DCIEM DIVING MANUAL: AIR DECOMPRESSION PROCEDURES AND TABLES It includes the complete set of tables – Standard Air Decompression, Short. The Defence and Civil Institute of Environmental Medicine (DCIEM) has recently Based on over 20 years of decompression research at DCIEM, these tables. How to use DCIEM dive tables. SAFE DIVE Planning – DCIEM dive tables. Dive 1, Dive to depth to 18m with a Bottom Time (BT)of 30 mins. Refer to DCIEM Table.

How do you read DCIEM Tables??

No, create an account now. What is a tissue? Slower tissues are usually considered to include fat, fatty marrow and a vascular area like cartilage and certain joint structures. Decompression tables and computers account for what we currently hope are most of the possibilities. I’ve asked people at LDS and on site while diving.

There is a maximum nitrogen tension for each halftime tissue. In a parallel model, the tissue compartments are assumed to ongas and offgas to the tqbles stream independently of each other.

cciem OK, I’ve have some time to compare the two. You must log in or sign up to reply here. DarkHorseNov 19, The compressed air, which we inhale during scuba diving, contains nitrogen and oxygen at the rate of 8: The purpose of decompression theory is to determine how long and how deep you can dive without undue risk of DCS.


The present theory is based on this dive table. Experiments and educated guestimation have led to some generalizations about which areas of the body are faster or slower than others.

dcie, Joining is quick and easy. Although tissue divisions do not correspond one to one with anatomic tissues, they do reference existing decompression areas that behave alike. Charlie99Nov 19, Their approach was to dive the model and, when symptoms of DCS occurred, to change the parameters of the model making it more conservative. Your entire body absorbs diem under pressure. Slow tissues don’t have time during a recreational dive to equilibrate to ambient pressure. What Are Serial and Parallel Models?

They will still dciiem a lower pressure than the surrounding water. In a serial model, the compartments outgas to each other even as they ongas from other tissues of higher nitrogen tension.

RandyNov 19, Byover 5, experimental dives had been conducted to validate the K-S Kidd-Stubbs model. Areas well supplied by blood like lungs and abdominal organs absorb nitrogen faster than other tissues. Exact halftimes are not known for every single anatomic structure in the body. M stands for maximum Faster tissues have higher M-values and will tolerate higher supersaturating ratios than slower tissues.

Because fatty tissues hold more nitrogen than watery tissues, it takes longer for nitrogen to fill and leave fatty tissue. Some areas of your body absorb gas faster than others. Known as an M-value, it indicates the maximum tension before bubbles are thought to form during ascent.


Search Media New Media. Most dive tables are based on parallel decompression models. PatHNov 19, Tt looks simple at first; Table A: You can make this box go away Joining is quick and easy. Known as an M-valueit indicates the maximum tension before bubbles are thought to form during ascent. No body can figure it out. Time and depth dive you a “Rep. Only one tissue is assumed to be exposed to ambient pressure. I’ve never seen them before. They came to realize that the human body is better represented by a series arrangement of tissues.

Then, thousands of verification diving and many improvements of the theory have been performed and the dive table for air diving was released in These compartments do not use set halftimes. Serial decompression models assume that gas transfers from tissue to tissue during a dive.

I can get as far as getting the No-D limits for a second dive. Yes, my password is: Water pressure during ascent forces nitrogen into your slow tissueswhile your fast tissues outgas.

Different filling times result for each compartment depending on depth and time. There is a maximum nitrogen tension for tissues.

The numbers assigned to the tissues are derived from theory and experiment.
