noun - Rewarming is the restoration of normal body temperature in the management of cases of hypothermia. Several methods are used: (1) passive, which relies on retention of basal heat, (2) active, which employs a heat source externally or internally ('core') with lavage, irrigation, dialysis or extracorporeal blood heating.
