Historical diving Diving procedures and tables are regularly reviewed by the organizations that emit them. However, it is not uncommon that the previous publication is used as a reference to design the new one. For this reason, it is interesting to consult such documents to understand how procedures have evolved and whether the newly published document is an evolution of a previous concept or an all-new conceptualization.
