The NAUI Oxygen First Aid for Scuba Diving Injuries course represents entry-level training designed to educate divers and interested nondivers (such as a charter boat captain) to recognize scuba diving injuries and to provide emergency oxygen first aid. Emergency oxygen should be provided for the injured diver while activating the local emergency medical system or other similar local procedure and arranging for transportation to the nearest available medical facility.
In addition, this course will introduce novice divers to the fundamentals of dive accident recognition, response, and management. This program provides an excellent training opportunity for divers and continuing education for leadership-level divers and instructors.
