BASIC LIFE SUPPORT: FIRST AID AND CPR

Why Take This Course:
The American Heart Association states that cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) provided by a bystander immediately after sudden cardiac arrest can double or triple a victim's chance of survival. Brain death starts to occur four to six minutes after someone experiences cardiac arrest if no CPR and defibrillation occurs during that time. This course will help prepare you to handle cardiovascular events and other life-threatening incidents. Meets ILCOR/AHA 2010 Guidelines.

What You Will LearnYou will learn how to perform CPR, use an automated external defibrillator (AED) and become familiar with the signs and symptoms associated with heart attacks and respiratory arrest. Managing shock and controlling external bleeding are other skills covered that can help save lives.

You will learn about:

  • Primary & Secondary Assessments
  • Signs & symptoms of common medical emergencies
  • Stroke Assessment
  • You will develop the following skills:
  • Initial and secondary assessments
  • Recovery position technique
  • CPR techniques
  • Automated external defibrillator (AED) use
  • Obstructed airway management
  • Control of external bleeding
  • Bandaging, wound management and splinting
  • Shock management



ON SITE NEUROLOGICAL ASSESSMENT

Why Take This Course:
Stroke is the third-leading cause of death and the leading cause of long-term disability according to the American Heart Association. Decompression illness (DCI) can present as a neurological injury associated with scuba diving. Rapid recognition of and response to a suspected neurological injury, regardless of cause, can help convince
the injured person of the need for emergency oxygen and help the responder monitor the injured person's condition and report findings to emergency medical services (EMS).

What You Will LearnThe DAN Neurological Assessment course focuses on how to obtain
essential information about an individual involved in a dive emergency or
suspected of having a stroke and what information to relay to EMS.

You will learn about:

  • Nervous system overview
  • Stroke
  • Decompression illness
  • Neurological assessments
  • You will develop the following skills:
  • Making a F-A-S-T assessment
  • Taking a history
  • Monitoring vital signs
  • Assessing cranial nerve function
  • Determining mental function
  • Evaluating motor function
  • Assessing coordination and balance



EMERGENCY OXYGEN FOR SCUBA DIVING INJURIES

Why Take This Course:
When a diving accident occurs, being able to recognize the problem and respond with the appropriate care can speed the diver's recovery and minimize lasting effects. Oxygen first aid provides needed oxygen to body tissues, enhances the elimination of inert gases such as nitrogen obtained from breathing gases, and helps shrink any gas bubbles that may have developed during ascent — bubbles that contribute to decompression sickness and arterial gas embolism. Supplemental oxygen also can help minimize or eliminate existing symptoms and reduce further injury until medical services are engaged.

What You Will LearnThis course will teach you the techniques of emergency oxygen administration for suspected diving injuries and nonfatal drowning. You will learn the fundamentals of recognizing dive-injuries along with response and management.

You will learn about:

  • Atmospheric gases
  • Respiration and circulation
  • Decompression illness
  • Oxygen and diving injuries
  • Oxygen safety
  • You will develop the following skills:
  • Oxygen equipment identification, assembly and disassembly
  • Scene safety assessment
  • Initial assessment
  • Use of Demand inhalator valve, Nonrebreather mask,
  • Use of Bag-valve mask, Manually triggered ventilator
  • Creation of an Emergency assistance plan.



HAZARDOUS MARINE LIFE INJURIES

Why Take This Course:
Divers may experience unintentional encounters with fire coral, jellyfish and other marine creatures. Any time a person enters the marine environment there is a chance of being stung, bitten or cut. This course will teach you where you can expect to encounter potentially hazardous marine life and how to provide first aid when injuries occur. The more you know about the marine environment, the greater your chances of having safe, memorable dives.

What You Will LearnThis DAN First Aid for Hazardous Marine Life Injuries course teaches
divers how to identify and avoid potentially harmful marine life. It also
provides first aid skills to minimize these injuries and reduce discomfort.

You will learn about:


Vertebrate and invertebrate sources of envenomations
Traumatic injuries
Life-threatening complications
Seafood poisonings
Avoidance of marine life injuries
You will develop the following skills:
Initial assessment
Shock management
Treatment of stinging and spiny envenomations and injuries
Control of external bleeding
Pressure immobilization technique
Severe allergic reactions
Creation of an emergency assistance plan
