WORK OF BREATHING
Did you know that it costs energy to breathe? The amount of energy your regulator requires to move each liter of air is called work of breathing (WOB). Lower work of breathing equals lower effort required to breathe and increased comfort and safety during a dive.

How to Read Work of Breathing Charts 
The computer-generated breathing machine chart presented above represents a regulator's performance per standards established by the U.S. Navy's Experimental Diving Unit. Tests are conducted at 198 feet with approximately 3000-psi supply pressure, 25 breaths per minute of 2.5 liters each.

(1) Inhalation - The chart shows one complete breath cycle, starting with inhalation on the left and continuing along the bottom to the right, staying mostly below 0.0; thus the inhalation work of breathing is reported in negative numbers.

(2) Exhalation - The exhalation effort begins on the right and runs across the top to the left. These are all positive numbers since a diver (or the machine in this case) is blowing out (exhaling) rather than inhaling.

(3) WOB - The total area inside the loop formed by the two lines is what the computer analyzes to calculate the regulator's total work of breathing - the amount of energy the regulator requires to move each liter of air.

Miflex Xtreme Low Pressure Braided Regulator Hoses feature an external nylon safety braiding designed to resist the snags and abrasions that divers can often encounter. The patent Pending XTREME double braiding also resists UV rays out of the water, thus extending the lifespan of the hose.

Unlike traditional hoses, the XTREME nylon safety braiding is not simply pushed over the hose fittings. Instead the braiding is tightly bound and fixed to the hose core by stainless steel or brass sleeve.
