Oxygen First Aid Training & Certification


Oxygen is the life giving gas, every cell in our bodies needs oxygen to survive and to develop.  Oxygen can help to relieve stress, repair cells and to aid healing.

Oxygen first-aid is used generally by EMS and also Fire Services and especialiy in the case of a diving accidents or suspected diving accident. Rapid deployment of oxygen can save tissue damage and even lives...

Benefits of Oxygen

 One of the most important benefits of oxygen is its ability to reach our cells quickly and help with stress relief and celluar repair, it is very effective in cases of smoke inhalation or in cases of Diving Injuries where DCS or DCI is suspected.  As the rapid treatment with 100% Oxygen under pressure can reduce the effects of Nitrogen in the bloodstream and in some cases even offer pain relief.
