Nitrox Course

2 Lessons

Nitrox is becoming more and more popular with recreational divers who want to increase their safety whilst diving. In brief the nitrogen in the air that we breathe underwater is the gas responsible for limited bottom times and decompression sickness. We replace some of that nitrogen with oxygen that a body can use and does not need to get rid of. Nitrox therefore is about increasing safety.
