Acute renal impairment after immersion and near-drowning. (1/47)

Acute renal impairment (ARI) secondary to immersion and near-drowning is rarely described and poorly understood. A retrospective case-control study was performed: (1) to determine the incidence of ARI associated with near-drowning or immersion and (2) to define the clinical syndrome and to assess clinical predictors of ARI. Of 30 patients presenting after immersion or near-drowning, 50% were identified with ARI, with a mean admission serum creatinine of 0.24 +/- 0.33 mmol/L (2.7 +/- 3.7 mg/dl). These patients were a heterogeneous group: Eight had mild reversible ARI, three had ARI related to shock and multisystem failure, two had rhabdomyolysis-related ARI, and two had severe isolated ARI. Two patients required supportive hemodialysis and two died. Patients with ARI experienced more marked acidosis than control patients, as measured by serum bicarbonate (P < 0.001), pH (P < 0.001), and base excess (P < 0.001). There was also a higher admission lymphocyte count in the ARI group (P = 0.056). Dipstick hematuria on admission was significantly more common in patients with ARI (P = 0.016), and patients with 2 to 3+ of admission dipstick proteinuria had a higher peak serum creatinine than patients with less proteinuria (P < 0.05). Admission predictors of ARI by univariate logistic regression analysis included reduced serum bicarbonate (P = 0.002), pH (P = 0.001), and base excess (P < 0.001). The best predictor of ARI on multivariate analysis was a negative base excess (P = 0.01). In summary, acute renal impairment commonly occurs after immersion and near-drowning and is a heterogeneous condition. Although mild reversible renal impairment (serum creatinine < 0.30 mmol/L) (3.4 mg/dl) is usual, severe acute renal failure requiring dialysis can occur. It is recommended that any patient who presents after near-drowning or immersion should be assessed for potential ARI by serial estimations of serum creatinine, particularly when there is an increase in the initial serum creatinine, marked metabolic acidosis, an abnormal urinalysis, or a significant lymphocytosis.  (+info)

Acute subdural hematoma due to near-drowning--case report. (2/47)

A 46-year-old male was transferred to our hospital after near-drowning when swimming. Examination found no subcutaneous hematoma or abrasion on his head. Cardiopulmonary resuscitation was started immediately. Emergent computed tomography (CT) revealed no abnormalities. The next day, his consciousness level improved and repeat CT suggested an acute spontaneous subdural hematoma in the parieto-occipital region. The acute subdural hematoma was evacuated. The source of bleeding was probably an abnormally large vein located in the center of the hematoma. The patient was discharged without neurological deficit. Repeat CT is needed even if there were no abnormality on initial CT after drowning.  (+info)

Epidemiology of unintentional drowning and near-drowning in Denmark in 1995. (3/47)

OBJECTIVES: To determine the pattern of accidental drowning and near-drowning in Denmark. DESIGN: Prospective study of all cases of accidental drowning and near-drowning during one year. SETTING: Denmark, 1995. SUBJECTS: All patients brought to Danish hospitals after incidents of unintentional near-drowning or cooling in water and all fatal cases. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES: Number of near-drowned patients reported prospectively by hospital departments supplemented by cases reported after requests based on the National Patient Register. Number of drownings reported by public health medical officers (as medical examiners), institutes of forensic medicine, and hospitals. RESULTS: Sixty three (38%) of 167 unintentionally immersed persons died: eight (17%) of 47 children and 55 (46%) of 120 adults. The annual incidence of serious immersion events in children leading to hospital contact was 5.2/100,000; mortality was 0.7/100,000. For adult males the annual incidence of serious unintentional immersions was 4.3/100,000 and for females 1.2/100,000. For foreigners the risk was three to four times higher than for Danes. CONCLUSIONS: More attention should be paid to the risk of drowning in children, adult males, and foreigners.  (+info)

Rapidly progressive pneumonia due to Aeromonas hydrophila shortly after near-drowning. (4/47)

An 87-year-old woman died of rapidly progressive pneumonia due to Aeromonas hydrophila shortly after a near-drowning event. Autopsy showed necrotizing pneumonia and postmortem cultures of both blood and lung revealed the organism. Fulminant pneumonia should be considered in patients of a near-drowning event.  (+info)

Injuries in whitewater kayaking. (5/47)

