NITROX DIVER

Mark Scott’s Nitrox Training course in Nha Trang, Vietnam teaches divers the benefits, hazards, and proper procedures for using nitrox mixes from 22 through 40[1]. Here are some of the benefits of using nitrox for scuba diving:

– **Extended bottom time**: Nitrox allows divers to stay underwater for longer periods of time compared to regular air. This is because nitrox has a lower percentage of nitrogen, which reduces the risk of decompression sickness.

– **Reduced fatigue**: Since nitrox has less nitrogen, it can reduce the amount of fatigue a diver experiences during and after a dive

– **Less surface interval time**: Nitrox can reduce the amount of time a diver needs to spend on the surface between dives, allowing for more time underwater.

– **Safer diving**: Nitrox can reduce the risk of decompression sickness, which can be a serious and potentially life-threatening condition.

Mark Scott’s Nitrox Training course is designed to teach divers how to safely use nitrox and take advantage of its benefits.

Using Nitrox in scuba diving has several benefits, including:

– **Extended bottom time**: Nitrox allows divers to stay underwater for longer periods of time compared to regular air. This is because Nitrox has a lower percentage of nitrogen, which reduces the risk of decompression sickness.

– **Reduced fatigue**: Since Nitrox has less nitrogen, it can reduce the amount of fatigue a diver experiences during and after a dive.

– **Less surface interval time**: Nitrox can reduce the amount of time a diver needs to spend on the surface between dives, allowing for more time underwater.

– **Safer diving**: Nitrox can reduce the risk of decompression sickness, which can be a serious and potentially life-threatening condition.

– **Increased safety margins**: Nitrox can increase safety margins when diving within no-stop limits for air[3].

– **Shorter surface intervals**: Breathing Nitrox also gives shorter surface intervals, which is a great advantage, especially if you want to dive again.

– **Reduced nitrogen absorption**: A Nitrox diver absorbs less nitrogen for a given depth and dive time than a diver who uses air. This means that the diver has less nitrogen to off-gas during a required surface interval, which can drastically shorten it[1].

– **Longer repetitive dive times**: If a diver engages in more than one dive per day, Nitrox becomes particularly useful. The diver will have a longer allowable bottom time on a repetitive dive than a diver using air because the Nitrox diver has absorbed less nitrogen[2].

Overall, Nitrox can be a great option for divers who want to stay underwater longer, reduce fatigue, and increase safety margins. However, it is important to note that divers need to go through special training and learn certain procedures in handling this gas before using it in scuba diving[6].
