Title: Evaluation of Hand-Held CO2 Detectors.
Author: Downs Jr, EF
Abstract: Carbon dioxide build up in recompression chambers has for the most part been an unmeasured hazard. Frequent venting has provided a degree of safety, although again unquantified. NEDU evaluated the Draeger and Matheson-Kitagawa hand-held carbon dioxide detector under a variety of depths and carbon dioxide concentrations during a 1000 FSW saturation dive. The Draeger, currently available through standard stock, proved to be best suited for chamber carbon dioxide analysis.
