Emergency Oxygen Provider
Health and Safety
The Emergency Oxygen Provider program represents entry level training designed to educate the general diving (and qualified non-diving) public in recognizing possible dive related injuries and providing emergency oxygen first aid while activating the local emergency medical services (EMS) and/or arranging for evacuation to the nearest available medical facility. In addition, the included follow-on course gives participants additional training in techniques for providing emergency oxygen to a non-breathing diver. Advanced resuscitation procedures will be discussed and practiced, including demonstration and use of Positive Pressure Ventilators and Bag Valve Masks. Finally, our training provides knowledge and skills required to extend the usable delivery volume of a limited O2 supply, as in an off-shore diving excursion or remote location.
