Wilderness medical society practice guidelines for the prevention and treatment of lightning injuries.
Wilderness Environ Med. 2012 Sep; 23(3):260-9.WE

Abstract

To provide guidance to clinicians about best practices, the Wilderness Medical Society convened an expert panel to develop evidence-based guidelines for the treatment and prevention of lightning injuries. These guidelines include a review of the epidemiology of lightning strikes and recommendations for the prevention of lightning strikes, along with treatment recommendations organized by organ system. Recommendations are graded based on the quality of supporting evidence according to criteria put forth by the American College of Chest Physicians.
