"The Handbook on Drowning" is the 'must have' for anyone who desires a satellite view of existing knowledge about prevention, rescue, and treatment of drowning. The book is not only a rich source of focused information, but also a stimulant for initiatives on how best to reduce the annual number of drownings, in individual cases and during disasters, and how to improve the outcome of drowning victims. This book is of great importance for those involved in the pre-hospital, emergency and intensive care treatment of drowned victims and also a rich source of information for public health officials involved in drowning prevention and for professionals involved in water rescue."@en ;
