I've been super busy with school this semester -- no time for Atheist Nexus, sadly!!
If anyone who's around here a lot wants me to toss them moderation privileges to run this group or anything, just send me (Sara) a message! Thanks!

Removed ability to send mass messages to everyone in the group. At 1000+ members, that seems like asking for spam.

Offer still open if anyone active in the group wants moderation privileges, but it appears everything has been going smoothly with all kinds of great discussions without moderation. Fantastic! :)

Well in the world of ressussitation, the 80s is a very very long time ;P
--the Heimlick manoeuvre is out
--ventilating is out in single person CPR
--pulling on a broken leg, etc etc.
If the survivability statement were true... I would have found reliable statistics... and I could find none. I've also had valid rescue/1st-aid/CPR /lifeguard training uninterrupted up until today. I'm thinking the only relevance is from a forensics perspective, in being able to tell where a person drowned.

Fresh water vs salt water drowning obviously makes no diffeence if you die. but if you are rescued and revived, that is when it makes a huge difference. Salt waster near-drowning victims usually survive, fresh water near-drowning victims often die despite being revived and seeming to be okay initially. Or at least, this is what was being taught in Junior Ambulance Corps back in the 1980s...

So after reading that about.com web page, I went and did some hunting. Unfortunately, about.com, as per their usual, slightly misrepresent this situation. The speed of drowning is the same whether or not in salt or fresh water. And from the paramedic perspective, there are no stats indicating a difference in rescussitation success between near drownings in fresh vs salt water. A very large number of "fresh water" drownings, are unsupervised children in pools and bathtubs, mostly at home. So what my lungs look like after I'm drowned is not really a great concern to me! This is one of the reasons science is not always the best model for creating social guidelines, sometimes, even when the science is true, it is not relevant in the way we assume it to be.

Until today, I didn't know that fresh water in the lungs does more damage than salt water.
