Oxygen Administration and Pulse Oximetry

It is quite common for individuals in the community to need oxygen therapy. This can be for a number of reasons of which will all be discussed as a group within the session. Our trainer and RGN will systematically take the delegates through the anatomy and physiology, how oxygen effects our bodies and what can happen when we do not have enough. The hazard, risks and safety implications will be identified as well as how we can reduce risks whilst adhering to the legislation and codes of practice.

Delegates will have the opportunity to understand the different types/methods of oxygen delivery and the equipment needed. Delegates will also be taught on how to monitor an individual's oxygen levels and when they need to be responsive and alert emergency medical professional.

The course covers the following core elements:
  • Relevant legislation and code of practice
  • Different medical gases and their uses in medicine
  • Dangers of working with medical gases and safe operating practices
  • Types of gas supply, equipment and safe working practice
  • Fault identifying and appropriate action
  • Preparing a cylinder for use

I really enjoyed the emergency first aid online course. I have done a few and this one was very detailed. It probably helps it is one of my favourite subjects, but it is not too easy, it's spot on! I look forward to the practical and I'm really happy I beat the record. I expect a gold badge lol.. I learnt some new skills to remember, I never knew about Agonal breathing .... very interesting. I'm glad I'm making an impact before even starting properly. I also took load of notes for uni!

Both of the trainers I have met have made the training interesting & informative, & I learn something new every time.