OBJECTIVE: To provide epidemiological data on whitewater kayaking injuries using a descriptive study. METHODS: A retrospective survey was distributed at whitewater events and club meetings, and made available and advertised on the world wide web, through postings and announcements to newsgroups, related sites, and search engines. Data on sex, age, experience, and ability were collected. Injury data collected included mechanism, activity, difficulty of rapid, and self reported severity. RESULTS: Of the 392 kayaking respondents included in the final analysis, 219 suffered 282 distinct injury events. The number of days spent kayaking per season was the only independent predictor of injury. The overwhelming majority of injuries occurred while the kayaker was still in the boat (87%). Striking an object was the most common mechanism of injury (44%), followed by traumatic stress and overuse (25% each). The most common types of injury were abrasion (25%), tendinitis (25%), contusion (22%), and dislocation (17%). The upper extremity, especially the shoulder, was the most commonly injured area of the body. Although half of injured kayakers sought medical care for their injury, and almost one third missed more than one month of kayaking because of the injury, almost all (96%) reported a complete or good recovery. CONCLUSIONS: Factors relating to likelihood of injury appear to be connected with exposure, namely the number of days a year that the sport was pursued. Except for class V (extreme) kayakers, reports of injuries paralleled the number of participants. Kayakers reported injuries predominantly on rivers that they assessed to be at a level appropriate to their skills.  (+info)

Use of Washington State newspapers for submersion injury surveillance. (6/47)

OBJECTIVES: To evaluate the usefulness of newspapers as a surveillance tool for submersion injury, the proportion of submersion events and important details reported in Washington State newspapers was determined. It was also determined whether a letter sent to newspaper editors to encourage reporting changed the proportion and content of reported submersion events. METHODS: Newspaper articles regarding submersion were collected from 225 Washington newspapers from June 1993 through September 1998. Newspaper articles were linked to computerized state death and hospital records. Reporting during periods before and after a letter was sent encouraging more newspaper articles on submersion injury and preventative factors was compared. RESULTS: A total of 1,874 submersion victims were identified in the three data sources. Of the 983 victims who had a death certificate, 52% were reported in at least one news article. Of the 471 persons in hospital discharge data, 25% were reported in a newspaper. Reporting of pediatric victims who died increased from 63% to 79% (p=0.008); reporting of hospitalized persons increased from 23% to 27% (p=0.3). There were increases in reporting of swimming ability (7% to 15%, p<0.001), supervision (82% to 91%, p<0.001), and alcohol use (7% to 24%, p<0.001). Reporting of life vest use decreased (35% to 23%, p<0.001). CONCLUSIONS: Newspapers failed to report about one half of fatal submersions and three quarters of submersions that resulted in a hospitalization. An effort to improve reporting was associated with an increase in the proportion of pediatric drownings that were reported, but a consistent improvement in content was found. The usefulness of newspaper articles as a surveillance tool may be limited.  (+info)

Mycotic aneurysms as lethal complication of brain pseudallescheriasis in a near-drowned child: a CT demonstration. (7/47)

Intracranial true mycotic aneurysms are rare and generally lethal. We report a case of a near-drowned child with brain abscesses due to Pseudallescheria boydii, a saprophytic fungus, who died after subarachnoid hemorrhage occurred. CT showed contrast-enhancing lesions indicative of aneurysms of basilar and right posterior cerebral arteries that could not be appreciated 2 days before. P. boydii is often resistant to commonly used antimycotic drugs. Because CNS infection is frequently associated with near-drowning, early diagnosis and specific therapy are strongly recommended for these patients.  (+info)

Drowning and near drowning in children in the United Kingdom: lessons for prevention. (8/47)

OBJECTIVES: To determine the pattern of drowning and near drowning of children in Britain and identify means of prevention. DESIGN: Study of drowned and nearly drowned children under 15 years old. SETTING: United Kingdom, 1988 and 1989. SUBJECTS: Children under 15 years either drowning or admitted to hospital after a submersion incident. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES: Number of nearly drowned children, obtained from consultant paediatricians returning monthly notification cards through the British Paediatric Surveillance Unit. Number of drowned children notified by the Office of Population Censuses and Surveys and other national epidemiological offices; information from coroners. RESULTS: 306 children had confirmed submersion incidents: 149 died and 157 survived after near drowning. The annual incidence in England and Wales was 1.5/100,000, and mortality 0.7/100,000. Mortality was lowest in public pools 6% (2/32) and highest in rivers, canals, and lakes (78%, 56/73). Most of the children (263, 83%) were unsupervised at the time of the accident. 208 (68%) children were under 5 years old. CONCLUSIONS: Drowning and near drowning of children are problems in the British Isles. Appropriate supervision and safety barriers seem important for preventing such accidents. Improving information on dangers of drowning given to parents through the child surveillance programmes, encouraging fencing or draining of garden ponds and domestic swimming pools, and increasing supervision of swimming in lakes, rivers, and beaches should reduce the number of accidents.  (+info)

