Wilderness Medical Society Frostbite Treatment Practice Guidelines (June 2011)

Wilderness Medical Society Frostbite Treatment Practice Guidelines

It's summer somewhere; snowing in the Wind Rivers today.

The Wilderness Medical Society has released the second in a series of consensus practice guidelines on topics in wilderness medicine. This paper, guidelines for the prevention and treatment of frostbite, is the work of an expert panel convened at the 2010 Annual Winter Meeting of the WMS in Park City, Utah. The paper addresses both field and hospital treatment, describes the quality of evidence supporting the recommendations and the risk/benefit questions.

The paper is available at http://www.wemjournal.org/article/S1080-6032%2811%2900077-9/fulltext.
