SSS Oxygen Provider

DAN Kit (with second demand system)

Oxygen sustains life, in the event of an diving accident or emergency, prompt and efficient administration of 100% oxygen to a conscious or unconscious breathing diver will help to treat almost any scuba diving injury. In the rare event that 100% oxygen is not helpful in treating an injury, it will not have any negative effects. Given the difficulty of assessing injuries and illnesses at a dive site, pure oxygen should always be administered to an ailing diver until his injury can be diagnosed by medical professionals. For this reason, responsible dive operations carry an emergency oxygen kit with them to every dive site.

So why become an Oxygen Provider?

In many countries around the world, 100% Oxygen is classed as a prescriptive drug. Without training and certification as an Oxygen Provider, lawfully you are unable to handle or administer 100% Oxygen to people in need. More importantly, Oxygen needs to be handled correctly, you also need to learn the correct method of administering 100% O2 to conscious, unconscious and non breathing victims.
