Drowning is the leading cause of death due to injury in children between the ages of one and four in the United States (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention [CDC], 2019). It is estimated that five times that many children are treated for non-fatal drowning submersion incidents (CDC, 2016). Non-fatal drowning is a cause of significant neurological morbidity in children. Hospital treatment that includes an interprofessional approach to the treatment and rehabilitation of patients with anoxic brain injury from non-fatal drowning has been shown to reduce medical complications, mortality, lengths of hospital stay, and healthcare costs (Goldsberry, 2018).
The goal of this course is to provide healthcare professionals in with an overview of team-based care for the young child who has experienced a near-drowning accident.
