Rural residents often drown

Rural residents often drown.

People in agricultural areas are nearly three times more fitting to drown than those who live in cities, a new Canadian study finds. This may be because rustic residents are more likely to be around open water and less likely to have taken swimming lessons, according to the researchers at St Michael's Hospital in Toronto pillarder com. Their findings - from an investigation of drowning incidents in the strand of Ontario between 2004 and 2008 - appeared recently in the International Journal of Aquatic Research and Education.

A move study by the St Michael's researchers found that most drowning incidents occur in free places, such as open water, recreation centers or parks. Even so, four out of five drownings happen without a witness, according to the study, which was published recently in the Canadian Journal of Emergency Medicine The researchers also found that bystanders bring off CPR in half of all drowning events, but only for one-third of all other cardiac arrests.

This may be due to the certainty that most Canadians original learn CPR in swimming classes and are more likely to associate drowning and CPR, the researchers suggested. Despite being more indubitably to receive CPR, a drowning victim's 5 percent come to pass of survival is as low as all other types of cardiac arrest.

This finding shows that more needs to be done to correct the survival chances of drowning victims, study author Jason Buick said in a dispensary news release. "We can improve survival by emphasizing the importance of providing CPR and by teaching more individuals to perform it," Buick said. He also advised people to swim in business places where it's more likely that there will be lifeguards and other people gharelu.
