3 When we breathe, we are absorbing the gas (Air) into our bodies through our lungs and into our bloodstream and to our tissues… Of the Oxygen (gas) we breathe (around 20.9%) is absorbed But only 4-5% is used by our bodies the rest is expired when we breathe out… ITDA Group International Inc.

4 Every Cell in the Body NEEDS OXYGEN to survive… But in the Air we breathe there is another gas… (N 2) Nitrogen and this gas is NOT used by our bodies and is referred to as Inert… ITDA Group International Inc. Ltd. Copyright ©2011 All Rights Reserved. 4

5 All Diving has risks and understanding these risks can help you to better manage them… The First and MOST Important thing to understand is that when we descend in a Water Column…. ITDA Group International Inc. Ltd. Copyright ©2011 All Rights Reserved. 5

6 We are under Pressure ITDA Group International Inc. Ltd. Copyright ©2011 All Rights Reserved. 6

7 We are on gassing… This simply means we are absorbing the gas in our breathing mix at a rate proportional to the surrounding pressure.. Why is this important? ITDA Group International Inc. Ltd. Copyright ©2011 All Rights Reserved. 7

8 This is important because the amount of gas that is dissolved into your blood and tissues… Will determine your safe rate of ascent back to the surface… AVOIDING INJURY…. ITDA Group International Inc. Ltd. Copyright ©2011 All Rights Reserved. 8

9 As when we ascend again (as we must!) Our bodies release the excess absorbed gas at a rate proportional to our ascent (Drop in Pressure) This process of ascent is the action of “DECOMPRESSION” and it is the most important thing to fully understand… ITDA Group International Inc. Ltd. Copyright ©2011 All Rights Reserved. 9

10 On ascent the amount of gas that remains in your body… Needs to expand slowly and be released. This process is called Off-Gassing ITDA Group International Inc. Ltd. Copyright ©2011 All Rights Reserved. 10
