Emergency blanket also can call first aid blanket, bi-color first aid blanket.
EMERGENCY blankets are included in many emergencies, first aid, and survival kits because they are usually waterproof and windproof. That, along with their low weight and ability to pack into a small space, has made them popular among outdoor enthusiasts and emergency workers. Space blankets are often given to marathoners at the end of races. The material may be used in conjunction with conductive insulation material and may be formed into a bag for use as a bivouac sack (survival bag).
In first aid the blankets are used to prevent/counter hypothermia. A threefold action facilitates this:The airtight foil reduces convection
Heat loss caused by evaporation of perspiration, moisture or blood is minimized by the same mechanism
To a limited extent the reflective surface inhibits losses caused by thermal radiation.
In a hot environment they can be used to provide shade, but using them to wrap a person would be counterproductive, because body heat would get trapped by the airtight foil. This effect would exceed any benefit gained from heat reflection to the outside.
Space blankets are used to reduce heat loss from a person's body, but as they are constructed of PET film, they can be used for other applications for which this material is useful, such as insulating containers.
