Emergency Oxygen Provider Course
Costs: $75 Tuition + $30 Student kit
Oxygen is one of the most important aspects of first aid for decompression sickness, lung overexpansion injuries, and also for many non diving issues such as strokes. However, statistics say that less than 50% of injured divers actually are administered Oxygen, and those that

administer 100% Oxygen to an injured diver so that those dismal statistics will start to improve. PADI introduced this class
in 2008, and they produced fantastic training materials for it including the quick refresher card. We will cover the specific
- Assembly, safe use, and care of
- How to administer
Oxygen using demand valve and mask, constant-flow/non-rebreather masks, and pocket mask with an Oxygen inlet
