New DAN Emergency Program

It is a rare event when a dive emergency is a single event. More often than not, separate small problems compound to create a larger problem. Divers and dive professionals interested in understanding first aid care for dive emergencies can now take the Diving Emergency Management Provider course from a DAN Instructor.

This single program integrates the knowledge and skills from several DAN Training Programs into a single eight-hour day.

The Diving Emergency Management Provider course includes

* Oxygen First Aid for Scuba Diving Injuries

* First Aid for Hazardous Marine Life Injuries

* Automated External Defibrillators (AEDs) for Scuba Diving

* Advanced Oxygen First Aid for Scuba Diving Injuries

The knowledge and skills from the DAN Advanced Oxygen First Aid for Scuba Diving Injuries module are optional in this program. After reviewing the skills and knowledge development portions of this program, the students then participate in an integrated scenario where they get the opportunity to bring together all of the skills they learned in each of the segments into a single scenario.

To participate in this program, students must be current cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) providers. For more information on this program, call DAN Training at 1-800-446-2671 or +1-919-684-2948 ext 555, or email oxygen@DiversAlertNetwork.org
