Enriched Air, also known as Enriched Air Nitrox or EANx, contains less nitrogen than regular air. Breathing less nitrogen means longer dives and shorter surface intervals. No wonder the Enriched Air Diver is one of the most popular specialties.
You’ll learn why diving with air that contains more oxygen and less nitrogen gives you more time underwater, and what to consider when it comes to equipment when used with Enriched Air Nitrox (EANx). During a hands-on lesson and two optional* dives, you’ll learn: How to manage the effects of oxygen. Analyze the oxygen content in your tank. Set your dive computer to dive with Enriched Air Nitrox (EANx).
