Abstract

With the clinical use of cold cardioplegia, or total body hypothermia, it is crucial that critical care physicians and nurses be aware of the electrocardiographic changes related to hypothermia. Similar changes also occur with accidental exposure to cold. We report and discuss a patient who presented with typical electrocardiographic changes upon accidental exposure to cold.
