DAN Dive ER Management Provider
Divers often ask why they should participate in the DEMP training if they are already Rescue divers or Divemasters. It is different than the Primary Care or a Rescue Diver course. The DEMP is the logical next step. It builds on people who already know how to give CPR, find a missing diver, and egress with an unconscious person. The DEMP teaches students how to deal with the diver in need aboard the boat or at shore. We practice administering O2 to conscious and unconscious, breathing and non-breathing victims. After mastering the use of the standard DAN Oxygen kit, we will brake out the bag valve and the AED unit to add to the fun.
A dive emergency is rarely a single event. More often than not, separate small problems compound to create a larger emergency.
Divers interested in understanding first aid care for dive emergencies can take the Diving Emergency Management Provider (DEMP) course from a DAN Instructor. This program integrates the knowledge and skills from several DAN training programs into a single course — at a significant time savings without sacrificing any skills.

WHAT THIS COURSE INCLUDES
The DAN Basic Life Support: CPR and First Aid (BLS: CPR&FA) Course
Offers entry-level training in providing basic life support to adults with life-threatening injuries while activating emergency medical services. Basic life support includes one-rescuer cardiopulmonary resuscitation, use of an automatic external defibrillator (AED) and additional skills such as controlling bleeding and caring for a choking person or a person in shock. The first aid portion of this program includes key skills such as conducting illness and injury assessments, bandaging, splinting and performing emergency moves.
The DAN Emergency Oxygen for Scuba Diving Injuries Course
Designed to train and educate interested individuals in the techniques of using oxygen as first aid for a suspected dive injury. In addition, this course will introduce the fundamentals of recognizing diving injury warning signs, response and management. This program also provides an excellent opportunity for experienced divers and instructors to continue their education.
The First Aid for Hazardous Marine Life Injuries Course
Designed to provide divers with knowledge regarding specific types of marine life injuries and the general first aid treatment for those injuries. This course introduces students to identification of potentially hazardous marine life as well as how to avoid injuries. Although serious hazardous marine life injuries are rare, most divers experience minor discomfort from unintentional encounters with fire coral, jellyfish and other marine creatures at some point in their dive careers. Learn how to recognize and minimize these injuries.
The 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 emergency medical services. Approximately two-thirds of divers with decompression illness experience damage to their nervous system. These signs are often vague and can go unrecognized by the diver, causing the symptoms to be dismissed as insignificant or not dive related and delaying treatment. Additionally, stroke is the leading cause of long-term disability. Recognizing signs and symptoms of a possible stroke and activating EMS can minimize lasting effects.
