Title: Development and testing of deterministic and probabilistic decompression models.
Author: Doolette, DJ
Abstract: Decompression models link the probability of decompression sickness (pDCS) to an index of decompression stress calculated from the depth/time/breathing-gas history of a dive. Decompression models developed and tested on the basis of experimental dives can then be used to predict the outcome of future, similar dives and, therefore, be used to produce decompression schedules. Deterministic decompression models categorise decompression schedules as either having a low pDCS (‘safe’) or not (‘unsafe’). Probabilistic models define a unique pDCS for any dive. The methods for calculating decompression stress can be similar in the two types of models. These two model types are the result of different development and testing philosophies.
