Hypothermia is a danger for those who live, work, or vacation in cold climates and for those who live in poverty right on our doorstep. It can strike hard and rough, but it can also be cunning and devious. This book, written by a group of people who have been studying the intricacies of hypothermia for years, including physicians, paramedics, and mountain rescuers, presents ways of treating hypothermia. It discusses new methods of efficient and safe rewarming, demonstrating how early diagnosis, identification of risk factors, and qualification of patients for extracorporeal life support enable more effective treatment.
