Oxygen First Aid for Scuba Diving Injuries

As a recreational diver, you can receive training to provide vital first aid that can make a difference to a scuba diver with decompression illness. The DAN Oxygen Provider Course provides entry-level training in the recognition and management of possible diving-related injuries using emergency oxygen first aid.

 
Learning Objectives
Course participants must be familiar with the signs and symptoms of major diving injuries including near drowning and decompression illnesses (arterial gas embolism and decompression sickness).

Course participants must demonstrate proper deployment, assembly, disassembly, and use of all components of the DAN Oxygen Unit. This includes use of the demand inhalator valve / mask, constant flow (delivering oxygen at least 15 lpm), non-rebreather mask and oronasal resuscitation mask with supplemental oxygen inlet.

Course participants must complete the DAN Oxygen First Aid for Scuba Diving Injuries examination with a minimum passing score of 80 percent. The instructor will review the examination with each participant to ensure 100 percent understanding of the material.

 

Skill Performance Objectives
To successfully complete the DAN Oxygen Provider course, participants must demonstrate skill and confidence during deployment, assembly and disassembly of all parts of the DAN Oxygen Unit (or other acceptable units).

The course participant must demonstrate skill and confidence while providing emergency oxygen to simulated injured divers by:

  • Assessing the scene and oxygen provider safety
  • Deploying and operating the DAN Oxygen Unit
  • Selecting and preparing the appropriate oxygen mask

Operating the DAN Oxygen Unit and using these oxygen delivery devices:

  • Demand inhalator valve and mask
  • Constant-flow, non-rebreather mask
  • Oronasal resuscitation mask with supplemental oxygen inlet
