Enriched Air Nitrox. A N2/O2 (nitrogen/oxygen) breathing gas containing more oxygen (typically 32 or 36 percent) and less nitrogen than plain air. Used by recreational divers to increase either bottom time or safety margin by decreasing the amount of nitrogen absorbed. Requires predive testing of gas mixture and adherence to strict depth restrictions.
