 Twin sisters drowning in Qingdao to prevent drowning, every parent needs to know.


These two days have witnessed the latest development of the Beijing twin girls missing in Qingdao.

This afternoon, according to the local police @ Huangdao Public Security Notice, around 11:30, a girl was rescued in the sea, unfortunately, no signs of life. After the childs parents confirmation, it is the big daughter. Around 16:30, @ Huangdao public security announcement continued, another girl was found in the sea, has no vital signs. At present, the work of aftermath is being carried out.

This sad reality should arouse the vigilance of the majority of parents. How can winter children prevent this from happening when they go to the swimming pool and the seaside?

We need to know the fact that drowning is the first cause of death for children in China.

Children drowning can be prevented! The effective action we need:

When your child is in the water, in the pool, in the bathtub, or in the open waters, do not read or play with your cell phone, because drowning may happen at any time, and the process of drowning is very fast.

2. Prevention of drowning around home and around home:

The water basin and the water tank of the family should be emptied immediately after the use of the water tank; at the same time, when the parents use water, keep the children away.

After bathing the baby, empty the water in the bathtub / bathtub immediately.

The toilet in your home should be covered, and the water storage tanks in the home / home should be covered.

Ensure that the bathroom and laundry doors are closed to prevent children from entering.

If there is open water around the house, guardrail should be installed in the yard or outdoor door door to prevent children from going out on their own.

3. Drowning prevention in swimming pool:

Make sure you take your child to a regular pool.

Make sure your child has mastered water safety skills before launching, and make sure your child is doing warm-up exercises.

If children swim by themselves, you need to take effective care at all times.

Childrens water swimming toys can not replace the standard floating equipment.

4. Drowning prevention in open waters:

If you take your children to the beach to play water or swim, you have to take care at all times.

If many people swim together at the seaside, they must be assigned to take care of their children in turn.

If you swim in the sea, make sure your child wears a safe, qualified and suitable life jacket for the childs size, and fasten all the buckles.

Teach children to swim in swimming pools and swim in open water, such as uneven waves.

If you take a child together on a boat, parents and children must wear a life jacket and ensure that all buckles are buckled.

5. Educate your child about drowning prevention

Tell your child to take part in water activities under the care of parents or adult guardians and not to go to the water to play or swim alone or with other partners.

Tell your child what he needs to do if he finds his companion drowning: shout out, but dont go into the water; throw around life buoys, etc. to the drowning person.

6, learning cardiopulmonary resuscitation for emergency use.

With regard to drowning, we may have the following misunderstandings:

1. inflatable water toys and swimming rings can protect children in water well.

This is a false cognition. Inflatable plastic water toys and swimming rings are not a professional floating equipment, but a auxiliary tool to help children float on the water temporarily. When the water changes, or the child does not catch it, the child may drown.

The usual accident is that the inflatable water toys and swimming circles suddenly turn over your childs head, inflatable water toys, and the swimming ring suddenly leaks and causes drowning. Therefore, inflatable water toys and swimming rings are only auxiliary tools, rather than life-saving devices designed specifically for life-saving. At the same time, what you must bear in mind is that no equipment can replace adult guardianship.

2. pool guardianship can be guardianship of my child

The main duty of the swimming pool guardianship is to maintain the orderly swimming pool. Swimmers can swim safely in the swimming pool. At the same time, when an accident occurs, he can give relief at the first time. For that reason, he cant keep an eye on your childs swimming condition at all times, and its your first responsibility to keep an eye on your child in the water at all times.

3. when a child drowned, he would shoot or shout loudly, so he could be found in time.

When a child drown, it doesnt really have to be able to shoot water or shout, but it is silent, even can stand still, or low head under the water, and you may think he is holding his breath. To this end, children in the water, parents should always care.

People who save drowning should quickly get cardiopulmonary resuscitation

Dont check your pulse before rescue

For years, pulse examination has always been the gold standard for assessing whether the heart is beating or not, but research shows that its accuracy is only 65%. In view of this, the 2000 international guidelines for cardiopulmonary resuscitation set out for non emergency professionals to check carotid pulsation before cardiopulmonary resuscitation, but to determine whether the drowning person has a breath, a cough, and a response to the stimulus.

Some people do not absorb any water because of larynx spasms or breath holding when drowning, so do not drain from the airways in any way except the suction device, because it is unnecessary and dangerous. For example, people often use traditional flapping method, which can lead to reverse flow of gastric contents and secondary mistaken aspiration, and can not completely drain water, and even cause other injuries. Backslapping also delays the development of cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) measures such as early ventilation and chest compression, which is not conducive to the treatment of drowning patients.

Handling of drowning patients with spinal cord injury

Spinal cord injury in drowning patients may be related to diving and underwater obstacles, so when no witnesses, the drowning should be treated as suspicious spinal cord injury. The first responders used the hands to fix the patients neck in the neutral position (no flexion), and let the drowning lie on the horizontal back support device and then lift it out of the water. When you have to turn the patient out of the water, keep your head, neck, chest and body in a straight line. In summary, all drowning patients should be considered as potential spinal cord injuries, cervical and thoracic vertebrae should be fixed to prevent spinal cord injury.

Appropriate prolongation of cardiopulmonary resuscitation time

In general, 20~30 minutes after cardiopulmonary resuscitation in patients with cardiac arrest, no recovery of autonomic circulation and irreversible performance of brain function were evaluated, and doctors declared CPR to be terminated. But for some patients with drowning cardiac arrest, the patients life can be saved successfully by prolonging the time of cardiopulmonary resuscitation, because the drowning person still has the possibility of complete recovery after a long time drowning in the water, which is the diving reflex. It slows down heart rate, constrictions around the arteriole, and drives blood from the intestines and limbs to the brain and heart. Because of this protective mechanism, cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) may be able to rescue drowning patients with circulatory arrest even if they exceed the time limit for resuscitation. Especially for children under 5 years of age, special care should be taken when CPR is terminated. Because children are more tolerant to injuries than adults, some important brain functions can be restored even if the nervous system has become unresponsive.
