Accidental hypothermia could be listed as an 'orphan disease,' since mild hypothermia is common but has no severe medical consequences, whereas severe hypothermia is rare and life-threatening. In order to increase our knowledge, find new outcome predictors, and propose better guidelines for the treatment of deep accidental hypothermia victims, we created the International Hypothermia Registry (IHR: https://www.hypothermia-registry.org), which will allow us to gather a large number of cases in order to achieve statistical significance and issue evidence-based recommendations.
