          Abstract

          We report resuscitation of a near-drowning child by a bystander in a rural south China township. Resuscitation was performed on a 6-year-old, otherwise healthy boy who was witnessed drowning in a river, with submersion for approximately 12 min. Following several resuscitation attempts, spontaneous breathing was established at the scene and the boy was transferred to a nearby hospital. He developed pneumonia but recovered completely on the ward and was discharged without any neurologic disabilities. This case shows that early bystander resuscitation is an important factor for survival after submersion. The search for an ideal approach to resuscitation must continue, and all members of society must work together towards this goal.

          Out-of-hospital cardiac arrest due to drowning: An Utstein Style report of 10 years of experience from St. Mary's Hospital.

          Drowning is a unique form of cardiac arrest and is often preventable. "Utstein Style for Drowning" was published in 2003 by the International Liaison Committee on Resuscitation (ILCOR) to improve the knowledge-base, to provide epidemiological stratification, to recommend appropriate treatments and to ultimately save lives. We report on the largest single-center study of the Utstein Style resuscitation for drowning.
