    I'm not current. find that resuscitaion of people found underwater during the summer still wearing ice skates is a lost cause.
    I don't go diving without having 40cuft of O2 in the car though.
    CPR & AED are a wasted effort for divers wearing RB/Doubles, drysuit, heating vest, thinsulate, and stages. They're long dead by the time you get them somewhere where you can do anything to them, there is a reason why rescue diving is not taught by the big technical agencys (NSS/CDS, NACD, CDG, IANTD, ANDI, TDI, GUE,and others).

    Number one killer in the country is heart disease. Statistically a diver is more likely to die on the surface than in the water.

    So, while someone is horsing a couple of 108s to the waters edge they collapse, is it still a wasted effort?

    Edited to add: oftentimes a constant flow/medical O2 bottle is far better than a demand valve reg.

    Long had respect for your diving accomplishments Michael...but have to disagree here quite a bit. CPR, first aid and AED use are basic skills any technical diver should have. Oya is quite right, you are more likely to use them on some other recreational diver on the boat...but you will eventually need them...surprised you never have needed these skills.

    I have seen more than one diver progress from a bad bends hit to the "chokes"for instance...these cases sometimes arrest...and often are out of the water for a while before getting into real trouble.

    With heart disease being the number one killer....these are skills everyone should have before going to the mall...much less a dive. IANTD and TDI have rescue classes...the others used to recommend that all divers coming to them be at least at that level (Rescue Diver)...but long gone are the days when everyone in the cave class was at least an instructor....

    Not so much CPR, but rescue/lift in a technical situation.

    Current. As a recreational instructor - most months I teach one of these classes.

    Most of the emergencies I've seen have been non-scuba. Generally automobile accidents. CPR AED first aid and oxygen provider are all handy skill to have.

    I believe this is a skill set every diver should have especially technical divers. The more knowledgable we are the better dive team members we make. I have a soapbox that I could get on for now I will hold off lol

    These skills are also applicable on land... just sayin'. They have come in handy to many divers in non dive situations...

    Isn't crossover cool?
