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.

Due to the ongoing risk of COVID 19, to ensure our safety and yours, we have changed things around a little here at Dive Wellington. 

Anyone partaking on a course, hiring dive gear, or going on a charter/trip MUST have a vaccination pass. 

Visitors to the store must sign in on entry. QR code on the door, or manual sign-in sheet in the center of the store.

Customers must wear a face-covering inside at all times, and keep a 2m distance between other customers and staff where possible.

If travelling for a course/dive club, we will have very limited transport in the Dive Wellington van, but we recommend taking your own private vehicle to the site.

Masks, snorkels and regulators will be soaked in disinfectant after each use to avoid transmission.

As always, if you are unwell or have cold/flu-like symptoms, please stay home and get tested. 

Please help keep everyone safe by following these regulations.
