If you don’t think that drowning is a major health problem and a high risk factor for water sports enthusiasts then you probably don’t work in a hospital emergency department.

Every water user should be familiar with the skills and techniques required by first responders in the rescue and treatment of a drowning or hypothermic casualty. This guide will give you those skills and prepare you for real life water based emergencies. Knowing what to do and when to do it can literally be the difference between life and death.

  • Did you know that that drowning is the leading cause of injury-related death among children between 1 and 4 years old?
  • Did you know that nearly 80% of people who die from drowning are male?
  • Did you know that 50% of boating deaths could be prevented if the casualty wore a life jacket?
  • Did you know that the more quickly cpr is started in the field then the better the casualty outcome?

Don’t add to the statistics – know what to do and when to do it!
