Diving emergency oxygen delivery unit

At DIVERS FIRST, we practise what we preach and invest in up-to-date oxygen delivery systems and related First response items. Naturally, we aim not to need these products with our first rate safety guidelines but we are always prepared.

So, here at DIVERS FIRST, we have provision of DAN Oxygen Unit with MTV. Thanks to the Manually Triggered Ventilator (instead of the standard Demand Valve), this DAN Oxygen Unit makes it also possible to resuscitate a non-breathing diver with 100% oxygen.

Eight Simple COVID-19 Risk Reduction Steps for Divers

COVID-19 primarily spreads by inhaling small droplets ex­haled by an infected person (respiratory transmission), and by touching the eyes, nose and/or mouth after touch­ing something an infected person touched or sneezed / coughed on (contact transmission). By staying aware of both, risk-reduction is usually straightforward.
Keeping things simple usually works well.

Don't go diving if you have or may have (symptoms), or have been exposed to any infectious disease. Isolate until healthy and clear accord­ing to medical advice.
Support the space program.

On the surface and out of the water, apply social distancing and give each other the local minimum required separation.

Keep your dirty mitts off!

Sanitize / wash your hands before and after touching  any dive gear (including your own), even if touching was in/underwater. Don’t touch someone else’s gear unless absolutely necessary. It’s not clear that im­mersion reduces COVID-19 contact risk, so assume that it doesn’t. Note: Rec­ommended hand sanitizers are 60°/o+ alcohol and highly flammable. Do not use hand sanitizer near oxygen nor a fire source. Be sure hands are fully dried before using either.

Don't clam up: Medical mask etiquette.

My mask helps protect you. Your mask helps protect me. Let’s follow local protocols and not be shellfish.

COVID-19 hates scuba.

Your mask reduces eyes and nose contact-risk, and  keeping it on is the best habit whenever you’re in the water anyway. Breathing from a regulator reduces your respiration transmission risk.

Be a lean, clean, sanitary machine.

 Use defog. Disinfect masks, snorkels, regulators and BCDs before another person uses them, and before storing them. Don’t sling the … stuff … out of your mask after a dive. Rinse it some­ where appropriately. Avoid spitting  /blowing nose etc. into the water where others will be / are. Use tissues and discard them appropriately. Wash / sanitize your hands after touching high contact surfaces like railings, door pulls, etc.

Sharing air is bad.

 At the surface. Diving, dive gear and wind affect the direction and distance our exhalations travel. Stay aware and avoid being on, and having someone on, the ”receiving end” when clearing snorkels, breathing hard after freediving, etc. Regulator-breathing helps protect you, but your ex­halations might affect someone who’s too close and not using a regulator.

But sharing air might be really important underwater.

So, don’t test breathe  your alternate second stage. Test purge it during checks, but leave it disin­fected in case someone needs it. Or, test breathe it, then redisinfect it.
