Emergency Oxygen for Scuba Diving Injuries (EO2)
Scuba diving injuries are rare, and symptoms are often subtle, but recognizing problems and initiating appropriate action can speed an injured diver’s recovery and minimize lasting effects. Oxygen first aid is one of the initial responses for diving injuries.


DAN's EO2 course provides training to educate the general diving (and interested non-diving) public to better recognize possible dive-related injuries and to provide emergency oxygen first aid while activating the local emergency medical services (EMS) and/or arranging evacuation to the nearest available medical facility. Providers learn to use the demand inhalator valve and nonrebreather mask as well the manually triggered ventilator (MTV) and/or bag valve mask.
