PADI Oxygen Provider Course
Administering oxygen is among the most critical aspects of providing first aid for decompression sickness and lung-overpressure injuries.
Yet the proper and safe administration of O2 is a skill that goes far beyond what is covered in Rescue Diver training. It is why PADI also offers more comprehensive Oxygen Provider training.
This is an excellent course to take in conjunction with Emergency First Response and Rescue Diver.
Who can learn?
The only requirement is that you be certified to the PADI Open Water Diver level (or equivalent).
What is Involved? In this course, you will learn to:
- Correctly identify, assemble, disassemble and care for the components of the DAN O2 and similar kits.
- Administer oxygen using the demand inhalator valve and mask, constant-flow/non-rebreather mask and pocket mask with oxygen inlet.
- Activate EMS and help arrange transport to the most appropriate local facility.
Where Do You Learn?
All training activities take place at Scuba Lessons Jax. There is no pool work nor open-water training dives.
