Basic Life Support for Dive Professionals

Called Basic Life Support for Dive Professionals (BLSPRO), this program is ideal for dive professionals and divers interested in understanding professional-level resuscitation techniques. This program is designed to be applicable to the diving market, including scenes and scenarios from dive situations, as well as the non-diving/healthcare market.

 

Coupled with DANís existing Training Programs and the new Advanced Oxygen First Aid program, DAN Instructors and Instructor Trainers will now be able to offer a complete diving emergency program.

This program also addresses basic life support skills for adults, children and infants.

Skills learned in this program that set it apart from lay-provider level CPR courses include:

  • two-person CPR;
  • ventilation using a bag valve mask;
  • finger sweep;
  • suctioning;
  • cricoid pressure; and
  • the technique for caring for an unconscious choking victim.

This is an 8-hour program, although it is skills dependent program, not time dependent. It is video driven. The instructor shows short video segments, demonstrates the skills in real-time, does a second skill demonstration breaking down key steps as appropriate and then conducts student practice.

  • Initial assessment
