A theory, OK?. Not of my invention, either. The idea, which came out of studies like Hills' in the 60's of pearl divers is that lots of repetative diving actually increases the body's ability to absorb decompression stress without symptoms. Another example is the Mosquito Indians who do 8 to 10 100 fsw dives a day. Some of them get turned into turnips but most of them get away with this, at least for a while. One explanation I've read supporting the theory is that repetative diving may surpress the compliment system which may in turn reduces blood agglutination which in turn may help offgassing. This is the crude recitation and any diving physiologist would have a fit reading this.
As for Doppler services, lets discuss in person tomorrow night.
