    proportion of nitrogen by increasing the proportion of oxygen reduces the risk decompression sickness for the same dive profile. (see Appendix 2) Nitrox also allows for extended dive times without the need for decompression stops. (see Appendix 3) One of the more significant aspects of this application is the extended no-stop time when using the Nitrox mixtures. The exact values of the extended no-stop times vary on the decompression table used to derive the tables used for the no-stop times, varying on

New high performance unpressurized aircraft are allowing more pilots to fly in the 10,000-18,000ft altitude range. Most pilots have not received proper training in the physiological effects of flying at those altitudes or the advantages and disadvantages of different oxygen systems available. Recreational pilots are most at risk for having issues using oxygen systems due to the lack of structured

    Aviation Physiology Introduction Human beings can adjust to different environmental conditions (Wilson, 2016). In this case, the human body acclimates to external temperatures and variations in barometric pressure. Therefore, this homeostatic response is critical to adjust to unique environmental conditions, which differ from one habitat to the other. In addition, the reaction ensures that the body meets the ever-changing energy demands due to the variations in the amount of mental and physical activity
