Expedience of recovery and starting of treatment. Near drowning victims who are alert, or at least have good pupillary reflex and are not in a coma should do well. Individuals who have been submerged greater than 10 minutes and have treatment resuscitation lasting longer than 25 minutes have usually less than a 5% chance of   Drowning and near-drowning incidents must be thought of as primary versus secondary events. Secondary causes of drowning include seizures, head or spine stress, cardiac arrhythmias, hypothermia, syncope, apnea, and hypoglycemia. PATHOPHYSIOLOGY. Drowning occurs when a person is submerged in normal ://   Near-drowning Definition Near-drowning is the term for survival after suffocation caused by submersion in water or other fluid. Some experts exclude from this definition cases of temporary survival that end in death within 24 hours, which they prefer to classify as ://   Pathophysiology. When an animal experiences drowning, respiratory impairment results from aspiration of water, which causes surfactant dilution and dysfunction, bronchoconstriction, increased permeability of the alveolar–capillary membrane, local inflammation and edema, and lung unit collapse. 6 Alveolar collapse decreases lung compliance and increases the work required for breathing while

The most serious pathophysiologic consequence of near-drowning is hypoxemia, which usually is due to aspiration-induced noncardiogenic edema. Therefore, initial resuscitative efforts need to be directed at establishing adequate oxygenation and ventilation, followed by rewarming and fluid Cold-water submersion results in rapidly induced hypothermia. The body's physiologic response to this insult is, in some ways, similar to that of controlled hypothermia employed in the hospital setting, with the time sequencing being greatly enhanced. The application of hypothermic techniques employ DROWNING causes almost deaths in the United States each year out of an estimated 80 near-drowning incidents.1 Males between the ages of 10 and 19 years are the most common victims.

Consider the following: Pathophysiology. Patients panic, struggle, breath hold and eventually either aspirate or go into laryngospasm. It was previously thought that patients may undergo “wet drowning” or “dry drowning” as follows: “Wet Drowning” - due to aspiration of water into the lungs (85% of cases)   The Utstein guidelines further suggest that ambiguous or confusing terms such as "near-drowning," "secondary drowning," and "wet drowning" should not be used.
