Manage stress and panic
The rescue course is a basic skill development.
Stress and Panic is the my most vivid lesson in the first full day of a Rescue Diver course, you will emerge feeling more confident in your dive skills.
The classroom sessions covered how to assess an emergency, organize a rescue effort, treat for drowning and administer oxygen for DCI, among other things (independent first aid and CPR certification will be required before we finish the course).Then you practice skills like towing a tired diver and air-sharing. You practice each until we get it right, then add another. Running through each drill is a common thread; besides meeting the victim’s immediate need (for air, a tow), You have to treat what is almost always his real problem: too much stress.
Stress has physical causes (“I’m cold, I’m tired”) and psychological causes (“I’m confused, I’m worried”) that can feed one another and grow to anxiety and then panic if not controlled. Many dive emergencies, like avalanches, start with a minor problem–a leaky mask, say, or a sticky power inflator. The minor problem causes stress, which impairs judgment, which leads to a bigger problem, more stress, worse judgment, and so on.
A major goal of the rescue diver is to stop the avalanche to disaster early, before it gains power and speed, by reducing and managing stress. And stress, as I found out, attacks both victims and rescuers.
The Rescue Diver course teaches that the best medicine for stress calls “solution thinking.” Basically, it’s the classic formula: Stop. Breathe. Think. Act. “You’ve got to break the instinctive fight-or-flight response, because your instinctive reaction is usually the wrong reaction,” he says. “The first thing to do is stop.”
The next step, taking a slow, deep breath, also requires no thinking. Both steps calm you down, allowing your brain to engage for step three, thinking through a rational course of action. Only then do you act. “Solution thinking doesn’t start with ‘Act,’ it ends with it,”.
10 Tricks I Learned in Rescue Class
1. When towing a tired diver, ask him to help by finning a little, even if you don’t need the help. By making him a co-rescuer instead of a helpless victim, you may restore his confidence and head off stress.
2. As you approach a surfaced diver looking distressed, asking a question like “Are you OK?” gives a clue to his state of mind. If he doesn’t answer or if he acts like he didn’t hear, he may be approaching panic.**
3.** Say, “I can help” as you approach. The words give surprising comfort to a panicky diver.
4. If a panicky diver on the surface rushes toward you, back up toward the boat or shore. That leads him closer to safety.**
5.** The best first aid for a tired diver at the surface is more buoyancy. Fatigue means stress and fear of sinking, and he may be closer to panic than either of you realizes. If he inflates his BC or dumps his weights (or you do it for him), he’ll relax almost instantly.
6. While towing a tired diver, keep up the cheery, optimistic chat (“We’re doing great, we’re almost there,” etc.) to keep down his anxiety level. Make eye contact if you can.
7. Finally, there’s a use for a snorkel: extend it, instead of your hand, to a tired, panicky diver. If he takes it in a death grip, you can let go if you have to.
8. After passing your octopus to a diver who’s low on air, don’t start ascending immediately. Pause a moment for both of you to establish a breathing rhythm, get used to the situation, make sure you’ve got a grip on each other (with right hands) and calm down. Only then start up.**
9.** Giving one rescue breath every five seconds means counting to “one thousand four,” not five, between them. You’re giving the breath on “five.”
10. “Bounce” an unconscious or helpless diver to get him onto the dive platform. First, dump all his gear. Put one of his hands on the edge of the platform, the other on top of the first, and one of your hands on top of both to hold them there. Climb out yourself, then grab his wrists and bounce him up and down in the water, higher and higher. At the top of a bounce, jerk him onto the platform.
