|Condition or disease|
Hypothermia is a common finding in severely traumatized patients. Decreases in core temperature during the course of initial evaluation and resuscitation are common, and can contribute to poor outcomes in multi-traumatized patients.
In this study the temperature will be recorded continually with multiple skin probes and an ear-probe from the site of the accident to arrival in the intensive care unit (including time in primary surgery, if any).
