Speciality Course “Enriched Air Diver”
What is NITROX ?
Enriched Air (sometimes called “NITROX”) means, that the air contains more than 21 % Oxygen.
In sport/ recreational diving we use enriched air with a maximum of 40 % oxygen.
Why NITROX ?
Divers use enriched air to increase the decompression limits compared to the decompression limits of compressed air.
When you dive with enriched air a part of the nitrogen, which you would breathe in under water, is replaced by oxygen, so that you absorb less nitrogen than you would have done on the same dive using compressed air.
