The safety information on drowning prevention is worth collecting. More than 30 children have died because of it.

At around 3 pm on August 5, a pair of 8-year-old twin sisters Pei Yuanjin and Pei Yuantong from Beijing went missing on the beach opposite Wanda Mansion in Huangdao District, Qingdao, Shandong Province. After receiving the alarm, the Huangdao District Public Security Bureau immediately organized police to search for the two children. . However, what is sad is that when the local police found the twin sisters in the sea on August 6, both of them had no vital signs. After forensic identification, both sisters died of drowning… From June 25 to July 26, 2018, in just one month, CCTV News reported multiple news incidents of children drowning, at least more than 30 children. Unfortunately killed. Children\’s drowning incidents occur frequently. In addition to the carelessness of guardians, another important reason is that when children have accidents, they fail to receive rescue at the first time and provide timely and effective emergency care! You thought the child was just standing but it was probably dying. Many people believe that when drowning occurs, people struggle, yell, and panic. But in fact, this kind of drowning in people\’s consciousness only exists in movies/TV. The real sign of drowning is that the body is vertical in the water, like climbing stairs. There is no cry for help, no struggle, and no lying down, but standing quietly in the water, with most of the head exposed on the water (adults usually lean back, children may lean forward), and sometimes the mouth is half closed. Outside the water and sometimes in the water, it seems to be bubbling up and down. >>>>Why don’t you call for help and struggle when you drown? This is because when drowning occurs, people will instinctively protect their respiratory system first, so the drowning person cannot speak and call for help. The arms will instinctively stretch to both sides and press down. The child may extend his arms forward, so the drowning person cannot wave for help, let alone kick, and the child will struggle for 20-60 seconds at most. Will sink. Special reminder: A drowning person may not look like he is drowning, but more like he is standing in the water, looking up at the sky or ahead, and looking very awake. This also makes it difficult for many people to notice it at all, and even the people around them are unaware of it. Drowning can not only happen in swimming pools, rivers, lakes or seas, but also in water basins used for bathing babies at home, as well as swimming (bathing) pavilions for infants and young children. There is also a risk of drowning! The bloody lessons mentioned above stung Doudehui\’s heart. If you find a child drowning, you must rescue him immediately❶ Immediately rescue the child from the water, and first determine whether the child\’s consciousness, breathing, and heartbeat are present. While patting the back, check the child\’s breathing within 5-10 seconds, and observe the rise and fall of the chest. If there is a reaction, , breathing, and vital signs. ❷ Use your hands to pry open the child\’s mouth and remove the vomit, dirt, etc. in the mouth to prevent suffocation. ❸ If cardiac arrest occurs, cardiopulmonary resuscitation should be carried out in time before the ambulance arrives. The steps are: opening the airway – artificial respiration – chest compressions. The specific method is: let the child lie on his back on the hard ground, let him raise his head, lift his chin up with your hands to help open his airway, then pinch his nose with one hand, open his mouth with the other hand, cover his mouth with his mouth and blow gently inward. , if the chest rises and falls, it proves that the insufflation is effective. At the same time, every timeAfter 2 artificial respirations, chest compressions should be performed 30 times until the color of the child\’s lips and face improves or the ambulance arrives. ❹ Press the child\’s chest, or hold the child\’s abdomen to make him stand upside down. Keep the head down and feet up to allow the water in the respiratory tract to flow out naturally. ❺ If your child’s heartbeat is slow or stops, chest compressions should be performed immediately. The specific method is: let the child lie on his back, put a hard board on his back, and tilt his head back. The rescuer\’s right palm is placed flat on the lower part of the baby\’s sternum, his left hand is placed on the back of his right hand, and the rescuer\’s body weight is used to slowly push the baby. Depress the sternum by about 4 centimeters, and then release the wrist (without leaving the hand on the sternum) to restore the sternum. Do not use too much force to prevent fracture. Repeat rhythmically until the heartbeat returns. ❻ Generally, a child\’s body temperature will be low after drowning. Be sure to keep warm and cover the child with a large towel or blanket. Please remember the above first aid measures, because the golden time for rescue is only 30 seconds! So when you see a child or an adult standing motionless in the water, whether you know them or not, please say hello loudly to them. If the other party doesn\’t answer, you would rather misjudge the person than go to the rescue as soon as possible (people who can\’t swim must ask for help from those around them who can swim). In particular, children\’s physical strength is far less than that of adults. If you see a child standing still in the water, it is likely that the child has choked on the water and lost consciousness. You must rescue him immediately. If you are already \”lying\” on the water, it is really too late! In addition to active treatment, we must also be wary of delayed drowning. People often think that as long as the drowning person is rescued from the water and no vital signs are lost at that time, it will be safe and there will be no risk of drowning. As everyone knows, after a drowning occurs, the drowning person is likely to have water in the lungs during drowning, which hinders the normal ventilation function of the lungs, leading to suffocation. Or it may be that the strong stimulation (including cold stimulation, fright, panic) and excessive tension during drowning cause larynx spasm, the glottis is closed, and normal breathing is impossible, resulting in hypoxia, suffocation or even death. Therefore, once you find that your child has symptoms of coughing, chest pain, difficulty breathing, extreme fatigue, becomes grumpy or listless after drowning, be sure to take your child to the doctor immediately! (The younger you are, the less clear you are of expressing your discomfort, so parents should closely observe whether their children’s condition is abnormal.) Be wary of the occurrence of delayed drowning! Finally, I would like to remind all parents: when we are saddened by every accident, we must always remind ourselves to take full responsibility for guardianship, strengthen the education of our children, and strictly prevent accidents from happening.
