What gas is inside the scuba divers tank?

In recreational diving, most divers use compressed air (as in the normal air we breather at the surface). Some divers are also trained to use special gas mixes called Nitrox which have a higher oxygen content and lower Nitrogen. Professional (or commerical) divers tend to use more advance mixes such as Heliox or Trimix which combine Oxygen, Nitrogen and Helium.


What gas in the blood of divers can cause the bends?

ALL gasses can cause the bends (even oxygen in extreme levels). But for most divers it is nitrogen and for deep mixed gas technical divers it can also be helium that they added to their gas mix. However, it is not the blood divers are worried about (even though that is the transport mechanism), it is the gas that expands in the cells and tissues.

What gas is mixed with oxygen to allow divers to go deeper?

Most very deep dives are done in trimix, which is a mix of oxygen (actually very little of that), helium and nitrogen.For really deep dives, divers use heliox, which is a mix of pure helium and oxygen.And for really stupidly deep dives, divers use hyrdeliox(hydrogen, helium and oxygen).


How do you use divers as a sentence?

A person who dives?

People who dive are usually just referred to as divers. You can break them up into roughly four categories:Skin divers - who hold their breath, and do not use scuba equipment. Also sometimes called free divers.Sport divers - who dive for fun (they used to be called 'recreational divers', but now this term is used to distinguish sport divers from 'technical divers' who also dive for fun, but dive outside of WRSTC 'recreational' limits).Commercial divers - who dive for their jobs. By convention, this excludes recreational diving instructors, to differentiate from commercial divers who use equipment underwater, engage in saturation diving and use of elaborate gas mixes.Military divers - who form a sub-set of the navy.Not all divers fit neatly into these categories (police divers, rescue divers, fisherman who dive for their catch), but those tend to be the broad categories used.

What gases are in a scuba tank?

The majority of gas used in most SCUBA tanks is compressed air. This air is composed of the same elements everywhere - 21% Oxygen 79% Nitrogen. Advanced SCUBA divers may use an "enhanced" mixture of 32% (up to about 40%) Oxygen with the balance being Nitrogen. The number of divers who use a mixture like this is about 2 to 5% of all certified divers. Less than 1% of all divers may use a special Tri-mix of some rather exotic gases to allow very deep dives - however, it takes years of instruction and training to use these exotic mixes.


What gas is most directly responsible for the bends or decompression sickness that divers may experience?
