Why do you use an enriched oxygen mix for your diving?

I normally dive with a 100lb tank. How will nixtrox help or work for me?

I have just booked onto a Nitrox Course. I recently had a dive on nitrox in Dubai, so decided to take the cause. I’m lead to believe that one of the benefits would be for an older diver, as I am 58 years old and would be more susceptible to decompression sickness. Is this true?

We don’t yet fully understand possible individual risk factors for Decompression Illness but, ‘older age’ is often seen as a risk factor.
Nitrox will help to reduce that risk and is a highly recommended course that every scuba diver should take.

I use nitrox for the increased NDL limits and the other benefits. At 64, I have no trouble testifying to the increase in energy and overall less fatigue while using “geezer gas.” I will use it whenever it is available.

So, in that example of the aircraft carrier your buddy also used the same mixes?

If you really want to get to the crux of what every dive shop in the world wants to get to …. 5:00 is the answer.

The vast majority of our YouTube viewers are in the States, where feet and inches still rule – will have to start using feet AND metres to keep it global!

All my dives are on nitrox even dives to 40 metres. (26%) The only time I don’t dive nitrox is when I’m below 40 metres or in some developing countries which might not have nitrox available in certain locations. Dive deeper for longer on nitrox, then use advance nitrox for deco when you get into tech diving. 🤿👍🏽

There is scientific proof of feeling better (less tired) on nitrox, you learn about the physiology of this when you do a tech diving course! 🤿👍🏽

I use Nitrox on most holiday dives to maximize NDL on repeat dives. Here in the Netherlands I mostly dive air since a Nitrox fill is harder to get, dives are often shallower and limited to one per day. I did Advanced Nitrox & Decompression Procedures two years ago and have a much better understanding of custom mixes and how to optimally use Nitrox now.

I like diving nitrox for the increase in bottom time and reduced surface interval. I get more time in the water.

I plan on doing nitrox training this winter. I would like to get double tanks, either twin steel 80s or twin steel 100s

I use Nitrox on every dive where it is available – reduces tiredness and seasickness for me with better bottom times and shorter surface intervals – win, win, win, win!
