PADI Emergency Oxygen Provider course

PADI Emergency Oxygen Provider course

Today was for our Divemaster Trainee Goran to complete his PADI Emergency Oxygen Provider course, which was part of the Divemaster package that he chose.

As usual the course was held in the local Hyperbaric chamber in Bang Rak.

What I really like about this course is the fact that it gives you dive related knowledge for dive emergency situations and how to use the right flow rate with the right Oxygen providing mask.

The course is very hands on and part of the practical part is setting up a working Oxygen station. Here are all parts shown that you need for the course; an oxygen tank, a regulator, a pocket mask, a non-rebreather mask and a mannequin, shown on the picture below.

Goran is practicing how to use the various masks on Annie in different circumstances.

After the course was completed, Goran had a look around at the chamber and received a small, introductionary tour of the chamber and how it works.
