DAN Oxygen Provider (O2)


This course, Oxygen First Aid for Scuba Diving Injuries, represents entry-level training designed to
educate the general diving (and qualified non-diving) public to better recognize possible dive-related
injuries and to provide emergency oxygen first aid while activating the local emergency medical services
(EMS) and / or arranging for evacuation to the nearest available medical facility.

Course Objective

The course is designed to train and educate the general diving public in the techniques of using oxygen
as first aid for a suspected dive injury. In addition, this course will introduce novice divers to the
fundamentals of recognizing diving injury signs and symptoms, response and management.
This program also provides an excellent opportunity for experienced divers and instructors to
continue their education

The DAN Oxygen Provider course is not designed to train lay persons to provide oxygen to the general
public. While the medical standards and equipment are the same regarding the emergency use of oxygen
for both divers and non-divers, the DAN Oxygen Provider course does not prepare individuals to respond
to the ill or injured member of the general public by using emergency oxygen
