DAN or PADI Oxygen Provider

O2 Provider Certification

Scuba lessons allow hands on O2 training
We all hope for the best when we set out on our dive trip, but be prepared to assist a fellow diver should the need arise with the DAN or PADI Oxygen Provider.  Oxygen first aid provides needed oxygen to body tissues, enhances the elimination of inert gases such as nitrogen obtained from breathing gases, and helps shrink any gas bubbles that may have developed during ascent — bubbles that contribute to decompression sickness and arterial gas embolism. Supplemental oxygen also can help minimize or eliminate existing symptoms and reduce further injury until medical services are engaged.
