This report summarizes medical and scientific aspects of the general literature debate over rapid versus slow rewarming and selected specific rewarming approaches. The specific approaches were selected largely on the basis of being difficult to evaluate with in vivo experiments with human subjects. Findings in basic medical literature, research reports and clinical medical literature are analyzed leading to recommendations of the suitability of each specific therapy for use as a first-aid treatment in the field.
