This Special Issue will deal with a multitude of physiological and pathophysiological aspects of accidental and environmental hypothermia and cold injuries. The whole range of adaptations to cold, from the animal to the human, will be covered to elucidate adaptive mechanisms that may open new research and, hence, treatment options. Special attention will be paid to cooling in different environments (e.g., snow and water), insulation, diagnosis of hypothermia, rewarming, and prognostication of outcome after hypothermic cardiac arrest.
