DAN Emergency Oxygen Provider
Less than 33% of injured divers receive emergency Oxygen in the field and most of those don’t receive 100% oxygen. All training agencies recommend that divers are trained on giving emergency O2. This course could really save a life!
The emergency oxygen provider course represents an entry level qualification in the identification and treatment of diving related injuries. Early use of oxygen while waiting for evacuation to a medical facility is nearly always beneficial in diving related injuries.
The course will teach divers to identify scuba related injuries such as near drowning and decompression illness (air embolism and decompression sickness).
Students must demonstrate proper assembly, dis-assembly and deployment of the oxygen unit. This includes use of the demand inhalator valve/mask, constant flow (15ml/m oxygen), non-re breather mask and oronasal resuscitation mask with supplemental oxygen inlet.
Students will also be taught the risks involved in handling 100% oxygen.
