Emergency Oxygen Provider Specialty

Oxygen is an amazing gas to have access to in an emergency. In almost all circumstances it’s beneficial, and access to it as a diver is important as it is known to help with scuba diving problems such as decompression illness (DCI). In common emergency first aid and secondary care scenarios breathing O2 can benefit the patient immensely. As an Emergency Oxygen Provider you will be able to recognise various problems and treat them appropriately, should the need arise.

You will learn how providing O2 helps in various scenarios along with different types of delivery systems and how to use them effectively.
