Thinking of becoming a gas blender or just want to know more about gas blending? Then this book is for you.

This is an excellent book to add to your collection for any gas blender, Technical diver or person interested in technical diving. Whether you intend to blend gas or not.

I am already a gas blender, what value does this book have for me?
Even people that are already gas blenders will find great value from the tips and advice in this book, and quick fill charts. Alternatively, people studying to become a gas blender or for Nitrox gas blenders that want to go to Tri-Mix gas blenders, a new way of explaining things might just be what is needed to help you understand how gas blending works.

What does the book cover?
The book starts off with an explanation and look at the gasses you will use for deep diving and decompression such as:
* Enriched Air
* Tri-Mix
* Heliox
* Helair

Other subjects are also covered, such as:
* Nitrogen narcosis
* CO2 and CO poisoning
* ICDS.

Gas blending is then covered with examples from:
* Enriched air blending
* Tri-Mix blending
* Helair blending that includes topping off a mix
* Changing a blend
* Blending with impure helium (helium that has oxygen mixed in it)
* Formulas on working out the actual breathing mix in a rebreather loop at any depth at any PPO2
* Updated to include BAR, PSI, Meters, and Feet calculations as well as samples.
* What would be the appropriate mix to bailout to at any depth.

I have no interest in becoming a gas blender, what value does the book have for me?
As a diver, by understanding how a blend will change when it is topped off with air or another gas, can allow you to plan your diving better and reuse gasses for other dives instead of it being drained down and wasted. This can save you a lot of money, especially if you dive Tri-Mix.
