Abstract : A twelve month program of saturation-excursion diving operations was carried out to test newly developed tables for repetitive, no-decompression excursions from helium-oxygen saturation exposures at depths between 150 feet and 600 feet. 1126 excursions were performed in accordance with the tables. The extensive test program not only validated these tables but provided as well a massive confirmation of the conservative adequacy of the extrapolated M values of Workman in this depth range. The format for saturation final decompression was also modified and improved during this program. (Author)
