What is the first thing to know

Technodiving presupposes immersion to a depth of more than 40 meters, when in order to decrease the amount of nitrogen in the body it is required to use various gas mixtures. Some amateurs consider technical diving to be any sort of diving that is deeper than 40 meters. But this is not true, despite the fact that you once had a tour on such a depth. There are a number of differences of this and that type of diving.

If we want to discuss the notion "technical diving", it was first used by Dr. Bill Hamilton. He was a physiologist. More than 35 years he dedicated to the study of the problems of breathing nitrogen and oxygen mixtures at the time of decompression. He pointed out that it is possible to call technical any sort of diving with a switch from one breathing gas to another and warned that doing so one can feel the effect very close to narcotic. Every person will feel it and will react differently. Amateur diving allows one to surface immediately with a emergency need. In technical diving it is forbidden, as surfacing out of caves is characterized with tons of difficulties and dangers.

One of the main conditions is presence of a duplicate equipment and special tools that help get rid of the problems that may present themselves under water fast .

A torch, a reel, supply of decompression and bottom gases, depth finder and underwater computer - are obligatory tools. Each kind of technical diving requires specific equipment and sticking to the methodical instructions.

In the process of diving lesson, which regularly takes around a few hours you will learn everything about the determination of the contents of the breathing mixtures, will understand the peculiarities of planning the decompression stops, will learn to correctly handle the additional equipment. Whereas getting ready of a n amateur dive regularly takes a few minutes.
