Oxygen is vital for all living creatures on the planet. Without this gas humans can die quickly.
First aid with emergency oxygen is useful or necessary as a treatment for many injuries, diseases and intoxications that interfere with oxygen reaching the blood or tissues. For recreational scuba divers, emergency oxygen is the pri- mary first aid given to individuals suffering from a near drowning or decompres- sion illness (lung overexpansion injuries and decompression sickness).
The objective of this course is to train all divers (from PADI Junior Open Water Divers and above) also all those in a position to help divers (boat captains, lifeguards, etc.) in the proper use of emergency oxygen. This entry-level emergency oxygen course also teaches the recognition of diving illnesses treatable by emergency oxygen.
