Should you find your cylinder has been contaminated by bad air, you should follow the guidelines below.

Before you dive.
Return cylinder to source of fill, explain cylinder is contaminated and ask Fill station Manager to check.
If you are happy with their response or actions, then proceed with their recommendations

Should a diver have breathed contaminated air at depth

  • Check diver for signs of CO poisoning i.e. Red finger nail beds, or inside of lips, headaches, dizziness, nausea or unconsciousness may ensue.
  • Check divers LOC
  • Administer 100 % O2, if available
  • Arrange transport to medical assistance preferably, HBC
  • Take contaminated cylinder with patient for analysis and divers' dive profile.
  • Do not administer fluids, keep patient warm, not hot. (shock management)
  • Inform fill station of incident.
  • Maintain watch on patient until medical help arrives and inform officers that patient has breathed compressed air at depth that is suspected of being contaminated. Express patient should be maintained on Oxygen for transport to hospital or HBC.
    To avoid breathing contaminated air, always test your air supply before use.

Step One: Have cylinder filled only at reputable air source.  Ask to sight latest air purity report, should be dated within three months.
Step Two: Smell supplied air before leaving fill station.
Step Three: Place white cloth or hanky over outlet, purge valve slightly and view for signs of rust or foreign material.
Step Four: Taste air for anything out of the ordinary, remembering air should not have any taste or odour.
