Pediatric Drowning

Friday, April 19
Classroom Session
Trauma (JEMS)

Drownings represent a major cause of death and injury in the pediatric population. While drowning can occur to all ages, and treatment is similar, this presentation will explore all aspects of drowning with a focus on pediatric statistics, prevention, and medical care that first responders should be aware of for the drowning victim.
