  Scuba set - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Most modern open-circuit scuba sets have a diving regulator consisting of a first stage pressure reducing valve that is sealed over the diving cylinder's output valve, and the second stage "demand valve"; at the mouthpiece, with a thin pressure hose linking the two stages.
In modern scuba sets, a buoyancy compensator, such as a back-mounted wing or stabiliser jacket (otherwise known as a 'stab jacket'), is built into the scuba set harness.
A predecessor to scuba gear, the Momson lung, was used as emergency escape gear by WWII submariners.

In modern scuba sets, a buoyancy compensator, such as a wings or stabiliser jacket, is built into the scuba set harness, although strictly speaking it is not a part of the breathing apparatus.
Some scuba sets incorporate attached extra stage cylinders, as bailout in case the main breathing gas supply is used up or malfunctions, or containing another gas mixture.
Open circuit scuba may supply various breathing gases, but pure oxygen is used rarely, generally as a decompression gas in volumes in technical diving.

 Scuba Diving [encyclopedia]   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-22)
In short, scuba diving is an underwater activity practiced with the help of a system or an apparatus (usually a tank and air pressure regulator) able to provide a reserve of air in order to allow the diver to breathe air during the immersion.
The maximum safe depth for normal scuba gear with normal air in the tank is certainly within the 50 metres, beyond which nitrogen narcosis becomes an almost certain danger.
Scuba diving requires practice and a certain amount of experience before entering water without an instructor (or a professional assistant).
