Serious and life-threatening medical emergencies often cause oxygen to be depleted in the body, leaving the victim at risk for shock. Our Emergency Oxygen Administration program focuses on administering emergency oxygen to breathing and non-breathing persons, emergency oxygen delivery systems, and integrating pulse oximetry.
This program is for in-person training, with no online or blended portions. Students will receive a printed book and a paper certification card with the successful completion of this course.
