RR244 - Excursion tables in saturation diving - decompression implications of current UK practice
To evaluate the risk of decompression bubble formation arising
from the use of excursions to depths greater or less than the
living depth during heliox saturation diving. Decompression illness
is not unknown following decompression from saturation exposures
despite what appear to be conservative decompressions. One of the
factors which can contribute to the extent of decompression bubble
formation is depth changes during the course of bottom time.
