Divers and aviators downed in the ocean require warming to prevent excessive loss of body heat. A combination of chemical heating and fabric insulation was evaluated for this purpose. Chemical heating results from the programmed heat of solution of an inexpensive cream in water. Less than 25 pounds per hour for the aviator and 5 pounds per hour for the wet-suit diver will probably be required to prevent excessive loss of body heat. Author
