The historical perspective of survival from sinking vessels is dealt with, including the experience gained during World War 2. Hypothermia, perhaps the main cause of death, is discussed as well as methods to prevent it and treat it. Seasickness with the accompanying loss of fluids resulting in dehydration is dealt with, and a note is included on drugs to prevent it. Starvation and the psychology of survival are then considered. Order from: NSFI as No. 14762.
