This pilot study was designed to verify if sprayed coolant can improve initial cooling management in extensive burns. The cooling effects of one liter sprayed water and five liters poured water (22°C) were tested. Thus n=53 healthy test persons (28 male, 25 female, 20-30 years) were cooled twice (15 minutes long) at the front of their legs (18% TBSA). Thermographic imaging was used to measure the loss of skin temperature and to assess the homogeneity of cooling. The mean decrease of skindoi:10.5282/edoc.8140 fatcat:bhpdh7mbzjdhrcgv2fbont35gi
