learn to dive like a pro scuba diver

Beware of pressure

At 1 ATM of pressure you will start to fill tingly, that means you go down 33ft of water. At 2 ATM of pressure you will start you will fill pressure in the mask, ears, and your sinuses will be messing up, you will be 66ft below water. At 15ft below water you are going to feel squeezeing and need to equalize.

important parts of Scuba diving

The 2 main parts of a regulator are first stage, and primary second stage. The 2 metals in scuba tanks are aluminum alloy, and stell alloy. The 3 main parts that will be most affected when decending is your mask, ears, and sinuses. You need a RNT( Residual Nitrogen Time ) it tracks you nitrogen avsorption.

Things you must know!!!!

A pony tank is only for emergencies!

A properly fitted diving mask is supposed to be tight!

A properly fitted wet suit is supposed to be tight!

Extra Information

Boyle's Law, will increase pressure as you decrease the volume of your gas.

Charles' Law, will increase volume as you decrease the temperature of your gas.

Bends are a decompression sickness also known as (DCS)

If you want to be a Drift Diver all you have to do is let the current of the ocean take you.

Emile Gagnan, Jacques Corsteau made the Aqua-lung and it helps you last longer underwater.

Bends, air embolisms, and oxygen toxicity

Decompression sickness (DCS; also known as divers' disease, the bends or caisson disease) describes a condition arising from dissolved gases coming out of solution into bubbles inside the body on depressurisation. An embolism in a medical context refers to any large moving mass or defect in the blood stream. An air embolism is an air bubble trapped in a blood vessel. When an air bubble travels along an artery, it moves through a system of blood vessels that gradually become narrower. Central nervous system (CNS) oxygen toxicity occurs when cells in a diver's central nervous system (primarily in the brain) are damaged or experience cell death. "This most commonly happens when a diver breathes partial pressures of oxygen greater than 1.6 ata, such as breathing EANx32 beyond 130 feet."
