No.

And now I'm wondering,... how does the subject of water in the lungs even come up at a helicopter company?

    Rather severe misspelling of "mnemonic." Don't ask me how it started; "pneumonic" is certainly a word, and a kind of plague, but the context was short (six or so letter) names for strain gauge locations like "main gearbox -- port forward foot rosette." The author of one of the flight test reports couldn't spell.

    1. Helicopters are complicated mechanical critters.
    2. Such beasts periodically break.
    3. Other critters, with lungs, are known to fly helicopters over water.
    4. Sometimes, that's where the helicritters break.
    q.e.d.
