Hypothermia in Wilderness Environments

Gordon Gliesbrecht

Accidental hypothermia is a risk for many land- and water-based wilderness activities. During cold exposure, the human body initiates several thermoregulatory mechanisms to prevent, or at least delay, the onset of hypothermia. When these mechanisms are overwhelmed and core temperature decreases, there is a decrease in physical and mental performance, thermoregulatory defenses (e.g., shivering heat production), and eventually failure of various organ systems.

Understanding these responses can help a potential victim avoid becoming hypothermic, and also help a responder to provide safe, effective treatment to a cold patient. This presentation will describe several simple principles for rescue, extraction, and treatment of a cold victim.

Holyrood Road, Edinburgh, United Kingdom

Edinburgh, Scotland’s capital city is uniquely inspirational, not only for its fabled loveliness, but also for its associations – past and present – with innovation, creativity, discovery and progress.

It was here chloroform was first used as an anaesthetic and the founder of penicillin was born. Dolly the sheep was cloned at the University of Edinburgh’s Roslin Institute. The first ‘bionic’ hand – a powered prosthetic with articulating fingers – was developed by a spin-out company from the city’s Princess Margaret Rose Hospital, and the fastest-selling video game of all time – Grand Theft Auto V, by Rockstar North was developed!

Edinburgh has great transport connections too; home to Scotland’s busiest airport which serves 188 destinations worldwide, rail links which run all over the UK, easy access from Scotland’s motorway network and public transport in the city itself is simple with a plentiful supply of buses, trams and taxis.

There’s plenty to do after dark with lots of unique venues to experience a full flavour of Scotland’s culture. We have partnered with Convention Edinburgh and all of our Extreme Medicine delegates will receive the Edinburgh Rewards Card with their conference badge, opening a door to special offers from a selection of bars, restaurants, shops and tour operators.

Our conference venue, Dynamic Earth is a 5 star visitor experience, inviting guests to take a journey through time to witness the story of planet Earth. Dynamic Earth offers synergy within a global health context which match our own sustainable, community minded focus.
