The Defence and Civil Institute of Environmental Medicine is Canada’s centre of expertise for defence research and development in human performance and protection, human-systems integration and operational medicine. The DCIEM Tables are the result of more than 20 years of research and development. DCIEM pioneered the use of digital decompression computers and has used computer-decompression models since the beginning of the project. DCIEM has amassed a computer database containing information on thousands of dives.

Air decompression tables were developed in the 1980’s for Canadian Forces operational use, these tables have also been adopted by foreign navies, commercial diving companies and other civilian organizations. The Sport Diving Tables were a result of the original air diving tables adapted for use by recreational divers and have had a wide acceptance by the sport diving community.

The tables have been developed and validated by the impressive Diving Research Facility resources. This facility includes a 7 foot diameter hyperbaric chamber that can be filled with fresh water and chilled to 3ºC and pressurized to simulate dives to 1800m below sea level. Since its installation in 1978 the facility has been used for more than 8,800 dives.

Based on over 20 years of decompression research at DCIEM, these tables provide a more conservative approach to decompression procedures than those published by the United States Navy and the Royal Navy. Selected profiles were tested extensively using the Doppler ultrasonic bubble detector as an aid to assessing the severity of the decompression stress produced by these tables. The tables were tested in a hyperbaric chamber with wet-working divers in cold water at 10C as well as with dry-resting divers. No realistic decompression procedures can totally eliminate the occurrence of decompression sickness. However, these tables are believed to be safer than most existing tables.

“The importance of DCIEM Diving Tables cannot be over estimated. The wealth of technical research and field testing behind these tables ensures that these are some of the safest tables currently available. It must also be emaphasised that as UK divers we are almost always diving in cold water conditions (up to 18 degrees C) and all DCIEM Tables are specifically designed with cold water use in mind.”
