Dry Drowning in Infants

Dry Drowning in Infants

When we breathe, expansion of lungs takes place, which generates a negative pressure in the lungs. The air that is filled up in the chest is inhaled by nose and travels from the nose, larynx, and upper airways. This is the normal functioning of lungs while we breathe. According to the classical definition of drowning, the term is used to describe death when occurred due to water filled in lungs. The person feels suffocated due to water in his lungs. Thereafter, this suffocation causes death. However, this is not the case with dry drowning, where an involuntary laryngospasm reflex causes an inability to breathe, as air cannot be inhaled into the lungs. This leads to unconsciousness and the person dies from lack of oxygen. It is a type of suffocation. This article will educate you about dry drowning in infants.
