analyze the decompression safety of approximately 2000 single compressed air drives. The most successful model used in Report II generated new equal-risk decompression tables and was applied here to estimate the risk of bends using any of the current U.S. Navy, (U.K.) Royal Navy, and Canadian Forces standard air decompression tables. The range of risk went from less than 1 percent for short duration dives at most depths, to over 20 percent for exceptionally long exposures. The new Canadian schedules are generally safest because of their long decompression times, followed by British and then American schedules.
