# Vagal Inhibition

posted by .

Ref my previous question.

The term was used recently on a Sea Survival course I attended. The suggestion was that when a person entered cold water having jumped from a ship and inhaled the cold water due to involuntary gasping reflex they could then succum to vagal inhibition.

Thank you

Mike
