PADI ReActivate/Scuba Review

Emergency Oxygen Provider only $99.

For recreational scuba divers, emergency oxygen is the primary first aid given to individuals suffering from a near drowning, decompression sickness or lung overexpansion injuries.  Having emergency oxygen immediately available at dive sites, first responders must know how to provide oxygen in an emergency. 



 
Knowing how and when to use emergency oxygen is a great skill to have and means you’re ready to help others should the need arise. Becoming a PADI Emergency Oxygen Provider lets you breathe easy knowing that you can recognize scuba diving illnesses treatable with emergency oxygen, and are prepared to offer aid.

There are no prerequisites, age restrictions or water sessions required for this course – it’s open to everyone. Scuba divers, snorkelers and anyone who is around divers – boat crew, lifeguards, etc. – will benefit from having this training.
