Best Answer

Divers use 21% Oxygen and 79% nitrogen while underwater. It results in the same exact air we breath on the surface.

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.
