Eight members turned up to today’s oxygen administration and basic life support course.
This one-day course is designed to teach the administration of oxygen as a means on increasing the effectiveness of First Aid treatment of diving accidents. Oxygen treatment takes place on the surface – either on a boat or dry land. This course gives confidence to divers so they can assist with a diving-related injury.
“Just come back from a couple of dives at wraysbury with liz what a great day. Decent vis loads of lobster size crayfish perch everywhere big ones and lots of shoals of juveniles. A couple of pikes and a leather carp. And only 10 miles from home.” – Darren
You don’t have to go all the way to the coast to enjoy UK diving.
Another trip to Vobster diving centre for Putney BSAC, this time for some for dive leader training. Once again the water was very cold, none of us could feel hands by the end of the second dive. Some valuable lessons were learnt however:
- Vobster does indeed contain some fish, we know, because we saw one on our first dive
- Never forget to bring gaffer tape, it can solve a whole range of problems
- If enjoy faffing then diving is the sport for you. 2 hours of kit set up for a half hour dive, brilliant!
