Rescuer specialist, Water Rescue Service of the Czech Red Cross Prague and City of Prague Emergency Medical Service, Prague, Czech Republic
The algorithm follows the basic principles that are taught for rescuing a drowning victim. The animations that accompany each question appeal to younger students without offending older ones.
This educational material provides step-by-step instructions, as well as questions on the following topics: meeting a drowning victim, principles for calling the emergency services, assessing your strength and abilities, and course of action in the water. At the same time, it touches upon CPR on a drowning victim.
I believe this educational material is simple, useful and can be used by all age groups.
