Nitrox is any combination of nitrogen and oxygen. You have been breathing Nitrox since the day you were born. The air that we breathe is comprised of approximately 21% oxygen and 79% nitrogen. Nitrox mixtures with percentages of oxygen greater than 21% are called Enriched Air Nitrox (EANx). As an EANx diver you are allowed to dive with a mix of up to 40% Oxygen. The commonly used EANx mixtures are EAN 32 (32% oxygen / 68% nitrogen) and EAN 36 (36% oxygen/64% nitrogen).
For example, if you dive to 26 meters on air, your no decompression limit is 20 minutes. But, diving on EANx36 gets you 50 minutes of no decompression time - an increase of 30 minutes! It's perfect for underwater photographers, wreck divers and anyone who wants to stay down longer.
