How to Survive in Cold Water

How to Survive in Cold Water | Risk Management AS 2.7 | Scoop.it
Hypothermia means a person is cold, too cold to function, too cold to live. Hypothermia takes longer to set in than cold shock, and has many faces. As related in CONFESSIONS OF A WAVE WARRIOR, I once got hypothermia by swimming alone in cold water (56F) too long.

 

What can you do if you or someone else falls into cold water?

 

Here are tips on how to survive.

For my damsel a fall into the freezing water is one of the larger risks, as it can't be removed or fenced off the solution is to train and prepare staff on what to do incase of a cold water immersion. This article provides great resources in training staff on how to manage and escape from a cold water immersion. the other strategy to prevent this accident from occuring is to install a safety step/ladder for staff to exit the pool if fallen and also to ensure that staff only enter in pairs and a rescue pole is placed at easy access within the enclosure.

Hypothermia, similar to high blood pressure, may be referred to as a, "silent killer," in the sense that a number of the people affected by it are unaware of the threat it presents. Where hypothermia is concerned, seniors may not be aware they are becoming cold as quickly as those who are younger and their bodies might not adjust to changes in temperature.

Buoyancy Control!

Buoyancy Control! | Risk Management AS 2.7 | Scoop.it

Q: My buoyancy used to be perfect, but not anymore. I weigh as much as I used to and still wear the same wetsuit and amount of weight as before. What's changed?

 

 

Most likely it's your wetsuit. Over time, neoprene loses buoyancy because some of the cells collapse or fill with water. Frequent use—or abuse by storing your weight belt on top of it—will accelerate the process, but all wetsuits become less buoyant as they are used.
