  • Frostbite & Other Cold Weather-Related Injuries - MedicineNet
    Cold weather-related injuries can be divided into two general categories. These are those that occur without the freezing of body tissue (chilblains and trench foot) and those that occur with the freezing of body tissue (frostbite).

  • Protection of Children from Injury Due to Cold Weather
    Children are more prone to develop hypothermia (lowered body temperature) when the body’s rate of heat loss is greater than the rate of producing heat. Children also have a relatively larger body surface area that contributes to more rapid heat loss.

  • Cold Injuries Hypothermia and Frostbite
    Cold injuries are usually due to prolonged exposure to cold temperatures, although they can occur with brief exposure to extremely cold conditions. They occur because our body's ability to generate heat and to limit heat loss is quite limited.
