Caribbean Hyperbaric Medicine offers many different training opportunities in the realm of Hyperbaric Medicine and Scuba Diving. We offer Diver Alert Network (DAN) Courses as well. DAN statistics show that better educated divers are safer divers. Whether it's the oxygen first aid course or the more in-depth Dive Medicine for Divers series, DAN offers a comprehensive education program that prepares divers to stay safer and be ready to assist in an emergency. We offer them in conjunction with our CHT/DMT courses or they can be provided separately, based on consumer needs.

The DAN Education Courses Offered by Caribbean Hyperbaric Medicine
are as follows:

 Oxygen First Aid for Scuba Diving Injuries
 As a recreational diver, you can receive training to provide vital first  aid that can make a difference to a scuba diver with decompression  illness. The DAN Oxygen Provider course provides entry-level training in  the recognition and management of possible diving-related injuries using  emergency oxygen first aid.

Advanced Oxygen First Aid for Scuba Diving Injuries
This advanced-level program is designed to train existing DAN Oxygen Providers to use the MTV-100 or a bag valve mask while providing care for a non-breathing injured diver.

 First Aid for Hazardous Marine Life Injuries
 Serious hazardous marine life injuries are rare, but most divers  experience minor discomfort from unintentional encounters with fire  coral, jellyfish or other marine creatures. This course teaches divers to  minimize these injuries and reduce diver discomfort and pain.

Automated External Defibrillators for Scuba Diving
 More than 10 percent of all dive fatalities are actually caused by  cardiovascular disease, according to DAN dive accident and  fatality statistics. This course teaches divers and other interested  parties to provide care for sudden cardiac arrest, including the use of an automated external defibrillator (AEDs).

 On-Site Neurological Assessment for Divers
 Learn how to conduct a layman's neurological assessment on a  potentially injured diver. The information gained in this assessment  can help convince a diver of the need for oxygen first aid and help a  dive physician determine the proper treatment.

Basic Life Support and First Aid
 Basic life support (BLS) includes airway-management skills such as the  log roll and recovery position, one-rescuer cardiopulmonary  resuscitation and additional skills like caring for a choking person,  controlling bleeding and caring for a person in shock. The first aid portion of this program includes key skills such as illness and injury assessments, bandaging and splinting skills and emergency moves.

 Basic First Aid for Professionals
 This program is intended for divers who are required to have first aid,  CPR and oxygen first aid training prior to diving as part of their job  responsibilities. It combines the key skills of CPR and first aid training  with the DAN Oxygen First Aid for Scuba Diving Injuries, AEDs for Scuba Diving and First Aid for Hazardous Marine Life Injuries courses.

 Diving Emergency Management Provider Program
 Learn the knowledge and skills from several courses into one single  approach to dive emergency management.

 Dive Medicine for Divers: Part 1 If you want to know more than just  basic first aid techniques, this program is for you. This modular  program includes advanced information for the layman relating to  fitness to dive, safety planning and basic physical examinations.

 Dive Medicine for Divers: Part 2 builds on the foundation from Part 1.  This program provides information regarding topics such as  decompression illness, barotraumas and equipment-related safety  issues and includes skill development on taking a blood pressure and  using an EpiPen in the event of a severe allergic reaction.

 Dive Medicine for Divers: Part 3 This final part of the series provides  information regarding gas toxicities, drowning, ear barotrauma and  use of an otoscope.
