Tips for the Nitrox Diver

  • Find a dive center you can trust. If you thought getting air from a reputable dive center was important, getting an enriched air fill from a reputable blender is even more important. Look for a dive center with certified blenders and dependable analyzers. Make sure they are using all of the documentation techniques you learned in your PADI Enriched Air Diver course.
  • Get a nitrox-enabled dive computer. The biggest drawback to enriched air diving is dive planning. A nitrox dive computer makes enriched air diving easier and safer.
  • Become an expert with your dive computer. Making mistakes with your dive computer when diving enriched air can lead to serious accidents. Make sure you know how to use your dive computer. This means knowing how to properly set the FO2 (fraction of oxygen) and PO2 (partial pressure of oxygen). It also means understanding alerts for exceeding maximum operating depths and maximum oxygen exposure.
