YouTube video about a case of SIPE (swimming induced pulmonary edema) during the Rottnest Channel swim. Although SIPE is uncommon this is useful viewing for swimmers and their crew. It's still not clear what causes SIPE. The symptoms are shortness of breath, beyond what would be expected during a long swim, tiredness and coughing with frothy sputum. The treatment is to remove the swimmer from the water and keep them warm and sitting upright (lying the swimmer down will worsen their symptoms). The swimmer should be taken to hospital where their condition can be assessed. Watch the video.
