Automated External Defibrillators - AEDs for Scuba Diving More than 10 percent of all dive fatalities are actually caused by cardiovascular disease. This course teaches divers, boaters and other interested parties to provide care for sudden cardiac arrest, including the use of an automated external defibrillator (AEDs). * Students will be trained how to use, test and inspect multiple brands of AED. Students will also be offered the opportunity to purchase an AED at a discounted rate after completion of the class.
Oxygen First Aid for Scuba Diving Injuries This advanced-level program is designed to train students currently trained and certified in CPR AED and First Aid. Students will learn how to use the oxygen via mask, cannula and a bag valve mask while providing care for a non-breathing injured diver.
First Aid for Hazardous Marine Life Injuries Serious hazardous marine life injuries are rare, but most divers experience minor discomfort from unintentional encounters with fire coral, jellyfish or other marine creatures. This course teaches divers to minimize these injuries and reduce diver discomfort and pain.
On-Site Neurological Assessment for Divers Learn how to conduct a layman's neurological assessment on a potentially injured diver. The information gained in this assessment can help determine if a diver is in need of oxygen, first aid or emergency evacuation. This information is best shared with a dive physician or other emergency medical professional to determine the best course of treatment.
Advanced CPR AED & First Aid for Dive Professionals The remote nature of dive accidents, whether a few hours from shore or days from civilization, frequently requires more advanced levels of care than are offered by traditional or entry-level CPR programs.
This program provides information regarding topics such as decompression illness, barotraumas and equipment-related safety issues and includes skill development on taking a blood pressure and using an EpiPen in the event of a severe allergic reaction, gas toxicities, drowning, ear barotrauma and use of an otoscope, pulse oximteter and other EMS equipment.
Moving and Transporting Injured Divers The remote nature of dive accidents many times requires the movement of injured divers onto and off of the boat. Learn how to properly move injured divers without causing harm. Long backboards, C-Collars and proper use of a KED will be discussed.
