Pelagian approach to Instant Cell Validation

Pelagian approach to Instant Cell Validation- A pro active way to really find out if the sensors make sense is to have the diluent FgO2 x ambient pressure pre calculated in 5 m increments on your wrist slate or wet notes. Then go to the nearest depth and exhale half a breath from your nose and inhale slowly. If you inhale very slow for 10 seconds you will get a very accurate reading.

Active Sensor Validation (ASV)

Active Sensor Validation-allow the manual  injection of diluent gas directly on the oxygen sensors at any point during a dive. This  feature served two functions: it purged any condensation that might have accumulated  on the sensors (thereby restoring function to sensors blocked by a film of water on the  sensing membrane) and, more importantly, it exposed the oxygen sensors to a known  fraction of oxygen.
