(Fock A. Deep decompression stops. Diving and Hyperbaric Medicine. 2007; 37: 125-32.) Technical divers have adopted widely the practice of either adding deep decompression stops to their decompression profiles or using decompression models that incorporate deep stops in the belief that these techniques will reduce the incidence of decompression sickness. However, new evidence suggests that the gas kinetic model on which this practice is based is flawed. This paper reviews the historical… Expand
Theoretical tissue compartment inert gas pressures during a deep dive with and without deep decompression stops: a case analysis.
TLDR
The physiological effect of deep decompression stops during exceptional exposure, even when diving with gas switches, remains urgently to be determined to improve safe decompression following exceptional exposures. Expand

The importance of deep safety stops: Rethinking ascent patterns from decompression dives.
TLDR
Back before the concept of “technical diving” existed, I used to do more dives to depths of 54-66 m (180220 ft) than I care to remember, and it was clear that post-dive symptoms had more to do with inert-gas loading than with physical exertion or thermal exposure. Expand

TLDR
An analogue is described in which the conduction of heat simulates the diffusion of inert gas in the cellular material of the tissue type responsible for marginal symptoms of decompression sickness and indicates appreciable reductions in the total ascent time of a diver for no loss of safety.

TLDR
An analogue is described based on the similarity between gaseous diffusion and thermal conduction; this is used to predict optimal decompression. Expand

TLDR
A model has been developed in which bubble formation is initiated by spherical gas nuclei stabilized by surface-active skins of varying gas permeability and it is demonstrated that the model is in good agreement with data on rats and humans over a wide range of pressures. Expand

TLDR
Monitoring of nitrogen elimination in unanesthetized guinea pigs confirmed that inert gas washout rates decrease with decompression per se and can be explained simply on the basis of the decrease in driving force for nitrogen elimination caused by depositing gas into bubbles where they form in tissue in a somewhat random manner.

Tissue nitrogen elimination in oxygen-breathing pigs is enhanced by fluorocarbon-derived intravascular micro-bubbles.
TLDR
Intravascular micro bubbles generated by i.v. infusion of a small dose of a 2 % dodecafluoropentane (DDFP) emulsion very effectively enhanced denitrogenation by oxygen breathing and deserve study as a means to improve prevention and treatment of decompression sickness. Expand
