DAN - Advanced O2 Provider

The DAN Advanced Oxygen First Aid for Scuba Diving Injuries Course is a Training Programme for those individuals who have successfully completed the DAN Oxygen First Aid for Scuba Diving Injuries course. It is designed to train DAN Oxygen Providers to use a positive pressure valve (as the MTV100) and/or a bag-valve-mask (BVM); depending on local legal laws and regulations.

The DAN Advanced Oxygen First Aid for Scuba Diving Injuries programme is designed to teach the skills and knowledge needed to supplement Basic Life Support and cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) skills with resuscitation techniques to assist anybody who is not breathing. The course is divided into two parts.

The use of the Manual Triggered Ventilator (MTV. also know as Resuscitation valve) and the use of the Bag Valve Mask. According to local laws and regulations, providers will be training in the use of the MTV only or in the use of both MTV and BVM, in the UK both uses are taught.

DAN and all major diving instructional agencies recommend that all divers be qualified to provide 100% oxygen in the field to those injured in a dive accident.

You will be trained in oxygen first aid procedures that should enable you to assist an injured or ill diver until medical aid is accessed. Topics include: basic anatomy & physiology, recognition & management of a dive accident, benefits of oxygen provision, hazards & precautions, oxygen equipment and the use of a DAN Oxygen Unit.
