DAN Emergency Oxygen for Scuba Diving Injuries

DAN Emergency O2 Provider and Rescue DiverAs a diver, you know the benefits of providing oxygen to an injured diver. You might even know you do not need to be injured to benefit from it (sidebar: who wants to invest in my thousand dollar idea, oxygen dive bar). Often when we SCUBA, we rely on the professional dive staff to handle emergencies and administer first aid and oxygen. A responsible diver, however, takes it upon him or herself to be educated and trained to respond in an emergency. Taking the DAN Emergency Oxygen for Scuba Diving Injuries course is another step in being that diver.
