REWARMING STRATEGIES

PASSIVE REWARMING

ACTIVE EXTERNAL REWARMING

NON-INVASIVE CORE REWARMING

INVASIVE CORE REWARMING

Lavage with 42 degree water

COMPLICATIONS

Core temperature afterdrop:  reperfusion of rewarmed cold tissues with recirculation to the the core => avoid peripheral rewarming

Rewarming shock:  peripheral vasodilatation due to rewarming => avoid peripheral rewarming
