Swimming Guide – Basic Swimming Precautions at Public Pools

Swimming is a great sport and is enjoyed by all age groups, but there are some problems that can be encountered when swimming in the water. This guide takes you through some swimming precautions and how to solve them.

  1. Don’t swim with an illness
    Patients with colds and tympanic membrane perforations should not go swimming pool until they have recovered from their illness. For patients with poor eustachian tube function, it is important to swim with a swallowing motion to ensure that the environment inside the ear cavity is balanced with the outside air pressure.
  2. Clean up water in the ear
    After swimming, it is important to use a cotton swab to wipe up any residual water in the external ear canal to avoid bacterial growth that can lead to otitis externa. If there is a lot of residual water, you may want to ring your head on the side where the water is, and use your hand to gently pull on the auricle so that the water can flow out smoothly.
  3. Correct handling after choking
    When choking, do not pinch both nostrils at the same time and blow your nose, as this will only lead to bacterial invasion.
    The correct way:
    Put the palm of your hand against the ear canal on the side of the water, then plug the ear tightly, then tilt your head to the same side, then quickly remove your hand so that the water can be easily washed out. However, it is advisable to wear earplugs when swimming to prevent water entering your ears.
  4. Cleaning water from the nose
    If you get water in your nose during swimming, you can hold one side of your nose and blow the water out. You can also tilt your head to the same side for 2 to 3 minutes so that the water inside the nasal cavity can flow out as soon as possible.
  5. Warm salt water to wash the nose
    After swimming, many people often have congestion, runny nose, headache symptoms, this time may wish to use warm salt water to wash the nose, can effectively relieve this symptom of occurrence.
