    Indeed. Remote diving calls for a more conservative deco, as well.

    There's nothing shallow about diving two weeks continuously on the wrecks of the Fourth Fleet Anchorage (San Francisco Maru, Aikoku Maru, Nagano Maru, Shotan Maru et al) all ranging 45m to 57m; and the Oite Destroyer or the Katsuragisan Maru both near the North Pass at 63m and 66m deep respectively.
    Paradoxically, that's what the NEDU study seems to be implying with regards to deep air decompression diving (I would still like to see an additional NEDU lab study testing deep stops, but with the use of trimix standard gases with intermediate Eanx50 deco mixes and pure oxygen). I still use RD similar to 30/85 GF's, with S-curve deco profile sequences on Eanx50 starting at 21m, but now extending the O2 profile at 6m out 10 to 20min on top of what RD prescribes, and with shorter deep stops --especially if using high fractional N2 content bottom mixes like 20/20 trimix or Deep Air. The Petrel is there to track CNS O2 exposure and inert gas loading real time during the dive and residual inert gas retention over as many continuous days or weeks that I'm deep diving with deco.

    Another factor IMO/IME is inflammation due to muscularskeletal/joint injury --both of my DCS I incidents coincided with just prior shoulder-upper arm muscle/joint strains due to manipulating stage bottles (left shoulder Truk 2007); and fatigue/strain from cruising & grand touring on scooter (right upper arm Bikini Atoll 2013 --the USS Saratoga aircraft carrier being 888'/270m long, depth range 18m to 57m), see this link:
