EMERGENCY OXYGEN

The air a person normally breathes contains approximately 21 percent oxygen. The concentration of oxygen delivered to a victim through rescue breathing is 16 percent.  A condition known as hypoxia (insufficient oxygen to the body) can occur if a person goes without adequate oxygen for an extended period.

 

Controlled Response Services Emergency Oxygen Administration course is ideal for lay and professional rescuers and teaches how to administer oxygen during an emergency. The program can be taught as a stand-alone course or as a supplement to basic and BLS for Healthcare Provider training.

 

The administration of oxygen during an emergency may prevent damage to vital organs. A student will learn:

 

  • When to use emergency oxygen and how it may help

  • Set up and delivery with various delivery devices

  • How to use oxygen during bag-mask ventilation

  • The risks associated with use and storage of oxygen

  • Safe storage and handling of oxygen

  • How to use oxygen with advanced equipment
