Help Save a Life
Take the Emergency First Response course here on Koh Lanta and prepare yourself for the challenging Rescue Diver course on Koh Lanta.
As you become a more experienced diver, it's important that you also expand your knowledge and skills. Dealing with problems, and learning you to help both yourself, and others, is a key part of becoming a more experienced, knowledgeable, and safe diver.
A key part of being able to help other people is being able to provide emergency first aid to an injured or sick person.
This is even more important when diving, often in remote areas with no emergency healthcare or hospitals close by.
What's Involved ?
The Emergency First Response (EFR) course teaches divers how to deal with life threatening problems, and how to keep someone alive until professional medical help arrives.
In the first part of the course, Primary Care, you'll learn how to assess life threatening injuries. This includes learning how to maintain an open airway, provide CPR, deal with serious bleeding, shock and spinal injuries.
The second part of the course, Secondary Care, teaches you how to provide care for those who aren't in a life threatening situation, including injury and illness assessment, pending the arrival of professional medical assistance.
If the EFR course is taken along with the PADI Rescue Diver course on Koh Lanta. We will also teach you how to correctly prepare medical oxygen equipment and how to effectively administer medical oxygen to patients.