Through the DAN Oxygen First Aid for Scuba Diving Injuries course, DAN trained thousands of instructors to teach recreational divers how to provide vital oxygen first aid in the event of a diving accident. As diving enthusiasts, we are also water enthusiasts. Unfortunately, scores of children and adults perish each year in drowning accidents. The DAN Oxygen First Aid for Aquatic Emergencies program trains you to use oxygen to provide emergency first aid to a near-drowning victim. Just as oxygen can provide relief and hasten recovery for a victim of decompression illness, oxygen can increase the survival odds for a near-drowning victim.. Medical Community Sees the Importance of Oxygen in Near-Drowning Incidents. The medical literature is replete with references to the advantages of oxygen administration in all resuscitation efforts, particularly in near-drowning victims. As noted by one author: In a pediatric near-drowning victim, in the first ten minutes after a rescue, oxygen administration ...
All the case reports suggested that steroids are of benefit in near-drowning. The only prospective study included 10 patients. However, all seven of those given methylprednisolone (5mg/kg/24 hours i.v. divided into 6 equal doses) survived. All the other studies were retrospective analyses of case notes. None showed any benefit from steroids, but they did not provide enough data about the steroids used, the doses used, or specific outcomes to provide reliable evidence. Case reports, which may be inherently biased, show some benefit, but there is no good evidence that the routine use of intra-venous steroids improves the outcome in cases of near-drowning. There may be a case for conducting a properly controlled trial to settle the issue ...
What is near-drowning? Near-drowning is a common but out-of-date phrase for surviving a drowning event. Drowning happens when a person is underwater and breathes water into the lungs. The airway (larynx) can spasm and close, or water can damage the lungs and keep them from taking in oxygen. In either...

Two important findings in Pius IXs history are likely responsible for his epilepsy. First, he had a traumatic near-drowning event as a young child, which several sources cite as having contributed to his epilepsy.7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 13, 14, 15 A near-drowning event could lead to a global CNS hypoxia. Second, he likely had a CNS lesion from some developmental process, as evidenced by an asymmetry in photos of Pius IXs face that was apparent to all 3 epileptologists (Figure 1). Asymmetry affecting the lower half of the face suggests an upper motor neuron lesion of the 7th cranial nerve, which would be consistent with a focal lesion often seen among patients with partial epilepsy.29 Pius IX was the youngest of 9 siblings, none of whom were reported to have had epilepsy, making it less likely that there was a generalized inherited condition. Suggestions of the traumatic events are demonstrated in the following passage: As a youth in Italy, Pius IX annually went to visit his mother at the Shrine of ...
The Trotting Horse Method of resuscitation dates back to the early 19th century and was used to revive near-drowning victims who came a cropper while swimming in Europes inland waterways. The victim would be draped over the back of a horse which would be encouraged to gallop or trot. It was believed that the bouncing of the victims body against that of the galloping horse would result in the alternate compression and relaxation of the chest cavity.. In 19th century America, any lifeguard worth his salt would have been equipped with a horse on standby to treat any unfortunate individuals who got into difficulty in the sea. However, the Trotting Horse Method of resuscitation was banned in America in 1815 due to a large number of public complaints relating to the mess that the horses created on the beaches.. ...
The colloquial expression about blowing smoke up a persons ass generally means they are being dishonestly flattered. But Today I Found Out went back in history to see where the phrase originated.. While its unclear whether there is a direct link with the phrase, doctors did actually used to blow smoke into peoples rectums in the late 1700s as the predominant medical therapy to try and resuscitate people who were believed to be dead, narrator Simon Whistler said. Mostly it was used on near-drowning victims.. The treatment was so commonplace that equipment for it was stored near waterways, much like defibrillators are often stored for use in public areas today.. To help people remember how to properly use it, one doctor even wrote a rhyme that went, Tobacco glyster (enema)/Breathe and bleed. Keep warm and rub till you succeed. And spare no pains for what you do; may one day be repaid to you.. Tobacco was thought to have healing properties and the tobacco smoke enema was used for various ...

Drowning is the second leading cause of accidental injury in children ages 1 to 14. Many kids who survive near-drowning have permanent physical and neurological disabilities.
The incidence of drowning in both veterinary medicine and human medicine is likely under reported due to natural disasters that occur; however it is a leading cause of accidental death, particularly in young males. It is an uncommon presentation in veterinary medicine (compared to human medicine) likely from veterinary patients ability to swim at birth and through life. Rare case reports and one case series exist in the veterinary literature. One case report is a gelding that became entangled in a safety line while swimming in a pool, another is of a Golden retriever found in a body of water, and some abuse cases from the UK have been reported. There is one case series presented as an abstract at IVECCS in 2006 of 15 dogs and 1 cat; 5 of the pets developed respiratory failure and 37% were non-survivors. It tended to occur in the warmer months (May-Nov) in 9 natural bodies of water and 5 man made bodies of water (1 was not recorded). There has been much debate recently regarding appropriate ...

