Yield to it! Yield, and overcome!  minutes,  seconds ( milliliters of oxygen remaining): Already his consciousness has begun to shrink from lack of oxygen, like a globe of light that slowly contracts and dims. His oxygen delivery and carbon dioxide monitoring systems are on red alert. Instead of a rich, oxygenated red, his blood has begun to turn bluish. His heart thumps and his ears ring loudly with its thumping. His thoughts turn slower and slower beneath the water: You’re going to die if you stay here any longer.

Even the warm saline, infused directly into his blood, will add only  kilocalories. Ideally, the doctor would have access to a cardiopulmonary bypass machine, with which he could pump out the victim’s blood, warm and oxygenate it, and pump it back in again, safely raising the core temperature as much as  degree every three minutes.

You knew it had to be close by. The jingling is the sound of the cabin door opening, just through the fir trees. Attempting to stand, you collapse in a tangle of skis and poles. That’s okay. You can crawl. It’s so close. Hours later, or maybe it’s minutes, you realize the cabin still sits beyond the grove of trees.
