DAN Oxygen Provider

  • Emergency Oxygen being supplied

When a diving accident occurs, being able to recognize the problem and respond with the appropriate care can speed the diver's recovery and minimize lasting effects.

Oxygen first aid provides needed oxygen to body tissues, enhancing the elimination of gases such as nitrogen, and helps shrink any gas bubbles that may have developed during ascent. It is these bubbles that contribute to decompression sickness. Supplemental oxygen can also help minimize or eliminate existing symptoms and reduce further injury until medical services are engaged.

This course will teach you the techniques of emergency oxygen administration for suspected diving injuries and nonfatal drowning. You will learn the fundamentals of recognizing dive-injuries along with response and management.
