Oxygen Therapy

A short certification course that gives healthcare providers the knowledge and skills to administer supplemental oxygen - often taken with BLS and AM.

The Canadian Red Cross Oxygen Therapy course is designed to arm healthcare providers with the knowledge and skills to correctly identify when it is necessary to administer supplemental oxygen. This course is often taken in combination with the Basic Life Support and Airway Management courses.

Participants will learn how to properly and safely handle and assemble the equipment, and how to correctly deliver supplemental oxygen through the appropriate delivery device.

During your course, a mask that securely covers your nose, mouth and chin is mandatory. You can read our full COVID-19 Safety Plan in our Resources section.
