Article on hypothermia at Virginia rescue

Postby Stridergdm » Nov 9, 2012 2:27 pm

Decent article on hypothermia at a cave rescue.

One thing I don't see in it is how much food/water the patient was given.

But I think this illustrates why we stress so much that Hypothermia is a huge issue in cave rescue.
