Wayne, you write:
. "If we need to go Up, we might take one breath at 100 feet another at 70, another at 40, slowing and getting it together at 20 then up to the surface. By the time we are at 20, we are not OOA and we are consuming much less air from the bottle."
How does that work in a panic ascent? It doesn't, of course, and SA has never been tested in that situation because how do you field test real panic?
If SA is used as you suggest, then why have one in the first place? Purposely run out of air at depth then calmly switch to SA? What a waste of money.
