Emergency Oxygen Provider
Who Should Take This Course?
Knowing how and when to use emergency oxygen is a great skill to have and means you’re ready to help others should the need arise. Becoming an Emergency Oxygen Provider lets you breathe easy knowing that you can recognize scuba diving illnesses treatable with emergency oxygen, and are prepared to offer aid.
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.
What will you learn?
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.
What Gear Will I use?
Your Instructor will have emergency oxygen units available to use for training and Sea Dragon Charters can help you purchase your own unit for use after the class. You’ll also need to have a disposable non-rebreather mask to use during practice sessions.
