From RF3.0: Managing Rebreather Accidents

During Rebreather Forum 3.0 I had the opportunity to ask a question to the accidents panel. I don’t think the proceedings are out yet but it was something like this:

Is there a quick “checklist for dummies” of some sort that could be used in case of a rebreather accident in case it happens in a remote and un-prepared location like the one I’m in?

Answer was no, there isn’t.

On the other hand, Martin Parker — the managing director of Ambient Pressure Diving, posted a worksheet in August. Hopefully DAN will also come out with something in the upcoming months.

For now, the APD worksheet (which is very unit specific) is available from AP’s website.

The Rebreather Forum 3: Consensus, Findings and Recommendations can be found here.
