The Lifeguard Services’ Emergency Oxygen Administration course is an advanced staff rescue skill providing a victim supplemental oxygen for breathing. The course shows how to administer emergency oxygen and perform rescue breathing. Supplemental oxygen provides more opportunity for success than rescue breathing alone and helps prevent cardiac arrest or brain damage in the victim.
Oxygen is considered a drug and it has strict rules for its employment. Emergency oxygen training provides your staff access to this important lifesaving tool. Staff members are instructed on how to deploy and administer oxygen and how to restrict use when an emergency defibrillator is employed. Additionally, staff members are instructed on the care, upkeep, and refilling the oxygen tanks available in your work area.
Staff members who successfully complete the training and text will have certification for two years.
