What is Nitrox?  
Nitrox is simply compressed air that contains a higher Oxygen content than normal scuba tanks.  While the air you breathe is about 21% Oxygen and 79% Nitrogen, Nitrox is about 36% Oxygen and 64% Nitrogen.
The decreased amount of Nitrogen in your bloodstream is what helps keep you from getting "The Bends" and the increased Oxygen helps you feel less tired at the end of your dive.
