PADI Tec Trimix 65 Course

Technical Diving : The PADI Tec Trimix 65 course.

The PADI tec 65 course Going beyond 50 or 55 meters on air is dangerous due to the effect of the nitrogen narcosis, so to go deeper you need to use a mix of gas containing a proportion of a lighter inert gas (helium) to replace the nitrogen and its effect at deeper depth (like the narcosis).
This blended mix is called trimix (a mixture of 3 gases composed of O2 - He2 - N2 = Oxygen - Helium - Nitrogen).
The Tec 65 "normoxic" course is the first step to dive deeper but safer.
The "normoxic" annotation, historically, was because the gas is breathable at the surface (down to 16% of oxygen content). Nowadays (and depending the diving agency certification) the "normoxic" notation means "normal amount of oxygen", which is between 21%, like on the surface, down to 18% O2 max (breathable on the surface and giving a reasonable PPO2 of 1.4 at 67 meters).
During your Tec65 course you will go to a maximum depth of 65 meters (210 feet).
