Analgesic Gases and Oxygen Provider Level 2 (VTQ)


Analgesic gases and Oxygen provider in one course


This course is aimed at anyone who requires a course in both Analgesic Gas and Oxygen Provider. The certificate is valid for 3 years and a recommended annual refresher.

This course covers the basics of how to deliver oxygen in first aid emergencies. Oxygen within first aid by trained rescuers can provide an effective way of saving a life or just promoting recovery. In this course, you will learn the basics of how to assemble, use and disassemble an oxygen kit. Oxygen is a simple skill but there are safety concerns, and these are also covered in full on the course.

Added to the course also is the use of bag valve masks (BVM) to deliver breaths without direct mouth contact as well as being able to deliver the breaths using 100% oxygen. To meet the latest guidelines, pulse oximetry is also covered in the course.

This course is ideal to train to use Oxygen equipment if you work in the wind turbine and offshore wind turbine industries.

Our Analgesic Gases Level 2 (VTQ) awareness course gives you the basics on how to manage and deliver Analgesic Gases to a patient like Entonox and Nitronox. Analgesic Gases are a prescription drug and completing this course will not give you the authority to buy, rent or administer Analgesic gases but it will give all the skills to help a qualified person to administer Entonox and give you the skills to be trained with the practical side by an authorised person in your workplace.

Understanding how to use analgesic gases will allow you to assist in giving it to a patient by a qualified person. This course is part of our First Person On Scene blended online course.

This qualification and most of the other ProTrainings qualifications are Endorsed by TQUK to show our commitment to extra levels of compliance and quality assurance.

All our first aid courses fully meet the latest UK and European Resuscitation Council Guidelines 2021 as per the HSE requirements.

If you need to buy Oxygen, please contact us as we can supply this in different sizes of cylinders including 1, 2, 2.7, 8 and 10 litre.  You can rent these on an annual basis and get fast refills. In our store, there are different bags to carry your cylinder and equipment and we also sell a full range of Oxygen administration equipment. We also offer Nitronox in 1, 2 and 10-litre sizes.
