Surviving severe hypothermia

Severe hypothermia, i.e. a body temperature of less than 24 degrees Celsius, is often deadly. Affected people are unconscious, suffer from respiratory and cardiac arrest and do not show any signs of life.

On 6 April 2017 in Poland, a woman was found being unresponsive, without a pulse and with a body temperature of 20.6 degrees Celsius. In addition to the standard resuscitation measures, the rescuers used the EASY PULSE for automatic cardiac massage. Luckily, the woman survived and regained consciousness after two days.
