The basic principal to Nitrox (Enriched Air) is that by adding extra Oxygen to an air cylinder will decrease the amount of nitrogen in the cylinder. Nitrogen is what reduces our bottom time and can cause decompression sickness. Nitrox almost doubles the amount of bottom time you have depending on the mix. It is a cleaner mixture as it is double filtered and only goes into dedicated cylinders. This class is required before you can use Nitrox as there are some safety issues you need to learn about.
