    CONTINUOUS DECOMPRESSION WITH SUUNTO RGBM The Suunto Reduced Gradient Bubble Model (RGBM) utilized in the Stinger predicts both dissolved and free gas in blood and tissues of divers. It is a significant advance on the classic Haldane models, which do not predict free gas. The advantage of Suunto

    Diving with enriched air mixtures (nitrox) exposes the user to risks different from those associated with diving with standard air. These risks are not obvious and require training to understand and avoid. Risks include possible serious injury or death. Do not attempt to dive with any gas mix other
  • Страница 17 из 123
    1.1.3. NITROX Diving with nitrox provides the diver with an opportunity to reduce the risk of decompression illness by reducing the nitrogen content in the breathing gas mix. However, when the gas mix is altered, the oxygen content of the mix is generally increased. This increase exposes the diver
  • Страница 18 из 123
    Therefore, provided the effort involved in freediving has not been severe, there is little risk in diving after breathhold diving. However, the converse is more unknown and may increase significantly the risk of DCI. Therefore, FREEDIVING AFTER SCUBA DIVING IS NOT RECOMMENDED. You should avoid

    ALTITUDE DIVING The atmospheric pressure is lower at high altitudes than at sea level. After traveling to a higher altitude, the diver will have additional nitrogen in his body, compared to the equilibrium situation at the original altitude. This "additional" nitrogen is released gradually in time
