In any case, I would say this still shows how strange the model is: We have to artificially reset parameters between two dives. But of course „between dives“ can be somewhat arbitrary: If you only surface for a few minutes and then descend again, are these „two dives“ (which require a reset in between and how does your body know that it has to reset itself, after all this is what we are supposed to simulate) or is this a single dive (without reset)? What I take away is the impression that this does not make a lot of sense.

So, err, should I, or shouldn't I? The discussion left me thinking that
VPM-B clearly is even more bogus and weird than I thought before, but I'm
not sure we came to a conclusion what to do here...
