Be the one ready to help a fellow diver, should the need arise, by becoming a PADI Emergency Oxygen Provider. Knowing how and when to use emergency oxygen is a great skill to have and means you’re ready to help others. First Aid in diving emergencies can be greatly assisted by providing Emergency Oxygen. Whilst this is not a challenging course, learning the correct procedures for handling 100% oxygen is crucial.
Though suited for divers, this course has no prerequisites and doesn’t include dives, which means it is equally applicable to those who are around divers – boat crew, non-diving buddies, lifeguards, and shore staff. You don’t need any previous CPR or first aid training to take the course.
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 non-breathing diver.
Being a non diving course, a pocket mask is the only required piece of equipment.
