Almost every diver, post-Open Water certification, experiences concerns about Decompression Sickness (DCS), which remains a paramount rule in recreational diving. Dive computers have become indispensable tools in monitoring and mitigating DCS risks, with manufacturers continually enhancing their capabilities. Modern computers like the Suunto D range now incorporate 'Deep Stops,' a concept aimed at reducing bubble formation on ascent. These deep stops, recommended for dives beyond 12 meters, facilitate the safer release of nitrogen from tissues by adding an extra stop at deeper depths, helping to safeguard divers from DCS. It's essential for divers to ensure both they and their buddy adhere to deep stops to maximize safety.
