    Hi everyone.

    Nor had I until I had done this course. It is a great thing to use when in the hills or generally anywhere you are going to be cold after the medic has exposed you to find injury.
    When we were getting higher up and the temp was dropping you wanted to be the patient in the scenarios as the main thing after the primary survey and life support was to get you in the wrap. Then you could have 20 min of getting warm while they did a de breif of the scenario.
