Title: Evaluation of decompression sickness incidence in multi-day repetitive diving for 77,680 sport dives
Author: Gilliam, B
Abstract: Introduction: I conducted the logkeeping data contained here as a private project in association with my contract positions as Director of Diving Operations for Ocean Quest International (a dive/cruise company now defunct). The majority of the data is from personal review of dive boat logs, passenger records, diver interviews, recompression chamber histories and interviews with members of the professional dive staff of the ship. I was responsible for the overall diving co-ordination of the ship including orientation of the sport dives each week, development of the computer diving program and certification course, supervision and operation of the recompression chamber facility, development of the treatment protocols, and captaining one of the ten 32 foot dive boats deployed from the ship. Additionally, as a USCG Merchant Marine Master, I served as a senior officer aboard the 457 foot cruise ship.
