Benefits and Hazards of High Oxygen Partial Pressure

Oxygen is necessary to sustain life, but it plays a more complex role in diving safety. Increased fractions can improve decompression efficiency by reducing the inert gas fraction of inspired gas, and a high partial []

Flexible Control of Decompression Stress

Divers should know that while the decompression algorithms in dive computers are great at measuring pressure-time profiles, they are blind to a wide range of variables that affect decompression risk. The approximation of decompression status []
