Risk of burns during active external rewarming for accidental hypothermia

from Wilderness & Environmental Medicine

We conclude that active external rewarming of the trunk of a cold patient in the field can be administered safely and burn risk reduced if 1) manufacturer instructions are followed; 2) insulation is placed between the skin the and heat source; and 3) caregivers make regular efforts to observe heated skin for possible pending burn injury. more
