Near drowing

John Tobin, Todd Stout
Progressive EMS organizations need to be monitoring, capturing and measuring data continuously, in real-time and near-real-time to ensure quality patient care and optimum clinical and operational performance. Previously, this required exhaustive staff time and efforts, cobbling data together manually from various sources. We can now use EMS technologies to make useful, actionable decisions in near-real-time based on the data we collect--all as close to the event as possible. While technology is fantastic, it's still very important to keep an overall focus on the patient...

Psychiatric disorders exhibited in 13% suicidal drownings in Southwestern Croatia and 63% in Milan, but in China is unknown. This study is committed to outline the feature of a suicidal drowning with psychiatric disorder, show mental status and reveal key factor to high incidence in China. Immersed corpses were handled by SPSBMPH in its jurisdiction range. Half of immersed corpses were suicidal, and nearly half of suicides had psychiatric disorders. 104 suicidal drownings with psychiatric disorders cases from 2010...

A 73-year-old man admitted for near drowning was found after 24 hours of mild therapeutic hypothermia to have pneumonia. Blood gas analysis showed metabolic acidosis, hypercapnia, and hyponatremia. Chest X-ray and computed tomography (CT) showed bilateral mainly lower-lobe consolidation. After being treated with 13.5 g of tazobactam/piperacillin and 1.0-1.25 g of vancomycin per day for two weeks, the man recovered from his severe respiratory failure. Enterococcus faecium was isolated twice from sputum and raising the dose of vancomycin was effective, but it took 10 days to wean him from ventilator support...

The study was to observe the therapeutic effect of HJ-1 NO--HFJV respirator on treating pulmonary edema caused by seawater drowning. Seawater was infused into the rabbit's lung to establish the animal model of pulmonary edema caused by seawater drowning(PE-SWD). Then the animals were divided into three groups: simple PE-SWD model as control group, treat group(animal model treated with HFJV respirator and four medicines) and HFJV respiratior plus NO group. Pao2, Sao2 and pH were measured by the blood-gas analyzer...

OBJECTIVE: To compare incidences of drowing for children in the Northern Territory (NT) with those in Queensland and the rest of Australia. DESIGN: Descriptive, retrospective, population-based analysis of death and hospitalisation data for drowning and near-drowning. SETTING AND PARTICIPANTS: Children aged 0-14 years resident in Australia from 1983 to 1998. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES: Age-standardised average annual incidence of drowning (1983-1998) and near-drowning (1994-1997) in children aged 0-4 and 5-14 years in the NT, Queensland and the rest of Australia...

The adult respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) in children has a very poor prognosis with a mortality risk of between 55 and 85%, in spite of improvements due to the introduction of positive endexpiratory pressure ventilation. We describe the clinical course of a not yet 3 year-old boy with severe ARDS following near-drowing. Treatment with exogenous surfactant and high frequency oscillatory ventilation, a well-established procedure in neonatology, was responsible for the favorable outcome. The high cost of surfactant therapy, however, is the main limiting factor for this kind of treatment in children beyond the neonatal period, but it may be the last therapeutic resort in the management of severe ARDS...

Massachusetts has developed the first State profile of the causes and costs of injury based on the national study, "Cost of Injury in the United States: A Report to Congress." Incidence of fatal injuries is based on Massachusetts data; nonfatal hospitalized injuries, on Massachusetts age and sex rates and U.S. cause data; and nonhospitalized injuries, on U.S. rates applied to Massachusetts census data. Lifetime costs per injured person are based on national data adjusted for higher personal health care expenditures and for higher mean annual earnings in Massachusetts...
