DAN Oxygen First Aid
DAN Oxygen First Aid for Scuba Diving Injuries course is designed to train and educate scuba diver 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 warning signs, response and management. The 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.
DAN Advanced Oxygen First Aid
This advanced-level program is designed to train existing DAN Oxygen Providers to use the MTV-100 or a BVM (Bag Valve Mask) while providing care for a non-breathing injured diver.
