Abstract : This report covers an investigation of halogenated hydrocarbons in Navy divers' breathing air. It covers compounds which have been found in divers' breathing air and their maximum observed concentrations. The OSHA limit of these compounds and the effects of the pressure on these limits is covered. Various detection techniques are discussed with a recommendation for a detector system which will detect these compounds as a group on a pass or fail basis. A recommended method for expressing total halogenated hydrocarbons as a group is also presented.