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) has just issued a warning about in-home drownings, noting that the end of outdoor swimming and pool season does not indicate that drowning dangers for young children end. According to the CPSC, after pools, more children drown in bathtubs than in any other product in and around the home.. The CPSC said its staff received reports of an average of 90 children younger than five years of age who drowned in bathtubs (62 percent), baby seats or bathinettes (15 percent), buckets and pails (11 percent), landscaping or yard products (six percent), and other products (four percent) during 2003-2005. There was an annual average of an additional 39 reports of non-fatal submersion incidents for 2005-2007 reported for the same products. Most drownings and non-fatal submersion incidents involved children younger than two years old.. “What parents need to know is that anywhere there is water, there is ...

Mikes secondary specialty in the SEAL force is as an advanced combat medic. Without getting into specifics on his experiences, Mike strongly disputes Nances exaggerations of waterboarding. There is a word for people who have pint after pint of water filling their lungs: dead. In fact, according to Mike, they would be very, very dead. By definition, anyone who has drowned is in fact dead. A large percentage of true drownings do not involve ANY water entering the lungs because the epiglottis closes off the air passages as water enters the throat. People who die immediately from being immersed in water actually die of suffocation, not water entering their lungs. Not only that, many people who survive a near-drowning who do have even small amounts of water that slip by the epiglottis and enter their lungs can die later of fluid shifts and pneumonia. I can assure you that we do not use any technique that involves true suffocation or aspiration of water into the lungs. One cannot get questions ...
Credit: Gregg DeGuire/WireImageLast week, we learned Bobbi Kristina Brown died from the long-term effects of both near-drowning and drug intoxication, according to Browns unsealed autopsy report. Now, the late stars longtime-boyfriend, Nick Gordon, is seeking to have his name cleared of any wrongdoing in her death.. On Tuesday, Gordons attorneys released a statement of his behalf, asserting that Browns death has been tumultuous for Gordon ever since he lost the love of his life when Bobbi Kristina was found face down in a bathtub in her Roswell, GA, home in January 2015.. On top of being prohibited from visiting Bobbi Kristina at the hospital for the last six months of her life, Nick has been publicly humiliated for more than a year, the statement reads. And throughout that time, the Fulton County District Attorneys office has tried to make Nick a murderer despite having clear and convincing evidence that Bobbi Kristinas death was nothing more than a tragic accident, evidence that ...

Attendees can learn about their unique approach to anoxic injuries such as near-drowning and cerebral palsy ORLANDO, FL, August 08, 2017 /24-7PressRelease/ - Hypoxia and Anoxia refer to low levels of oxygen or a complete absence of oxygen to the brain or other major organs and muscles, which can result in permanent disability or death. At Plasticity Brain Centers of Orlando, the team of board-certified doctors, neurology specialists, and the hand-selected staff of patient care coordinators and therapists are experienced in treating all types of brain injuries including those resulting from the leading causes of hypoxia and anoxia.. While both of these conditions can be caused by any number of different environmental or medical conditions (heart attacks, severe asthma, anemia, carbon monoxide/ carbon dioxide poisoning, choking, pre and postnatal trauma), among children 14 and under, it is most often attributed to water-related injuries.. Drowning is the fifth leading cause of unintentional ...
Most incidents involving children under five years of age (54% of the injuries and 85% of the facilities) occurred at residences.

Airway and respiratory issues are among the most common emergencies in infants and children. Many other pediatric emergencies that are commonly seen in the operating room or emergency department require a specialized perspective. This chapter covers pediatric airway emergencies, including outside the operating room, and throughout the perioperative period. Problems such as upper airway obstruction, foreign bodies, and lower airway obstruction are also discussed. Common emergency department issues such as burns, near-drowning, and trauma, and pediatric and neonatal advanced life support are covered.

Acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) is a life-threatening complication of critical illness. These underlying critical illnesses may include sepsis, pancreatitis, pneumonia (either due to an infection or the inhalation of foreign materials), trauma, near-drowning, and other severe illnesses. In ARDS, massive inflammation and the release of various inflammatory chemicals leads to the leaking of capillaries within the lungs. Signs of ARDS include increased respiratory rate, blue discoloration to skin and mucous membranes due to poor oxygen delivery, and occasionally coughing. Treatment of ARDS is primarily focused on supportive care and addressing the underlying critical illness. ...

Background: Hypoxic encephalopathy is a syndrome produced by a decreased oxygen supply or sustained reduction of cerebral blood flow. It can be caused by systemic hypoxaemia, an oxygen transport alteration or a global reduction of cerebral blood flow, with a cardiorespiratory arrest being the most common cause in adults [1].. Coma is commonly observed in the first several hours to days and about half of these patients die. Up to 200 people per one million inhabitants are saved after cardiac arrest in developed countries; however, half of these survivors suffer severe neurological sequelae.

Imaging findings are useful in the prediction of neurologic recovery. CT has a limited value in most cases. MRI due to its sensitivity is the technique of choice to assess the extent and severity of the injured brain.. Imaging Perspective: ...
