Hypothermia to 9 to 15�C was induced in 15 dogs using a pump oxygenator and heat exchange unit. No significant alterations in electrolytes or blood gases developed. Oxygen consumption continued at about 6 per cent of the based needs at 10�C by virtue of the physically dissolved plasma oxygen. These studies suggest that, since a basal metabolism continues even at 10�C, complete cessation of the circulation at such a temperature is inadvisable and that hypoxia of vital organs may explain the difficulty in restoring and maintaining the circulation after such circulatory arrest.

    Environmental factors such as outside temperature at the time of death are very important for forensic diagnoses and police investigations. In particular, death in a cold environment is associated with factors of forensic interest, including hypothermia, drowning in cold water, or postmortem...
