... In particular, PCM packs with a latent phase of 15 °C (Glacier Tek USDA BioPreferred PureTemp PCM, Plymouth, MN, USA) can be safely administered for durations of 3 (Brownstein et al. 2019;Clifford et al. 2018;Kwiecien et al. 2019Kwiecien et al. , 2021Mullaney et al. 2021) to 6 (Kwiecien et al. 2018;Kwiecien et al. 2020b) h at a time in one dose.
