Oxygen, fundamental to all life on this planet.

Oxygen, water and food are fundamentally important to all animals. Of these three basic essentials for the maintenance of life, the lack of oxygen leads to death most rapidly.

First Aid with emergency oxygen is useful or necessary as a treatment for many injuries, diseases and intoxications that interfere with oxygen reaching the blood and tissues.

For recreational scuba divers, emergency oxygen is the primary first aid given to individuals suffering from a near drowning or decompression illness (lung over expansion injuries and decompression sickness).

Providing emergency oxygen has become the standard practise for treating injured scuba divers since it provides oxygen to starved tissues and aids in bubble reduction.

Whether we are snorkelling or scuba diving, the PADI Emergency Oxygen Provider Course will prepare you for near drowning or decompression illness situations incase something like this was to occur.

In our cars we have a spare tyre, in case we were to have a puncture. With water related activities this course is similar to our spare tyre, it is there in case we need it (hopefully we don’t), if we do need it then we can provide real help which could make a real difference to someone who needs it.
