DOC: HYPOTHERMIA - CLINICAL PRACTICE GUIDELINES


Acute hypothermia (immersion hypothermia). This occurs when a person loses heat very rapidly e.g. by falling into cold water. It is often associated with near-drowning. Inquiry should be made as to why the person is in the water as an injury or illness may have caused them to fall. Acute hypothermia may also occur in a snow avalanche when it may be associated with asphyxia.... Document/File: .pdf, filesize: n/a. Filetype: pdf. Filename: hypothermia-clinical-practice-guidelines.
