I would have liked to see her stay 10 minutes at 15'. She certainly could have gone down to 200psi or so without recrimination (as she acknowledges in her reply below mine here).

Is this some kind of arbitrary/proprietary tabel you have or just a "best guess" at prevention.

She would in all likely hood not been in the situation in the first place had she been on the proper mix. FTR I am not DIR (yet) I just beleive that one should use the right tool for the job, air in this case as in most is/was not the right tool.
Neiter is some made up on the fly with no basis deco profile.

I am not trying to flame anyone, please don't take offense, I'm just putting in my .02 for what its worth.
