Haldane and the first staged decompression tables

In 1908, The Prevention of Compressed-air Illness published by John Scott Haldane, Arthur Boycott and Guybon Damant covers the detailed studies of Leonard Hill and their own on the cause and symptoms of decompression sickness. The publication also has the first table proposing staged decompression with stops to stop and avoid decompression sickness.
