• U.S. Navy Diving Manual (Revision 6, April 2008)

    Since the 1950s, the U.S. Navy Diving Manual has served as the internationally recognized standard for allowable exposure while breathing compressed air at varying depths. For many years, the 1956/1957 Diving Manual "air tables" also provided the prescribed decompression schedules for dive profiles that exceeded allowable exposure limits. Due to concern over unacceptable rates of decompression sickness and key research on hyperbaric medicine that has developed mathematical models for gas exchange in human tissues, the U.S. Navy has now totally revised the Manual's air tables to make use of this valuable new research. These changes, together with those to the Manual's other sections, represent the most comprehensive updating of Navy diving procedures since 1956. Among the key sections affected by this thoroughgoing revision are: Air decompression definitions; Emergency procedures; Repetitive dives; Variations in rate of ascent; Surface-supplied mixed gas diving procedures; Diagnosis and treatment of decompression sickness and arterial gas embolism; Recompression chamber operation. In addition to these key updates, the Manual provides extensive information on medical treatment for dive injuries; dangerous, predatory, and venomous marine animals; and many other topics of interest.

The general requirements of national defenseand the specific require ments of underwater reconnaissance, demolition, ordnancedisposal, construction, ship maintenance, search, rescue and salvage operationsrepeatedly give impetus to training and development. Navy diving is no longerlimited to tactical combat operations, wartime salvage, and submarine sinkings.Fleet diving has become increasingly important and diversified since World WarII. A major part of the diving mission is inspecting and repairing naval vessels tominimize downtime and the need for dry-docking.

  • U.S. Navy Diving Manual REVISION 6

    U.S. Navy Diving Manual REVISION 6The origins of diving are firmly rooted in man’s need and desire to engage in maritime commerce, to conduct salvage and military operations, and to expand the frontiers of knowledge through exploration, research, and development.Diving, as a profession, can be traced back more than 5,000 years. Early divers confined their efforts to waters less than 100 feet deep, performing salvage work and harvesting food, sponges, coral, and mother-of-pearl. A Greek historian, Herodotus, recorded the story of a diver named Scyllis, who was employed by the Persian King Xerxes to recover sunken treasure in the fifth century B.C.From the earliest times, divers were active in military operations. Their missions included cutting anchor cables to set enemy ships adrift, boring or punching holes in the bottoms of ships, and building harbor defenses at home while attempting to destroy those of the enemy abroad. Alexander the Great sent divers down to remove obstacles in the harbor of the city of Tyre, in what is now Lebanon, which he had taken under siege in 332 B.C.
