Today may seem like a really short post, but it is NOT.  Let’s discuss Cold Weather Injuries and their first aid.  I talk about Hypothermia, Frostbite, Frostnip, Trenchfoot, Immersion Foot, Chilblains, and the first aid for them.

¨Extreme cold weather is a dangerous situation that can bring on health emergencies in susceptible people, such as those without shelter, outdoor enthusiasts, and those who in an area that is poorly insulated or without heat.
¨What constitutes cold injury and its effects can vary across different parts of the country. In regions relatively unaccustomed to winter weather, near freezing temperatures are considered factors for “cold injury.” Whenever temperatures drop decidedly below normal and as wind speed increases, heat can more rapidly leave the body. These weather-related conditions may lead to serious health problems.
