Enriched Air Nitrox (EANx). Nitrox is nothing more than air with additional oxygen added to reduce the concentration of nitrogen. While the additional oxygen offers no benefit in and of itself (and can, in fact, pose additional risk at depth), breathing less nitrogen provides divers with several benefits. Among them:
- You enjoy longer no-decompression limits - especially on repetitive dives.
- You reduce the risk of decompression sickness compared to making the same series of dives using air.
- Further benefits may include improved gas consumption, reduced fatigue and an overall feeling of well-being.
If you own a modern dive computer, odds are it is capable of tracking your exposure to both air and Nitrox. Isn’t it time you started taking advantage of your computer's capabilities?
