Both amateur and professional divers should regularly consult dive tables to avoid suffering serious injuries or even death. How to Use Dive Tables presents a number of sample tables to help divers learn to read them properly. These tables tell divers how deep they can dive, how long they can remain under water, and how long they must wait before making subsequent dives on the same day. The United States Navy dive table provides for no-decompression diving and is used by many water enthusiasts. In this video, divers will be reminded why many people think it's safest to make decompression stops at different levels as they proceed downwards. While computerized dive tables are available, it's still important for divers to understand how the basic tables work so they'll always be in a position to safeguard their own lives. General safety precautions are also discussed. The video comes with a brief training guide.
