    Oxygen poisoning seizure > how to react ?

    Sending someone to the surface is just a huge unknown. You’re totally reliant on other people who may or may not spot your buddy. Then you need them to actually recover your buddy. That’s just an inordinate risk. You always have the option of immediately descending and resuming your...

    Or just hang tight and let them regain consciousness. Ones “action” can simply be patience.

    Oxygen poisoning seizure > how to react ?

    Priority 1 is airway management. Keep reg in mouth, don’t ascend or descend until after the seizure stops. If you can get the reg back in their mouth, do so. To my knowledge, it is unclear if the glottis closes during oxygen seizures. If so, an ascent during this time could cause a lung...

    Oh no! My 72s are too small for tech classes! :(

    I would LOVE to see one of these moving part pin burst disk things. I’ve been in possession of a lot of old valves. USD, Dacor, both J and K and ever once seen what you’re describing.

    It’s not. There’s no pin involved.

    Never seen this needle contraption you speak of. It’s a thin piece of copper. Nothing punctures it’s, it just fails when the pressure gets too high and vents out the plug.

    Where should I start to approach the rebreather world

    It’s just bailout on the sides. The thing in the middle is the rebreather. It’s narrower than the jj, just a little longer.

    Don’t act like you got my joke the first time. I know the truth!

    No bigger than any other rebreather :)

    At what age did you switch to the rebreather? (From OC)

    I was 27. 3 and 4 stage OC trimix dives were somewhat normal. And that’s not normal.

    I guess everywhere that cave diver dives has the floor right under them at all times.

    Necklace Bungee Knot

    I put the bungee under the cable tie that holds the mouthpiece on the reg. And pull it tight AF.

    Hog wrapping a bail out hose under a loop on a rebreather.

    No flow restrictor. I have yet to hear of a rupture, but I suppose yes it would leak aggressively if it straight up burst. I find that to be quite unlikely. A more plausible scenario would be some sort of oring failure. If you wanted to only top off when your volume got low, consider how many...

    Hog wrapping a bail out hose under a loop on a rebreather.

    It takes two failures to drain your gas. A leak, and not doing anything about it. The RB manifold is just like a doubles manifold, you can isolate it. Trimix is always sold by volume. Not sure how you figure topping two tanks with x liters of gas is any more than topping off one tank with the...

    Hog wrapping a bail out hose under a loop on a rebreather.

    The manifold let’s you access the volume of two tanks through one regulator. Can’t do that with independents. So if you’re OOG, I can give you access to the entirety of my bailout volume in one go.

    Hog wrapping a bail out hose under a loop on a rebreather.

    I don’t solo dive dude. And I don’t get separated from my buddy. If I legit did get separated, sure, I’d surface. Not a big deal.
