Should you find your cylinder has been contaminated by bad air, has a distinct odour or taste, you should follow the guidelines below.

After dscovery and 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 also ensue.
  • Check divers LOC
  • Administer 100 % Oxygen, if available
  • Arrange transport to medical assistance preferably, HBC
  • Take contaminated cylinder with patient for analysis and divers' computor for 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.
