Drowning Resuscitation Workshop
The current literature confirms that immediate action of on-the-scene bystanders saves lives. The chances of survival increasing substantially with adequate direct resuscitation on the scene. After drowning the duration of hypoxia is the most critical factor in determining the victim’s outcome. Without direct pre-hospital/on-the-scene resuscitation, the advanced life support techniques appear to be of little value in almost all cases.
