Flashcards in Mixed Gas Deck (30):
1

Normal operational Depth and exposure limit for SSD

300FSW :30

2

Repet Diving with Mixed gas wait times

12 hours before second dive, 18 hours after DECO dive

3

Break after 4 consecutive days diving

1 day

4

50/50 mix depth and percentage

90-40 FSW, 49-51% O/2

5

HEOX instrument accuracy

+- .5%

6

HEOX EGS mix

Same as bottom unless less than 16%02 then range 15-17%

7

Loss of HeO2 on the bottom

Shift to EGS and abort the dive
Shift to 50% and 50% at 90 feet
If EGS depletes prior to 90 feet shift to air

8

Exceeding five minutes when shifting to bottom next

Bottom time starts at five minute mark

9

Aborting a dive during decent

If at < 100 feet, Another dive may be performed and add the bottom times

If at > 100 feet, Repetitive diving is not allowed

10

Light headedness and dizzy on the bottom

Stop work

ventilate check O2 level tank n bank

no improvement shift to vent

no improvement consider EGS

abort

11

Unconscious diver on bottom

Check breathing, tank and bank, O2 level

Buddy okay, vent affected diver, smell gas in standby hat

Not breathing reposition head

Abort to first stop at 30 feet, reassess

12

Bottom time exceeds table

Call EDU for advice

If no advice, use the :120 schedule for deepest depth attained

Do 30 minutes on 02 at 40 feet

Surface at 40 feet per min, do TT 6 with Max extensions

13

Loss of 50\50

Temporary
Shift to air, correct problem
Shift back, time on air counts

Permanent
Shift to air
Shift to 02 @ 50 feet
Do not exceed 16 minutes on 02 at 50 feet
Travel to 40 feet surDO2 after 40' stop

14

Delay to first stop

Less then one minute ignore

Greater than one minute round to the next whole minute and to BT recompute T/S

Perform any missed deeper stops at divers current depth do not go deeper

15

Delay leaving stop greater than 90 feet

Less than one minute ignore

Greater than one minute delay time to bottom time

Pick new schedule at present or current stop

If delay occurs between stops restart current stop time at completion of delay

Ignore any missed stops or time deeper than delay occurred

16

Delay leaving stop less than 90 feet

Less than one minute if ignore

Less then five minutes resume Normal D schedule at completion of delay

Greater than five minutes between 90 feet and 70 feet shift to air

At the completion of delay shift back to 50\50

Add time on air to bottom time

Ignore any missed stops deeper

17

02 toxicity between 90 and 60 fsw CONVULSIVE

Shift to Air, Vent divers, unaffected first
After Tonic Colonic, decompress to 50 on Air
@ 50 switch to 50/50, decompress to 40fsw, and SURD
If not breathing, surface with standby @ 30FPM administer ACLS
Leave unaffected diver in water to decompress

18

02 toxicity between 90 and 60 fsw NON CONVULSIVE

Up 10FSW and shift to air
Vent divers, affected first
Complete missed stop time at shallower depth on Air
Switch back to 50/50 at next stop

19

02 Toxicity @ 50 to 40 Non Convulsive

Up 10 FSW and shift to air
Vent divers, affected first
stay on air for 2X the remaining 50 FSW and 40FSW time
SUR D
Cant SUR D use Air or 02
-02 do :10 on air @ 30fsw swith to 02 complete schedule
-For Air, 3x remaining 02 time on Air @ each stop
-Alternatively, 3X remaining 02 time @ 30 FSW on Air, then shift to 02 @ 20 FSW for scheduled deco.

20

02 Toxicity @ 50 to 40 Convulsive

Shift to Air, vent divers, unaffected first
After tonic colonic phase
if 50/50 time remains @ 50fsw, 2X it on Air @ 50fsw
Sur D, add 40fsw time to first chamber period
If no 50/50 time remains @ 50FSW, SUR D add 40 Fsw time to First chamber period
Can't Sur D, stay on Air, 2x 50/50 stops and 3x 02 stops

21

In water DCS > 30'

Call DMO
30 fsw drop 10fsw, stay on 50/50 for 1.5x the stop
-decompress to 40fsw, 1.5x each stop
-Switch to 02 @ 40FSW for :30 min, surface do TT6

22

02 Toxicity @ 30FSW to 20FSW NON Convulsive

Shift to AIR, Vent divers, Sur D
Can't Sur D, occurs @ 30 FSW, up 10 FSW and shift
3x remaining 02 time on Air
Can't Sur D, occurs @ 20FSW, stay at 20FSW and shift
3X remaining 02 time on Air

23

In water DCS > 30'

Call DMO
30 fsw drop 10fsw, stay on 50/50 for 1.5x the stop
-decompress to 40fsw, 1.5x each stop
-Switch to 02 @ 40FSW for :30 min, surface do TT6

24

02 Toxicity @ 30FSW to 20FSW NON Convulsive

Shift to AIR, Vent divers, Sur D
Can't Sur D
Up 10' @ 30, 3X 0/2 on air, 20' stay 3X 02 on air

25

DCS during surface interval type I

Go to 50 FSW do neuro, Resolved, add :15 to 50 FSW period
Not resolved, TT5 if 2 or fewer periods, TT6 more than 2 periods

26

Exceed :05 surface interval

< :07 add half period to first period in chamber
> :07 go to 60fsw, TT5 for 2 or fewer periods due and TT6 for more than 2periods due.
Can't clear, go to deepest depth possible, go on 02, attempt to compress to 30fsw, 2x the number of periods due at attainable depth, :60 on 02 :15 Air Break.

27

DCS during surface interval type I

Go to 50 FSW do neuro, Resolved, add :15 to 50 FSW period
Not resolved, TT5 if 2 or fewer periods, TT6 more than 2 periods

28

DCS during surface interval type II

Go to 60FSW for TT6

29

Loss of 02 in chamber

Temp, air is dead time
Perm, 3X for Air or 2X for 50/50
If @ 50fsw go to 40fsw, allocate .1 @40, .2 @30, .7 @20.
If @ 30FSW do .3, 20FSW .7

30

02 Toxicity in chamber

First sign off 02, wait :15 until symptoms subside.
Resume 02 at POI,
Second sign or first sign a convulsion, off 02, after all symptoms subside, up 10FSW at 1fpm.
Resume on 02 @ POI @ new Depth
Symptom, shift to air, 3x remaining 02 on air, .1 @40FSW, .2 @ 30FSW, .7 @ 20FSW or .3 @ 30FSW, .7 @ 20.
