Diving with nitrox … more and more popular.
What exactly is Enriched Air and what advantages do I have by taking this Nitrox Course?
Since our breathing air is composed of approx. 78% nitrogen, approx. 21% oxygen and approx. 1% of other gases, we can say that we already breathe NITROX the whole time.
NITROX is an artificial word that forms from the English gas names Nitrogen (Nitrogen) and Oxygen (Oxygen) and refers to all gas mixtures, which are composed of these two gases.
When diving Enriched Air mixtures are usually use in which the oxygen content is usually increased to 32% and 36%. This inevitably means that the nitrogen content must be reduced to 67% or 63% respectively.
This results in various advantages:
Using normal air profiles, the reduced nitrogen content leads to a lower nitrogen saturation and, as a result, a lower risk of decompression sickness.
This is particularly interesting on vacation, especially if several days of diving are planned with many repetitive dives. In cold waters, Nitrox is beneficial as well.
The best way to enjoy a dive is to dive relaxed and not “tired”. Enriched Air offers this advantage.
Many divers also describe that they do not feel so “tired” after the dive with Enriched Air.
The reduced nitrogen content extends non-deco times using Enriched Air profiles compared to compressed air.
- Increased safety
- More comfort
- Increase of non-decompression limits
Course procedure / preparation:
In this course, preparation is an important part.
At the beginning of the Nitrox Course, all review questions in the manual must be answered. An important part is the handling of the diving table! You will receive two more tables in the familiar RDP form (32% / 36% O2).
If you have any problems with the RPD for regular air, please contact us during this Nitrox course. We will be happy to help you.
