What is technical diving?
Technical diving or tech diving is a form of scuba diving that exceeds the scope of recreational diving. Technical diving picks up where sport diving generally ends at nitrox (a breathing gas with oxygen levels greater than 21 percent). Decompression diving, using rich nitrox mixtures for decompression or the use of Trimix or Rebreathers are all likely to be classified as technical diving. Technical divers require advanced training, extensive experience, specialized Equipment.
Will technical diving allow me to go deeper?
Yes. This what TDI stands for. The following steps are:
What is my first step into technical diving?
Answer: Nitrox is the first and popular step, but in case of not having any experience of technical diving, TDI Introduction to Technical Diving gives an overview of all aspects of technical diving. Twinset Familiarization is suitable for experienced divers who are used to a single cylinder. TDI Advanced Nitrox and Decompression Procedures course is suitable for those who have been diving with a twinset.
What is Nitrox ?
Nitrox is the name given to oxygen and nitrogen mix where the Fraction of oxygen is higher than normal (21%) content of air.
To reduce the nitrogen content for longer dive in shallower water. It’s also for technical divers to optimize decompression dive by increasing the extraction process of dissolved inert gases in the divers body.
What is Trimix?
Trimix is a breathing gas where nitrogen and oxygen has been replaced by helium in order to reduce the effects of high partial pressure of both.
Diving with Trimix requires special procedures thorough understanding of the physics and physiology.
Tips for Technical Divers:
- Know your dive computer! You should be familiar with your computer, some have deco models so conservative and some not.
- Slow ascents are a decompression technique.
- Monitor ascent rate, your ascent is part of your total decompression profile.
- Too fast is not good to slow will increase nitrogen gas loading during the deeper part.
- Control your buoyancy, stay in control by dumping excess air during the ascent dive with one extra weight to counteract the positive buoyancy of an empty tank
- Stay static.
- Keep it simple, plan your dive.
- Be comfortable under water by practicing the ability to maintain depth, manage your Gauges.
- Never cut a decompression stop.
- Assume the position tray to maintain a horizontal position during the stop.
- Decompression stop should be a period of relaxation, mild exercise or not is bitter.
- As a decompression diver on long hangs even warmer tropical water can edge you toward hypothermia, you will often need to be dressed more warmer as decompression diver
- Risk extra gear results increased risk of over exertion to swimming resistance.
- Stage, decompression Diving requires training and experience, only way to truly learn properly execute stage decompression dives.
- Is it seak out quality training program from an experienced knowledge able instructor!
