Title: Evaluation of the DCIEM 1983 Decompression Model for Compressed Air Diving (Series A-F).
Author: Lauckner, GR; Nishi, RY; Eatock, BC
Abstract: The Defence and Civil Institute of Environmental Medicine (DCIEM), Downsview, Ontario, has developed a new mathematical model for decompressing compressed air divers. This model, referred to as the DCIEM 1983 DECOMPRESSION MODEL, has been employed for real-time computer-controlled diving using the DCIEM XDC-2 decompression computer. This report presents the results of 391 experimental man-dives within the proposed Canadian Forces normal air diving limits decompressed on the new model with Standard Air, In-Water Oxygen, and Surface Oxygen decomposition procedures. Both single dives and repetition dives were examined. The effectiveness of the decompression was assessed both subjectively (classical symptoms of decompression sickness) and by Doppler ultrasonic bubble detection methods.
