Oregon Scuba Club is hosting a FREE Gas Management Seminar
Peter Rothschild PADI MSDT/Tec Instructor has very graciously agreed to present a seminar on Gas Management for those of us living in the Portland Metro Area.
This is how Peter describes his class
When you first learn to dive in the Open Water Class, every student is told to "Plan your dive and Dive your plan." While time is spent making sure that every diver understands the concept of "No Decompression Limits" and how "NDLs" limit the amount of time you can safely spend underwater, often little is taught about planning for how much air you actually need for the dive. This is the topic of Air Supply Management which is often referred to as Gas Management.
In order to “Plan Your Dive” with regards to your air consumption, you need to know several things:
1. How much air you breathe when you dive;
2. How deep you will be diving;
3. How much air you start with; and
4. How long you plan to stay down.
