Abstract:

The 24-hour cold water immersion - life raft exposures were conducted in our laboratory test facility involving three subjects in each exposure. Physiologic data were obtained during these exposures to discern the better cold water protective capabilities of two environmental marine diving suits. The Swedish Unisuit proved thermally superior to the Dunlop suit. Several recommendations are made.
