These tables include PO2 levels for each depth and still include PO2 values up to 1.
However all depths where PO2 levels exceed 1. They are only included in the event a diver exceeds the planned maximum depth.
These dives exceed the maximum PO2 single exposure limit and should also be avoided. The partial pressure of oxygen at depth is the depth limiting factor for any nitrox mixture. A key facet in nitrox dive planning is to optimize the oxygen level by displacing as much nitrogen as possible while remaining within the oxygen exposure limits NOAA Diving Manual, 4th edition, pp. Contact us with page issues.
