TODAY WE WANT TO SAY CONGRATS TO CAROLINE, CRAIG AND JEAN FOR THEIR NITROX SPECIALITY CERTIFICATION.
What are the Benefits of Nitrox?
In scuba diving, “nitrox” refers to a breathing gas with a higher percentage of oxygen and a lower percentage of nitrogen than normal air. Tanks filled with nitrox must bear a clear label that reads “Enriched Air Nitrox.” Nitrox provides several benefits for divers.
The unsafe absorption of nitrogen into the body’s tissues limits dive times with normal air. Because nitrox contains a lower percentage of nitrogen, your body absorbs less of this gas during a dive, meaning that you can stay underwater for longer. Nitrox does not allow for unlimited dive time, however. You must follow standard dive time and decompression tables specific to nitrox diving.
