Drowning is the process of experiencing respiratory impairment from submersion/immersion in liquid (WHO 2002 definition)
drowning can be due to — submersion (the airway goes below the level of the surface of the liquid) or — immersion (a liquid is splashed across a person’s face, e.g water-boarding)
Anaphylaxis is a severe, life-threatening, generalised or systemic hypersensitivity reaction.

The roles and priorities in a cardiac arrest situation is dependent on: the environment where arrest takes place; the nature of the cardiac arrest, ; and the skill mix of the people in the immediate environment
