Drowning Prevention Drowning mainly results from breathing being hindered. Consequently, first aid on a drowning patient focuses on the importance of restarting the breathing process. Even if the victim is still in the water, if it is necessary, and if the situation permits, artificial respiration must be performed immediately. After the mouth is cleared of any obstructing objects, the respiratory passages must be opened in an appropriate way, and artificial respiration must then be performed. While administering artificial respiration, there is the possibility that water in the respiratory tract will cause obstructions, hindering the artificial respiratory process. In this situation, it is necessary to reopen the respiratory tract and try again. If the rescuer still cannot breath in, this means that there is foreign matter causing an obstruction. At this point, if the victim is already on the boat or shore, the rescuer must try to eliminate the blockage in the respiratory tract. After successfully administering artificial respiration, if the victim is already on the boat or shore, an appraisal must be done of the situation. If the heartbeat is hard to determine, complete cardiopulmonary resuscitation must be administered. If any oxygen equipment is available, the highest and strongest amount of oxygen should be given. Any wet clothing that the victim is wearing should be removed, the body should be dried, and anything that can protect from the wind or keep the body warm (such as a blanket, dry clothes, or even aluminum foil or newspapers) should be used to wrap the body. The rescuer should also check the body for injuries or excessively coldness, thus a detailed examination should be carried out and handled carefully.
