The part that really sucked was that I had 30 min deco and spend most of it dry heaving into the unit. I so incapacitated that switching to OC was impossible, I had no buddy so I had to stay on the loop. I was sure that the cause of the vomiting had nothing to do with the unit so I felt comfortable staying on the loop.

    I wouldn't bother with a BOV, except that I am interested in trying out a FFM. When I had my incidents, I decided it was better to keep the reg in my mouth. I don't really want to try it again to see if I could keep myself from inhaling water after a series of convulsions. So the mask bite piece and tube cleared themselves OK?

    I have the Shrimp on my desk. A standard OC reg would be easier to flush out from just looking at it. I would not puke though it.

    I'm prone to seasickness and I always take the mouthpiece out to blow chunks: once on CC; and 3-4 times on open circuit perhaps. I have nothing to add there.

    Puking through BOV

    Maybe Jakub can put together a small pneumatic macerator system that fits inside the bov. You can power it with the LP hose. Just don't let your tongue wander too far. I hate to rehash an old joke I used on CDF but I still feel that "Chunk-buster" is the best name to use.

    I still need one on my sink, but instead I'm dreaming up my manifold configuration and BOV setup. It's a wonder why my wife is peeved.
