Dick Rutkowski Discusses Nitrogen in Diving

Did you know air is a mixture of 21% oxygen, 78% nitrogen, and approx. 1% other trace gases? “The acronym NITROX means any combination of oxygen and nitrogen. The first breath you took when you came into this world was a nitrox mix – 21 oxygen.” One aspect of diving that involves O2 is the introduction of nitrox – utilizing higher percentages of O2 in a typical mix. Tune in as Richard “Dick” Rutkowski (NAUI #4005), with Hyperbarics International in Key Largo, Florida, discusses nitrogen! Dick is a pioneer in the fields of hyperbaric medicine, diving medicine and diver training, especially in the use of breathing gases.
