He said Draeger Dolphin, not Inspiration. While I
agree that the Inspiration has a worse than average
safety record, some of it has been pure Darwinism.
Unit won't calibrate, do the dive anyway, die.

And most if not all of the Dolphin deaths have been
similar. Fill the tank with air, use the oriface
for 40 mix, die. Fill the tank with 40, use the
oriface for 60, die.

Rebreathers are very unforgiving.


Chuck, with 300-400 Draeger Dolphin dives.
