Cold Card

The Wilderness Medical Society have published a free ‘cut out and keep’-style double sided card, summarising the key elements of hypothermia evaluation and field care for laypersons, trained rescuers and first responders. The full text paper explains its design and evolution, alongside high-resolution printable images of the card. We thought the card might be usefully distributed to participants on our next winter expedition.
