PADI Emergency Oxygen Provider
Knowing how and when to use emergency oxygen is a great skill to have. It means you're ready to help others should the need arise. Becoming a PADI Emergency Oxygen Provider lets you breathe easy knowing that you can recognise scuba diving illnesses treatable with emergency oxygen, and are prepared to offer aid.
What will I do?
During the Emergency Oxygen Provider course, you learn how to be the one ready to help a fellow diver should the need arise.
You'll learn about dive injuries, different types of emergency oxygen equipment and safety considerations when using oxygen.
Then you'll practice:
- Assembling and disassembling emergency oxygen equipment.
- Deploying a non-rebreather mask and a demand inhalator valve on a breathing diver.
- Using a pocket mask on a non-breathing diver.
The course will also teach you how to:
- Recognise diving illnesses treatable by emergency oxygen
- Properly set up equipment
- Administer emergency oxygen
What scuba gear will I use?
Scuba Leeds will have emergency oxygen units available to use for training. We can help you purchase your own unit for use after the class. You'll also need to have a disposable non-rebreather mask to use during practice sessions, which we can help provide.
What are the prerequisites for this course?
There are no prerequisites, age restrictions or water sessions required for this course. It's open to everyone, and only your enthusiasm and eagerness to learn is required!
Though suited for divers, this course doesn't include dives. This means it is equally applicable to those who are around divers such as boat crew, non-diving buddies, lifeguards, and shore staff.
The course comes with the paper manual to complete the theory prior to the classroom session.
Furthermore, you don't need any previous CPR or first aid training to take the course.
