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.

Ongas and outgas on ascent. Sorry I wasn’t clear. Decompression tissues might be similar structures scattered all over your body. They ddciem to realize that the human body is better represented by a series arrangement of tissues.

Search Media New Media. The numbers assigned to the tissues are derived from theory and experiment. In a parallel model, the tissue compartments are assumed to ongas and offgas to the blood rciem independently of each other.

No body can figure it out. Outline of Decompression Theory. OK, I’ve have some time to compare the two.

The purpose of decompression theory is to determine how long and how deep you tab,es dive without undue risk of DCS. Tt looks simple at first; Table A: No gas transfer is assumed between different tissues. Joining is quick and easy. Because fatty tissues hold more nitrogen than watery tissues, it takes longer for nitrogen to fill and leave fatty tissue.

Exact halftimes are not known for every single anatomic structure in the body. Some areas of your body absorb gas faster than others. First, these don’t look like the “old” NAUI tables to me.


Don’t plan dives with these tables unless you learn proper proceedures from someone familiar with them. Different filling times result for taables compartment depending on depth and dcidm. Registration is not required to read the forums, but we cciem you to join.

It’s not true that you only offgas on ascent. If you multiply the repetitive factor obtained from table B, by the actual bottom time of your Repet dive you can then obtain an “Effective Bottom Time” or EBT which you can use to re-enter table A.

I’ve never seen them before. Serial decompression models assume that gas transfers from tissue to tissue during a dive. Group and Surface interval time gives you a Repetitive Factor.

What Are Serial and Parallel Models? Your name or email address: What is a tissue? InDCIEM initiated a critical reevaluation of the K-S model using digital computers to control the dives and specially-designed Doppler ultrasonic bubble detectors to evaluate the severity of the dive profiles.

Decompression tables and computers account for what we currently hope are most of the possibilities. Welcome to ScubaBoard, the world’s largest scuba diving community. PatHNov 19, Byover 5, experimental dives had been conducted tablea validate the K-S Kidd-Stubbs model.

The compressed air, which we inhale during scuba diving, contains nitrogen and oxygen at the rate of 8: Although tissue divisions do not correspond one to one with anatomic tissues, they do reference existing decompression areas that behave alike.

Its mission is to enhance the safety and effectiveness of Canadian Forces personnel in the way in which they interact with their equipment and the way in which they function in difficult environments. Repetitive Factor and depth give you the No-D limit at that depth. In short, if we ascend without outguessing the nitrogen dissolved during diving, we may get decompression sickness. Most dive tables are based on parallel decompression models.


I’ve asked people at LDS and on site while diving. DarkHorseNov 19, Water pressure during ascent forces nitrogen into your slow tissueswhile your fast tissues outgas. For example, at 30 ft, if you stay submerged for 45 minutes, on these NAUI tables your repetitive group would be B, on the DCIEM tables, there is no 45 minutes at 30 ft, so you’d use 60 minutes and your repetitive group would be D.

Charlie99 dcem, Nov 19, Your entire body absorbs nitrogen under pressure. Table C gives you a no “D” limit for a Repet dive, taking into account residual N2 from the first dive. Experiments and educated guestimation have led to some generalizations about which areas of the body are faster or slower than others. Only one tissue is assumed to be exposed to ambient pressure.

You can make this box go away Joining is quick and easy.
