Commercial Diving: Enriched Air Diving (Nitox) Definition, Requirements & Guidelines Mobile App
The Commercial Diving Enriched Air Diving (Nitox) Definition, Requirements & Guidelines mobile helps prepare commercial scuba diving teams and diving equipment for technical diving operations.
How does it work?
Easily accessible from any smartphone or tablet, the technical diver app helps diving supervisors and commercial dive centers increase dive safety and prevent oxygen toxicity in open water dives.
Nitrogen-oxygen diving (also called enriched-air or NITOX diving) is a technique where the O2 percentage in the compressed air breathing mixture is elevated above 21 percent, and the balance of N2 is reduced proportionately. Due to the reduction in the nitrogen content, a diver may work deeper or longer in deep water dives without decompression than a diver breathing air while maintaining the same N2 uptake. The diving safety app for NITROX diving provides a helpful set of checklist items for these dives that includes a risk assessment, diver certifications, diving equipment checks and important diver training information.
