What you will learn on this course

Medical oxygen is a vital part of the treatment process of emergency casualties, but not a routine part of first aid. This training course complies with the Health and Safety Executive’s outline of additional training to enhance the first aid needs assessment, should a scenario call for it. Please note: this training course does not allow the learner use, administer, prescribe or train others to use medical oxygen, as it fulfils the criteria of a prescription drug under the Medicines Act 1968.

Once you have completed the course, you will know:

  1. The Law and regulations surrounding oxygen and first aid
  2. Why the casualty requires more oxygen during an emergency
  3. The benefits of using medical oxygen in scenarios like cardiac arrest, severe bleeding, shock etc
  4. The dangers of incorrect oxygen use
  5. The permissions required to use and administer medical oxygen

Every training course we teach here at Vital Workplace Training is personalised and expertly planned to maximise learning.

The full qualification specification of the medical oxygen basics course can be downloaded here.

Bespoke training sessions

Our training sessions are all custom-made to meet the needs of the attendees. Medical oxygen basic training is essential in a number of sectors, which highlights the importance of how we run our training sessions.

It wouldn’t make sense for us to provide the same session for people working in drastically different industries, which is why we put in the time and effort to personalise each training session we run.
