Avoiding Hypothermia and Frostbite With A Cell Phone

Dr. Carol Cunningham is Medical Director of Ohio Emergency Medical Services.  She lives in the heart of the snow belt, Kirtland, Ohio and works for Akron General Health System.

With the coldest temperatures in years gripping Northeast Ohio, Dr. Cunningham offers advice on avoiding hypothermia and frostbite, and tips on how to treat cold weather-related maladies.  She advises everyone, especially the elderly to carry some kind of communication device outdoors, even when performing seemingly innocuous tasks.

With subzero temperatures, it takes no time at all to fall victim to the cold.
