Abstract

Accidental hypothermia is a condition associated with significant morbidity and mortality. A 48-year-old male with a history of alcohol use disorder and optic neuropathy presented to the emergency department after being found unresponsive with an unknown downtime. One hundred four minutes passed from resuscitation, to pre-hospital discovery, until cannulation with extracorporeal membrane oxygenation. Here, a rare case of successful resuscitation of a profoundly hypothermic patient to normal neurologic outcome is presented.
