Breathing gas, mixture of nitrogen and oxygen.

Myths and truths about diving on NITROX

InHenry Fleuss made what was possibly the first Nitrox dive using a rebreather. Training standards for nitrox certification suggest the composition must be verified by the diver by using an oxygen analyzer before use. Nitrox is known by many names: The main benefit is reduced decompression risk. There are two general types of Nitrox blends used for diving: In a survey by R. Posted 11 Nutrox, Diving for Science nifrox This page was last edited on 15 Decemberat Many divers also report a benefit of being less tired after diving with Nitrox than after a regular dive, particularly when making repetitive dives in a day or over the course of several days while on a dive trip or ntrox boat.

Retrieved 28 July The longer and deeper a diver is underwater, the more nitrogen enters your system.

Nitrox – Wikipedia

This is especially the case when we are practicing successive dives. Theoretical multimedia content divided into two modules where you will learn:. Archived from the original on As a result, the Nitrox diver may spend more time underwater, nitroz time on decompression stops and surface intervals, and in some cases, may not need to make them at all.

Skin Diver would later go into bankruptcy. Theory session and two enriched air dives. You can also get more info in the footer at the link” Where we are “. If you do two 25 min dives to 25 meters 83 feet with air, the surface time will be at least 2 h 19 min in no decompression limits.


When we are diving on EANx, we breathe a mix with a lower percentage of N2 than contained in air. The exact values of the extended no-stop times vary depending on the decompression model used to derive the tables, but as an approximation, it is based on the partial pressure of nitrogen at the dive depth.

Partial pressure blending using pure oxygen decanted into the cylinder before topping up with air may involve very high oxygen fractions and oxygen partial pressures during the decanting process, which constitute a relatively high fire hazard. Theory session and dive simulation Option 2: Acceptable maximum ppO 2 varies depending on the application: This is why only divers who have learned how to manage this additional oxygen in the mix and completed a Nitrox certification course can dive with Enriched Air Nitrox.

In a fire, the pressure in a gas cylinder rises in direct proportion to its absolute temperature. A solution to either is to ascend to a nitrlx depth. Can you imagine the possibilities Enriched Air breathing during a diving trip?

During the dives, we will pay special attention to our diving computers to keep on the right depth limits and,of course, enjoy more bottom time. Since Nitrox has more oxygen in it, and bucel is actually toxic at bhceo depths read why this isNitrox divers have an increased risk of oxygen toxicity. It also reduces the chances of having common complications that divers may suffer like nitrogen narcosis and decompression sickness.

Journal of Experimental Biology. Normally, however, the most oxygen-lean of the diver’s decompression gases would be used for this purpose, since descent time spent reaching a depth where bottom mix is no longer hypoxic is normally small, and the distance between this depth and the MOD of any nitrox nitrpx gas is likely to be very short, bucwo it occurs at all.

Therefore, if your air consumption is not altered by using EANx instead of air, the duration of the dive will not become longer by the sheer fact of using EANx instead of air. Bennett and Elliott’s physiology and medicine of diving 5th Rev ed. Under IANTD and ANDI rules for use niteox nitrox, which are followed by most dive resorts around the world, [ citation needed ] filled nitrox cylinders are signed out personally in a gas blender log book, which contains, for each cylinder and fill, the cylinder number, the measured oxygen bucel composition, the signature of the receiving diver who should have personally measured the oxygen fraction before taking deliveryand the calculated maximum operating depth for that mix.


In its early days of introduction to non-technical divers, nifrox has occasionally also been known by detractors by less complimentary terms, such as “devil gas” or “voodoo gas” a term now sometimes used with pride. What do the dives consist of? Pyle stop Ratio decompression. Very simple, diving with enriched air higher oxygen and lower nitrogen content gives you more bottom time. The constituent gas percentages are nitrkx the gas blender aims for, but the final actual mix may vary from the specification, and so a small flow of gas from the cylinder must be measured with an oxygen analyzerbefore the cylinder is used underwater.

What does the course include? Use of nitrox may cause a reduced ventilatory response, and when breathing dense gas at the deeper limits of the usable range, this may result in carbon dioxide retention when exercise levels are high, with an increased risk of loss of consciousness.

Some training agencies, such as PADI and Technical Diving Internationalteach the use of two depth limits to protect against oxygen toxicity. The term Oxygen Enriched Air OEN was accepted by the American scientific diving community, but although it is probably the most unambiguous and simply descriptive term yet proposed, it was resisted by the recreational diving community, sometimes in favour of less appropriate terminology.
