What is the primary benefit of using enriched air
The primary benefit of enriched air is to extend your no-decompression limits beyond
those of normal air. This has several advantages:
It extends your allowable bottom time.
It reduces any need to “push” (near) the air no-decompression limits.
It reduces your overall nitrogen load from multiple dives, so less nitrogen and less fatigue.
Enriched air extends your no-decompression limits in this way:
Our bodies absorb nitrogen while breathing air under pressure. Enriched air
replaces some of the nitrogen you would breathe underwater with oxygen, so
you absorb less nitrogen than you would for the same dive breathing normal air.
Our bodies metabolize and otherwise absorb the extra oxygen, so within limits, it
doesn’t pose any DCS problems.
This means you have longer no-decompression limits (more no stop dive time) for a
given depth than you do using air. How much longer depends on how much oxygen
is in the enriched air. Some examples comparing the no stop times for various depths
with air, EANx32 and EANx36 (based on the PADI RDP decompression model).
At 18 meters the Air Dive limit is 56 minutes
At 18 meters the EANx32 Dive limit is 95 minutes
At 18 meters the EANx36 Dive limit is 125 minutes
At 22 meters the Air Dive limit is 37 minutes
At 22 meters the EANx32 Dive limit is 60 minutes
At 22 meters the EANx36 Dive limit is 70 minutes
At 50 Feet the Air Dive limit is 80 minutes
At 50 feet the EANx32 Dive limit is 155 minutes
At 50 feet the EANx36 Dive limit is 220 minutes
At 80 Feet the Air Dive limit is 30 minutes
At 80 Feet the EANx32 Dive limit is 45 minutes
At 80 Feet the EANx36 Dive limit is 55 minutes
