PADI RDP Exam Questions.

PADI RDP Exam Questions. IDC Deco Theory. Boracay, Philippines. Sri Lanka. Maafushi, Maldives. Koh Tao, Thailand.

PADI RDP Exam Questions come in two types.  The first PADI RDP Exam Questions are on deco theory.  The next PADI IDC Exam Questions are dive profiles with the RDP table and eRDPml.

John Scott Haldane, Fellow, New College Oxford, made the first deco models and we still use them in our computers today.

You can teach the PADI Open Water Diver Course with a dive computer.  The new 2010 PADI Divemaster Course does not have many PADI RDP Exam Questions.  Your PADI Instructor Exam has 12 PADI RDP Exam Questions and you will need to use the table or eRDPml for some of them.  For PADI RDP Exam Questions, you will need to work out the time of day that three dives end.  You will have the start time of the first dive, three depths and three times.  You will need to do them from deepest, getting more shallow with each one.  You will need to use min. surface intervals.  You can only use safety stops when the RDP tells you to.  Some of these dives will be multilevel.

I. The Haldanean Deco Model.
1. Who is credited with developing the basic decompression model we use today in most computers and dive tables?
2. Describe the structure and operation of a Haldane model.
3. What are meant by compartment, halftime and M-value?
4. Why do you need to know your approx. altitude when diving?
5. What is the relationship between the Haldane model and the human body and how far can you rely on a model?

II. U.S. Navy Tables and Repetitive Diving.
6. Why was the U.S. Navy (USN) table at one time the “standard” for recreational diving?

III. The Recreational Dive Planner.
7. What is the basis for the USN table’s repeat diving surface interval credit and why does the RDP use a different basis?
8. For whom was the RDP developed and how does its testing contrast with the testing of the USN table?
9. What effect does the RDP’s repeat diving surface interval credit have compared to the USN tables?
10. Why are there two forms of the RDP?
11. Why can’t pressure groups from the RDP be used on the USN tables or any other tables?

IV. Dive Computers.
12. How do modern dive computers apply deco. models to provide more no decompression dive time?
13. How do computers compare with each other and the RDP with respect to surface interval credit and M-values?

V. Special Rules, Recommendations and Situations Using the RDP and Computers.
14. What are the general rules and recommendations for diving with the RDP, inc. for. Flying after diving. Emergency deco. Omitted deco?
15. What are the recommendations for diving with dive computers?

VI. RDP Table and eRDPml Use Review.
16. Demo. how to find a no deco. limit for a first and repetitive dive using both the RDP table and the eRDPml.
17. Demo. how to plan a multilevel dive using the eRDPml.
18. Using both the RDP table and the eRDPml, demo. how to do dive profiles for three or more dives.
