Emergency O2 Provider
The PADI Emergency O2 Provider Course is designed to educate the general diving (and qualified non diving) public to recognize possible dive-related injuries and provide emergency oxygen first aid while activating the local emergency medical services (EMS) and/or arranging for evacuation to the nearest available medical facility.
Any time a pressure related dive accident or near-drowning is suspected, 100% oxygen should be given following the primary assesment. In this course you will learn how to properly provide emergency oxygen first aid.
What You Learn:
- Recognize diving illnesses treatable by emergency oxygen

Course Materials Required:
- PADI Emergency O2 Provider Pack – $39.95

Though suited for divers, this course has no prerequisites and doesn’t include dives, which means it is equally applicable to those who are around divers – boat crew, non-diving buddies, lifeguards, and shore staff. You don’t need any previous CPR or first aid training to take the course.
