Aquatic survival skills may be compromised in cold water thereby increasing the likelihood of drowning. This study compared physiological, psychological, and behavioral responses of humans treading water and swimming in cold and temperate water. Thirty‐eight participants were classified as inexperienced (n= 9), recreational (n= 15), or skilled (n= 10) swimmers. They performed 3 tasks: treading water (120 seconds), swim at “comfortable” pace, and swim at “fast” pace in 2 water conditions (28° C vs 10° C). Heart rate, oxygen uptake …
