DAN Oxygen First Aid for Scuba Diving Injuries

DAN Oxygen First Aid for Scuba Diving InjuriesDAN´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.

All divers are strongly advised to undergo training in resuscitation and oxygen provision. The skills developed are extremely valuable, not only in the diving environment, but in all walks of life. Launched in 1991, this DAN course is now the world’s most popular oxygen first aid program. Until DAN developed its oxygen training program and line of oxygen equipment, many injured divers did not benefit from the use of emergency oxygen.

DAN Oxygen First Aid for Scuba Diving InjuriesThis program is suitable for people of all levels, from novice to instructor. The course consists of one unit of competency: Provide Oxygen in Dive Accidents. This unit consists of two Elements of Competency:- Resuscitation and Oxygen Provider each with a nominal duration of 4 hours.

These elements can be undertaken separately (as is the case with the DAN Oxygen Provider Course in most countries), or can be combined into one program with a nominal duration of 8 hours by an appropriately qualified instructor.

Participants must be 14 years or older. In addition, participants must have completed the Resuscitation element, hold a current CPR certificate, or must have been assessed as “Competent” in CPR by the DAN Instructor.

DAN 02 First Aid TextbookMost injured divers are breathing and require supplemental oxygen. The Oxygen Provision in Dive Accidents component is designed to teach the skills needed to perform this task safely and effectively. Topics covered include diving accident recognition, the benefits of oxygen provision, precautions and safety procedures, and oxygen provision to both responsive and unresponsive victims. Participants are certified in the use of the DAN Oxygen Unit, or an equivalent system.

The Resuscitation component, when conducted, is designed to train participants in the management of the unresponsive victim and cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR).

The program has been carefully designed to conform to local resuscitation and oxygen administration protocols, and the certification is well recognised throughout the world through the International DAN Federation (IDAN).

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.
