DAN - Oxygen First Aid for Scuba Diving Injuries - DAN's Oxygen First Aid for Scuba Diving Injuries Provider Course was designed to fill the void in oxygen first aid training available for the general diving public.
This course represents entry level training designed to educate the general diving (and qualified non-diving) public in recognizing possible dive related injuries and providing emergency oxygen first aid while activating the local emergency medical services (EMS) and/or arranging for evacuation to the nearest available medical facility.
In DAN's most recent dive accident record, less than 33% of injured divers received emergency oxygen in the field. Few of those received oxygen concentrations approaching the recommended 100%. DAN and all major diving instructional agencies recommend that all divers be qualified to provide 100% oxygen in the field to those injured in a dive accident.
DAN - Advanced Oxygen First Aid for Scuba Diving Injuries - This module, Advanced Oxygen First Aid for Scuba Diving Injuries, is an advanced-level program that provides additional training for those individuals who have successfully completed the DAN Oxygen First Aid for Scuba Diving Injuries course within the past year (12 months). It is designed to train DAN Oxygen Providers to use the MTV-100 or a Bag Valve Mask (BVM) while providing care for a non-breathing injured diver and activating the local emergency medical services (EMS) and / or arranging for evacuation to the nearest available medical facility.
* Rescue breathing with supplemental oxygen delivers upwards of 50 percent inspired oxygen when performed correctly. However, using an MTV-100 or Bag Valve Mask with oxygen can deliver nearly 100 percent inspired oxygen to a non-breathing injured diver.
* When supplemental oxygen is not available, a Bag Valve Mask can deliver 21 percent oxygen as compared to 16 percent with rescue breathing without supplemental oxygen. The MTV-100 does not work without an oxygen supply.
This is not a stand-alone program. It is intended to train current DAN Oxygen Providers to administer oxygen using advanced-level skills.
