Title: Pressurized Submarine Rescue
Author: Eckenhoff, RG
Abstract: Decompression schemes, including transfer procedures for DSRV to ASR and DSRV to MOSUB and ascent rates for air and nitrox saturation exposures have been formulated and verified with human subjects in a laboratory setting. The onset, character and progression of pulmonary oxygen toxicity in hyperbaric air has been described in human subjects, and recovery in an elevated oxygen environment has been shown. A recent DSRV exercise has shown that serious deficiencies in the pressurization capability exist, which could preclude a successful pressurized submarine rescue.
