Page 1 of 2 1 2 Last Jump to page: Added Disclaimer as per nickb’s reply John if you were to standardize on gas choices for dil and bailout for ranges down to m, what would they be as this is where I see some divergence from OC choice? You also need to think about what you’ll use each cylinder well not O2 for? Mel Clark’s expertise really shines in this, her second text on the subject of rebreathers. Last edited by JPTaylor; at At my stage of the game this manual is a godsend.
I will look forward to her next book. It is non-unit specific though at times she will mention a Megladon or a Kiss unit which I suspect is because of her intimate knowledge of those units.

CCR Trimix Diving in a NutShell (for OC Trimix qualified divers)
No good movies on the plane Overall a great read on tmx and deep CCR diving. Just carrying that amount of gas around as luggage is a ballache and has consequences.
She uses clear, concise examples when it comes to numbers and formulas that if all you ever learned in the past was basic Nitrox you can fully understand the direction and concepts being explained. A few typos here and there, some syntax issues, and some uses of acronyms in areas I would not have used them, can all be cleaned in the next production run.
The book is in short production runs and will be available from Rebreather World Store shortly. I didn’t move to CCR as a gas-extender as a lot of people do; I did slmplified primarily for the logistic advantages. But, the information is applicable to all rebreathers whatever brand. Is this your first visit? Hello and welcome to our community! Anyhow, I don’t want to divert a very good thread with a tangent on personal preference but couldn’t resist so: Mel takes the opportunity here to explain some complex problems in a simple way.
That gave me time to do an information dump from Mel Clark’s new book into my already packed brain.
I’ve alluded to the opposite and will expand on it when I get the opportunity. Had a 30 hour trip home and read through the manual twice Once between Detroit and Tokyo, then again on the flight to Perth. Please amend, criticise as you wish!! This self-published page text is all but outstanding.

Her discussions of dive planning, what-ifs, and survival options are reminiscent of the way Billy Deans would have trained someone. The text is organized in nine chapters. If it could get in without me going “huh?

I would highly recommend this manual to anyone that is thinking of getting into tmx and deeper diving on the CCR, its a good base to start and gives the basics to build a sound understanding on.

She combines practical applications of diving to the CCR with helium-based mixtures. You mentioned CO2 as a throwaway comment – it needs to be expanded-on until people get tired hearing about it. I am kicking myself I didn’t buy some more copies as I have had 5 pm’s from Aussies in the last couple of days asking if I have spares. Originally Posted by dwhitlow.

This is a good post and I like it but I’m conscious that people could read it, and posts elsewhere, that make out that CCR trimix is trivial, especially for those already trained to normoxic OC level. The time now is Heliair Poor Mans Mix. If you have an OC Trimix background this should cover it!
After doing open-circuit dives in the m range, strapping-on a CCR can make you feel invincible and if things pan-out right, as they will times out ofyou are.
Simpliffied has done cxr wonderful job somplified this sometimes very confusing subject into plain english. It’s not a free ride. Originally Posted by nickb. Originally Posted by JPTaylor. I don’t have a five grand dog so I can do the barking hence I dive heliair. All times are GMT.
Oh, and heliair is the diving equivalent of walking around with bog paper trailing from your shoe.
