Hypothermia, if not treated swiftly, can be fatal. When exposed to extreme cold weather conditions the chances of developing hypothermia are very high andexposure often occurs in remote, difficult to reach locations. Last year, over 25% of all casualties rescued by the RNLI (Royal National Lifeboat Institute) from UK
waters were suffering from hypothermia. Currently the most efficient treatments are found in hospital and only passive external treatments, for example, blankets are available for use at the rescue location. The Samoyed Hypothermia Suit effectively treats hypothermia with active external rewarming at the point of rescue. The Sammy Suit uses chemical heat packs that are easily activated providing a safe rewarming heat source that helps stabilise and increase the body temperature thus giving the casualty a better chance of survival.
