Scuba diving inquiries are rare and are often subtle when they occur. In the unlikely event of an injury, being able to recognize the problem and initiate appropriate action can speed the diver’s recovery and minimize lasting effects. Oxygen first aid is the first response for diving injuries.

The DAN Emergency Oxygen for Scuba Diving Injuries course is an entry level training program that teaches participants common presentations of dive injuries and how to provide emergency oxygen first aid.

During this course, participants will become familiar with the signs and symptoms associated with decompression illness and nonfatal drowning and the proper administration of supplemental oxygen. Proper assembly, disassembly and use of all component parts found in the DAN Oxygen Unit are included in the skills section of this course.

The DAN Emergency Oxygen for Scuba Diving Injuries student handbook introduces medical terms that may be unfamiliar to some readers. Familiarity with basic medical terminology will enhance the quality of communication with emergency and health-care workers. A glossary of terms is provided in the back of this handbook.

Successful completion of the DAN Emergency Oxygen for Scuba Diving Injuries course includes demonstration of skill competency and passing a written knowledge assessment. The result is certification as a DAN Oxygen Provider.
