Five rewarming techniques, appropriate for first-aid use in the nonhospital setting, were applied to each of nine subjects whose body temperatures had been lowered to 35 degrees C in a stirred tank of 7.5 degrees C water. The rewarming techniques were: a) inhalation of heated, water-saturated oxygen; b) placement of heating pads over areas of high heat transfer; c) combination of methods a) and b); d) hot whirlpool bath; and e) shivering. Inhalation of heated, water-saturated oxygen was… CONTINUE READING
