As I stated in the initial post, one of the falacies within the Buhlman models is that very concept that you were taught.

In very loose terms, the Buhlman models attempts to *bend* you by indicating a sturated tissue group at depth and then *un-bend* you by using a 15' safety stop. Note these are my descrpitive terms, not a real diagnosis of a true hit, I'm just trying to paint a picture.

As you have noted with respect to the M-values of each hypothetical tiisue compartment these compartments indicate a *slow* and a *fast* tissue group and the very notion that a *fast* compartment is cleaned up at 15' is simply a mis-application of the Haldane model. By incorporating deep stops into the profile you help clean up the fast tissue groups, by stoping at 15' you are allowing the slowere tiisue groups to clean up..

Does that make it any clearer???
