NITROX: Enriched Air Diver
The Enriched Air PADI course has become one of the most popular and is a first option for divers who want to increase their knowledge & skills after obtaining their basic certification. It’s easy to see why.
One of the first concepts a diver must learn from the very begining is that Nitrogen in the air becomes dangerous when compressed by the depth and breathed-in by the diver. This Nitrogen is released into the blood stream in tiny bubbles which limit the amount of deep dive time to shorter periods (to avoid high levels of nitrogen absortion).
