The care-at-a-glance card is a quick reference guide to pack in your gear bag and review in case of an emergency. Though suited for divers, it is equally applicable to those who are around divers – boat crew, non-diving buddies, lifeguards, and shore staff.
Providing emergency oxygen after a dive accident may be the most significant factor contributing to a successful outcome in treating dive injuries.
