    Eurotek video interview 3 - Analysing Carbon Dioxide with Dr. Simon Mitchell

    Analysing Carbon Dioxide with Dr. Simon Mitchell



    Two years after our conversation about the dangers of CO2 during diving, Dr. Simon Mitchell is back at Eurotek to discuss the topic of hypercapnia.
    We want to know what exactly divers need to know about CO2 retention and breakthrough, and what the status is on CO2 analysers for rebreathers. The use of CO2 analyzers in rebreathers is critically reviewed, and the advantages and disadvantages of various approaches to analyzer positioning in the rebreather loop are discussed.

    A very informative interview by an expert on "breathing"!

    Wow, for me it was first post worth commenting in lat 2 years. :)

    I remember I was attending Dr. Simon presentation about CO2 retention at 2008 and was VERY impressed by his level of knowledge and how he explains things. I've filmed & watched his interview at least 10 times to understand topics, because at that time it was really important for me to understand possible implications of CO2 retention at big depths. It was a real pleasure to meet this man in person.

    Damn, It's a real shame I've missed this one. He is a real legend, and what I like the best, is how he explains things, he is making other believe that it's really understandable and you can get a grip on that if you really want to.

    Based on still-yet-to-be-released OR mCCR rebreather design Simon raised very valid concern about "dead space" and situation with shallow breath.

    My question goes to Dr. Simon, will the respiratory monitor, which gives a warnings when breathing rate let's say "too shallow and fast", help in easing the situation ?
