Becoming a PADI Emergency Oxygen Provider lets you breathe easy knowing that you can recognize scuba diving illnesses treatable with emergency oxygen.
During your entry-level diving certification, you learned about some of the risks associated with scuba diving. Standard diving first aid often involves providing emergency oxygen to an injured diver but it is also highly beneficial for near-drowning incidents. Do you want to be ready to help a fellow diver if the need should arise?
Gaining the knowledge and skills to understand when and how to use emergency oxygen is important and from our point of view absolutely necessary for anyone involved with diving.
Taking the PADI Emergency Oxygen Provider Specialty Course will enable you to recognize scuba diving illnesses treatable with emergency oxygen, and prepare you to offer assistance.
Though suited primarily for divers, this course has no prerequisites, age restrictions or doesn’t include dives. It is applicable to everyone. Divers, snorkelers and anyone who is around divers such as boat crew, lifeguards, can benefit from having this training.
You will learn about dive injuries, different types of emergency oxygen equipment and safety considerations when using oxygen.
Your instructor will also teach you:
How to assemble and disassemble emergency oxygen equipment.
Understanding anatomy and physiology.
Oxygen first aid for diving emergencies.
Oxygen and its hazards.
