In summary, a group of international experts agreed on these recommendations for unified drowning-related definitions and guidelines for reporting data. These terms are intended to improve the clarity of scientific investigations. Improved validity, clarity, and data compatability of future scientific investigations of drowning will improved the knowledge base, epidemiological stratification, and appropriate treatment of victims of drowning and ultimately save lives. The consensus task force welcomes comments or questions regarding these recommendations. Letters from organizations that wish to be represented at future conferences are also invited.
