Abstract: The one man portable recompression system covered in this report is the first article developed for the U.S. Navy by Dixie Manufacturing Company. A prototype of this unit built by Battelle Memorial Institute was previously tested at the Navy Experimental Diving Unit and the results promulgated in NAVXDIVINGU Report 1-74 of 16 January 1974. It is not the intent of this test to repeat all aspects of that technical evaluation but to provide test criteria for first article acceptance. This unit (PRS) is intended as an emergency means of transporting an injured diver to a treatment facility while under pressure and provide immediate relief from illness during transportation. The (PRS) can be used under medical supervision to administer the treatment schedules of tables 1A, 2A, 3 and 4 of the U.S. Navy Diving Manual. (Author)
