It's internationally accepted that Oxygen is considered the number one first aid measure for dive incidents and an oxygen unit with proper training is a necessity for every professional or organisation associated with the aquatics industry.

The goal of WaterMaarq is to ensure snorkellers, freedivers and divers at every level and sites and organisations associated with maritime activities and water and contact sports are trained and prepared to use oxygen to assist an injured person in need.

It is not only useful for active dive enthusiasts in need due to an accident, but it is also useful or necessary as a treatment for many non-diving related injuries, diseases and intoxications that interfere with normal oxygenation of the blood or tissues. Providing emergency oxygen to an injured or ill person may reduce possible tissue damage due to lack of oxygen and increase the patient's chance of survival, which can affect every day people in the community.

Be ready when the need arises!

Benefits of the Oxygen Provider Course

Some instances of relevant life-threatening problems where emergency oxygen can make a positive difference include:

  • Traumatic injury leading to excessive blood loss or airway/breathing interference
  • Shock - any injury or illness, serious or minor, that stresses the body may result in shock
  • Cardiac arrest
  • Respiratory arrest
  • Stroke
  • Drowning
  • Decompression illness (DCI)
It's for this reason that oxygen equipment is an important safety tool and one that can be easily used by people with no medical training. Not only can dive operators and businesses, charter boat vessels, coast guard operators, ferry operators, life saving crew and lifeguards, and commercial boat and maritime personnel benefit from knowing how to use O2 equipment and provide oxygen, everyone who has an interest in safety and well-being in an emergency can use these important skills.
