Be able to recognize scuba diving illnesses treatable with emergency oxygen, and be prepared to offer aid.
You’ll learn about dive injuries, different types of emergency oxygen equipment and safety considerations when using oxygen. Then you’ll practice:
– Assembling and disassembling emergency oxygen equipment.
– Deploying a non-rebreather mask and a demand inhalator valve on a breathing diver.
– Using a pocket mask on a nonbreathing diver.
There are no prerequisites, age restrictions or water sessions required for this course – it’s open to everyone. Scuba divers, snorkelers and anyone who is around divers – boat crew, lifeguards, etc. – will benefit from having this training.
Emergency oxygen units are availables to use for training.
You’ll also need to have a disposable non-rebreather mask to use during practice sessions, which we can help you to provide.
