Author: Jassin M. Jouria, MD
(Click author's name for bio)

Duration: 4 hours

Course Summary

When the human body becomes too cold to spontaneously re-warm itself through normal metabolic procedures, hypothermia occurs. Hypothermia can range from mild to severe and its symptoms include mental confusion, slow heart rate, and even death. Since an extreme low core body temperature can suppress heart and brain function, hypothermia treatment protocols vary from the treatment of other heart- and brain-related incidents. This course, Part 1 of 2, provides a detailed explanation of hypothermia and explains field treatment protocol. This course will provide advanced learning for nurses interested in hypothermia and critical interventions to support survival.
