Nitrox Diving - Few substantial advantages of nitrox diving are longer bottom times, less fatigue, longer dive times and shorter surface intervals. In recreational diving terms, enriched air nitrox (EANx) refers to any nitrogen/oxygen gas mixture with more than the 21 percent oxygen found in normal air. Enriched air has more oxygen than air does, which reduces the percentage of nitrogen. As a result, you inhale less nitrogen throughout the dive than if you’re using regular air.
