DAN Use of Automated External Defibrillators

DAN Automated External Defibrillators for Scuba DivingDAN Automated External Defibrillators for Scuba DivingHeart attack is a very common cause of death. A severe heart attack often results in cardiac arrest. In this case, the heart usually beats very erratically and cannot generate circulation of blood to the body. If a normal heartbeat is not restored within a few minutes, the victim will die.

Automated external defibrillators (AEDs) are designed to diagnose cardiac arrest and, when appropriate, to deliver an electric shock to try to restore a normal heart rhythm. They can be used by people with minimal training.

Automated external defibrillator AEDDAN Asia-Pacific has developed this 4-hour program to train laypersons in the use of AEDs. This is not just an orientation but a thorough and responsible certification program.

It represents entry-level training designed to educate the general diving (and qualified non-diving) public to better recognize the warning signs of Sudden Cardiac Arrest and administer first aid using Basic Life Support techniques and Automated External Defibrillators while activating the local emergency medical services, (EMS) and / or arranging for evacuation to the nearest appropriate medical facility.

The pre-requisite is a CPR certification. If this is required, it can also be done as an additional module prior to the AED course

Fatality Statistics

Heart disease is a common problem. To ignore that it affects divers as much as it affects the general population does divers a disservice. When you consider that diving is often done from remote locations - on beaches or off of dive boats - that are far removed from emergency medical help, it is important to prepare for every emergency.
