DAN Oxygen First Aid for Scuba Diving Injuries with Patriot Dive Center

Ever wonder what to do with that big green suitcase? How would you help your buddy if they needed oxygen? As a recreational diver, you can receive training to provide vital first aid that can make a difference to a scuba diver with decompression illness. The DAN Oxygen Provider Course provides entry-level training in the recognition and management of possible diving-related injuries using emergency oxygen first aid. This is the basic DAN O2 course that everyone talks about.


The Fun Part

Breathe easy—knowing that you know how to recognize illnesses treatable by emergency oxygen. Being the best buddy you can be means being prepared – especially in a time of need.

What You Learn

In one 4 hour classroom session you will learn how to:

  • Recognize diving illnesses treatable by emergency oxygen
  • Properly setup equipment 
  • Administer emergency oxygen

The Gear You Use

We will cover how to prepare, set up and use emergency oxygen kits to treat diving related illnesses. 

The Learning Materials

Student materials include:

  • Slates
  • Non-rebreather mask and pocket mask in a clamshell case

For all your learning materials and equipment, contact Patriot Dive Center.


Though suited for divers, this course 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 will need previous CPR training to take the course.

Your Next Adventure

This class will prepare you to handle emergencies requiring Oxygen treatment. To better prepare for other emergencies be sure to check out the other DAN courses that we offer to include DAN DEMP to better round out your emergency skills.
