Polar Skin CORE cools longer than gel packs

Heat illnesses, such as heat exhaustion and heat stroke, are serious conditions that can occur when the body overheats. They are primarily caused by prolonged exposure to high temperatures or physical exertion in hot weather. In such cases, rapid cooling is crucial. The body needs to shed excess heat to return to a normal temperature and prevent damage to the brain and other vital organs. This is where Polar Skin CORE comes into play.

The Polar Skin CORE’s ability to maintain a colder temperature for a longer period make it an effective tool for rapidly reducing body temperature. Applied to the patient’s body, particularly on areas with large blood vessels close to the skin (like the neck, groin, and armpits) to facilitate faster cooling.

Moreover, the Polar Skin CORE’s larger potential temperature difference (ΔT) and its ability to offload more thermal energy than traditional gel packs could make it more effective in emergency situations where rapid cooling is required.

However, it’s important to note that while Polar Skin CORE aids in the treatment of heat illnesses, they are not a substitute for professional medical attention. Heat illnesses are serious and can be life-threatening, so immediate medical attention is always necessary.
