Sur­vival rates are high

Mt Druitt - St Mary's Standard (East) - - NEWS -

A new study, The NSW Study of Drown­ing and Near Drown­ing in Chil­dren (016), has found im­pres­sive rates of car­diopul­monary re­sus­ci­ta­tion, with 90 per cent of chil­dren who needed CPR re­ceiv­ing it af­ter a near drown­ing. Trauma Sur­geon at The Chil­dren’s Hos­pi­tal at West­mead Pro­fes­sor Danny Cass said “early CPR has been shown to con­trib­ute to greater sur­vival”.
