Few things have revolutionized recreational diving in the past decade as much as the introduction of Enriched Air Nitrox (EANx). Nitrox is nothing more than the air you are breathing right now with some additional oxygen added to reduce the concentration of nitrogen.
While the additional oxygen offers no benefit in and of itself (and can, in fact, pose additional risk at depth), breathing less nitrogen provides divers with several benefits.
- You enjoy longer no-decompression limits and shorter surface intervals — especially on repetitive dives.
- You reduce the risk of decompression sickness compared to making the same series of dives using air.
- Further benefits may include improved gas consumption, reduced fatigue and an overall feeling of wellbeing.
- If you own a modern dive computer, odds are it is capable of tracking your exposure to both air and Nitrox. Isn’t it time you started taking advantage of your computer’s capabilities?
Things that you learn as part of this program:
- Enriched Air Nitrox: The advantages and drawbacks
- Equipment for diving EANx
- Using standard dive tables with Nitrox
- Managing oxygen exposure
