PADI O2 PROVIDER INSTRUCTOR COURSE
Oxygen, water, and food are fundamentally important to all animals. Of these three basic essentials for the maintenance of life, the lack of oxygen leads to death most rapidly. First aid with emergency oxygen is useful or necessary as a treatment for many injuries, diseases and intoxications that interfere with oxygen reaching the blood or tissues.
For recreational scuba divers, emergency oxygen is the primary first aid given to individuals suffering from a near drowning or decompression illness (lung overexpansion injuries and decompression sickness).
Providing emergency oxygen has become the standard of practice for treating injured scuba divers since it provides oxygen to starved tissues and aids in bubble reduction. Having emergency oxygen immediately available at dive locations is especially important to divers suffering from these maladies. Along with the availability of oxygen at dive sites, first responders must know how to provide oxygen in an emergency.
It is the goal of this training to bring to instructors the proper use of emergency oxygen, how to calculate the minimum O2 you should have on the boat, how to use the different masks…..
