Abstract

Objective: Drowning is a common and important cause of accidental deaths. Complications and mortality rates are high in patients requiring intensive care unit (ICU) support. The aim of our study was to determine the clinical course and treatment efficacy of a limited number of patients with acute respiratory failure and multiorgan failure due to drowning.
