PHARM Podcast 24 – Surviving the cold with Professor Gordon Giesbrecht

Professor Popsicle ( Gordon Giesbrecht) -image from Cold Water Boot Camp website

A month or so ago, those Norwegian prehospital doctors on Scancrit.com, wrote an article highlighting research and education by a man, Professor Gordon Giesbrecht aka Professor Popsicle, in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada.

His specialty area is cold water immersion and hypothermia research. It was suggested I record an interview with the good professor himself and so here it is!

SO IF YOU EVER go holidaying in a Scandinavian or Canadian winter…or let alone travel in any part of the world where you may have to survive after an accident in freezing conditions, especially in cold water…LISTEN UP!
