WHAT IS FREEZING?
As a result of the body’s exposure to severe cold (seen below -13 ºC), it causes a variety of symptoms that can lead to gangrene.
WHAT ARE THE STEPS FOR APPLICATION ?
Regional sympathectomy can be performed in 36-72 hours after the event is reported to prevent complications of frostbite. But it’s controversial. Amputation or debridement tissues should not be considered until they are found to be dead. Early debridement is postponed with concern that it may be damaged in living tissues. Because the viability of the underlying tissues cannot be evaluated in III-degree dulls. For this purpose, early fasciotomies are also useful for determining the depth of frost. In deep freezing , then gangrene and tissue defects occur after it is separated from the body. Even if the indication of amputation has been detected, it is useful to wait until this period. These tissue defects are covered by skin grafts, rotational flaps or myokutane flaps according to its depth and anatomical localization.
WHAT ARE THE AREAS FOR APPLICATION ?
This is applied to all body parts.
