Example text

This law has much less relevance to diving medicine than Boyle’s Law. However, it should be remembered when considering gas volumes and how they may change. Boyle’s and Charles’ Laws may be combined and used if temperature and pressure both change – from P1 and T1 to P2 and T2 with a volume change from V1 to V2. The combined laws can be expressed as the universal gas equation: P1 × V1 P2 × V2 = T1 T2 A temperature-pressure problem that often causes discord can be used to illustrate the use of this equation.

This reading is called an absolute pressure. The second method measures pressures above or below local pressure. These readings are called gauge pressures. At sea level, the absolute pressure is 1 atmosphere (1 ATA) and the gauge pressure is 0. These units are commonly abbreviated to ATA and ATG. A basic knowledge of the physics and physiology of diving is essential to understand most of the medical problems encountered. Aspects of physics and physiology that have a wide application to diving are discussed in this chapter.

A consequence of this is that a cylinder that contains enough air for 100 minutes at 1 ATA would last about 50 minutes at 2 ATA (10 metres) or 20 minutes at 5 ATA (40 metres) for dives with the same energy expenditure. This is because the gas in the cylinder expands to a smaller volume when it is released against the ambient pressure at depth than it would if used at the surface. A cylinder that contains 5000 litres of gas if it is released at the sea surface would yield only 1000 litres of gas if it is released at 5 ATA, or 40 metres.
