The BASICS of Hypothermia: An International Approach

From the 15th to 20th February 2021, every evening join us at 7 pm to 9 pm for evening presentations and an additional afternoon session(12:30 pm – 3:30 pm) on the 20th February 2021 along with Q&A sessions (3:30 pm – 5:30 pm) with subject experts covering topics on pre-hospital accidental hypothermia. Have a question for the panel? The afternoon of 20th February will be saved for an “ask the cold experts” panel discussion.

Our aim:

Evidence shows that individuals suffering from hypothermia can have a positive outcome when they are identified and managed appropriately. How can we turn the anecdotes into predictable and co-ordinated pathways from pre-hospital response to rewarming and offer the best chance of survival to this group? Speakers from around the world come together to share best practice and look at pre-hospital hypothermia and how we can improve patient outcomes.

Please note this week-long virtual conference is free of charge to those who watch it live. The recordings of the conference lectures and Q&A session will be made available to all BASICS Scotland members via the member page.

The virtual conference is aimed at identification, assessment and treatment of hypothermia and related illnesses in the pre-hospital environment. With the goal of increasing awareness, treatment options and pathways for this patient group.

The virtual conference is designed to support any person first on the scene or managing a suspected hypothermia patient in the pre-hospital environment, and will be a multi-disciplinary approach to identification, assessment and treatment.
