Long Description


Be prepared for water emergencies! If you are responsible for the welfare of those who spend time in or around the water—as an aquatic manager, scuba diving instructor, firefighter, law enforcement officer, or emergency rescue worker—or if you're a water sport enthusiast yourself, then you need to know how to prevent and manage aquatic accidents. This potentially lifesaving guide shows you how.

The only book of its kind, Aquatic Rescue and Safety provides detailed information on how to identify, treat, and prevent all types of submersion injuries, from drowning, hypothermia, and cramps to injuries of the heart, lungs, head, and spinal cord. It also contains special sections on dealing with watercraft-related and scuba diving injuries. Written by a veteran scuba diving instructor and water-rescue instructor trainer, the book presents the latest, most effective rescue and first aid procedures—techniques proven to save lives—for all water-related injuries.

The book also examines the causes of submersion injuries to help you understand how to prevent them. It provides specific steps that you can take to prevent accidents, and it gives you the tools you need to promote safety on the water, including tips for people who have children with them in aquatic settings.

Aquatic Rescue and Safety is ideal as a manual for water rescue training, as a resource for individual aquatic recreation enthusiasts, and as a reference for emergency preparedness. Whether you are simply an avid boater or swimmer or a member of a water rescue team, this book will help you acquire the knowledge and skills to prevent water-related injuries and save lives.

The extra items are numerically indexed and provide extra text to go along with numeric values such as weights or distances or even currencies. The attributes that use these extra indexes are all numeric and take two fields. You can send the data in a single field as long as you use the same short or long text that we keep in our database.

Although the data feed API can deliver information as JSON or XML, we are using XML here because it is easier to read.

<attribute>
   <extra_group>Distance</extra_group>
   <field_name>depth</field_name>
   <extra>
      <id>501</id>
      <extra_short>in</extra_short>
      <extra_long>inches</extra_long>
      <seq>10</seq>
   </extra>
   <extra>
      <id>503</id>
      <extra_short>ft</extra_short>
      <extra_long>feet</extra_long>
      <seq>20</seq>
   </extra>
   <extra>
      <id>505</id>
      <extra_short>yrd</extra_short>
      <extra_long>yards</extra_long>
      <seq>30</seq>
   </extra>
</attribute>

Looking at this example, you can see that the EXTRA portion is an array of values each with their own properties. Here is what each section means:

This extra information is normally used in a drop down box next to the numeric data field that we want to enhance. Some examples might be:

You see we can display the long or short version of the extra code by using the ID index.

Fields that make use of this extra information require it when pushing data back to us in the feed. You can either send the data in two fields (value and extra_id) or in a single field (value) as long as the text following the numeric portion matches the long or short version of the extra data we store for the field.

For example, if you wanted to update a field that represented distance with the value "100 yards", you could either send that data just like that in the value field value=100+yards or in two seperate fields value=100&extra_id=505 and you would get the same results. If you send an invalid extra_id or text after the number that doesn't match our accepted list, your update would be rejected.
