Title: Drowning


1
Drowning
  • Drowning is the second leading cause of injury
    death of infants and children younger than 15
    years of age in the United States
  • In 18 of the 50 states, drowning is the number
    one cause of unintentional injury death of
    children 1 to 4 years of age

2
  • Children less than 5 years of age and young
    people aged 15 to 24 years have the highest
    drowning rates.
  • For every child who drowns, four children are
    hospitalized for near-drowning.
  • The annual lifetime cost attributable to drowning
    and near-drowning in children less than 15 years
    of age is 384 million.

3
  • There is no national surveillance system that
    defines the circumstances surrounding a drowning
    event well enough to enable the development of
    effective preventive strategies for children.
  • A need exists to establish uniform state or local
    surveillance systems that consider (all) factors
    that place children at risk.

4
  • To design preventive strategies aimed at specific
    risk factors such surveillance systems must
    define in sufficient detail
  • The circumstances under which the drowning event
    occurred
  • Preventive measures used
  • Rescue efforts made
  • And the outcomes.
