The DAN Oxygen Provider Course(Nationally Recognised in Australia - RTO 4659)

As we all learnt on our Open Water Course, Oxygen First Aid is the definitive First Aid for DCI. DCI being Decompression Sickness and Lung Expansion Injuries. Probably when you are out on the dive boat you probably know where the Oxygen kit is? Correct? So the question is, do you know how to give Oxygen to an injured diver in a real emergency?

If not then The DAN Oxygen Provider course is a must!

In fact all scuba divers are strongly advised to undergo training in resuscitation and oxygen provision. Certainly the skills developed are extremely valuable for all divers. In contrast however, they are essential for all scuba diving Instructors and Divemasters. DAN launched the world’s most popular Oxygen First Aid for Scuba Divers course in 1991. Chris has actually been teaching it since February 1994. Furthermore it has been included in all our Indepth PADI Instructor Development Courses / IDCs since 2000.

In fact we would go as far as to say ANYONE responsible for the safety and well-being of scuba divers. MUST be trained in Oxygen Administration!

The DAN Oxygen Provider Course is suitable for scuba divers of all levels from beginner to Instructor.

First of all you read your DAN Oxygen Provider Student manual and answer the Knowledge Reviews. There is also an excellent DVD which we watch in class. You will then review some basic diving physiology and physics. And we will have a good look at the DAN Oxygen Delivery system. This consists of an Oxygen Cylinder, Oronasal mask, Pocket Mask and Non-Rebreather Mask. You will also learn how to assemble and disassemble the DAN Oxygen unit.

This is then followed by the hands-on Skills session. Now you will not only learn how to use each delivery system, but also in what situations you should actually use them.

For example:  What Flow Rate should a a Non-Rebreather Mask be set on? What are you going to do if the Reservoir Bag empties?

When you are happy with the basic DAN Oxygen Provider skills then we will run you through a variety of realistic situations. Here you will apply your knowledge and skills in a “real setting,” responding to the simulated injury scenarios as they develop!

All in all a great fun and invaluable course to take!

Now you know the basics about providing Oxygen in Emergency Diving situations

So what is next?

Although DAN Asia-Pacific believes that DAN-style units fulfill the needs of most dive professionals. Therefore DAN has also developed various Extension Modules to train people in the use of more Advanced Oxygen equipment. As a result these are excellent  for those who have a specific need or desire for such training.

Extension Modules include:

  • MTV-100
  • Bag-Valve-Mask
  • Closed Circuit Oxygen Resuscitator

Why no try the DAN / PADI Distinctive Specialty Courses Hazardous Marine Life Injuries (HMLI)? Or maybe Advanced Oxygen Administration?

If you are going onto your PADI Rescue or Divemaster Courses, or you have already taken them. Then you simply cannot go wrong learning more about O2 Administration and other diver related safety courses!
