Ch. 2: Frostbite and Trenchfoot
Modern medicine has found that rapid rewarming is the way to go. A reference, if you're interested, is here, under "treatment."
It's an interesting question whether they would have done it that way in ME - I'd guess you could successfully write it either way. There were people in the past who advocated rubbing the frostbitten part with snow (a terrible idea!).
