Frank Teasley of Jackson Hole, Wyoming
was in the Iditarod sled dog race in 1999. Frank said he was crossing the burn area (93 miles) and the temperature was -52° with a wind.He was unwilling to stop for fear he would lose his team to freezing. He activated an Ultimate Hot Pack and using a string hung it around his neck. He was then able to continue on to the next check point and was very pleased with the performance of the hot pack. He later said that he used the pack several more times to warm up while sleeping on the trail.
Leonard Stensaas, EMT in Lander, Wyoming
On April 22, 1999 on my way to the Jackson, Wyoming trauma conference I was 6-7 miles above the Brooks Lake area on Togwotee Pass and came upon a 1050 involving a snow plow and passenger car. There were two patients, one had multiple severe injuries. The temperature was around 20° F with a wind chill factor of 5° F. After checking vitals I had a Deputy Sheriff activate a hot pack and placed it on the patient who was very hypothermic and in shock. The Dubois, Wyoming ambulance arrived and used the hot pack again en route to Lander. Both patients survived and recovered from their injuries. The ER doctor in Lander said there were several factors that saved the one patient including the quick application of the Ultimate Hot Pack.
