AN EXPERIMENTAL EVALUATION OF SELECTED REWARMING THERAPIES FOR THE TREATMENT OF PROFOUND ACCIDENTAL HYPOTHERMIA

This report summarizes the results of rewarming experiments performed with mildly cooled volunteers. Rewarming therapies are studied which can be used for treatment of hypothermia at the rescue site. Other therapies are included in the study to serve as standards of comparison for the "portable" ones. The results are analyzed in the context of expected human responses to arrive at comparative evaluations of the therapies for use in the treatment of "profound" hypothermia.
