He has authored chapters concerning primary and secondary hypothermia. Current studies have investigated local cooling systems used to minimize pain after surgery which play a major role in producing non freezing cold injury which is distinct from frostbite. Dr. Pozos established the hypothermia laboratory at University of Minnesota-Duluth School of Medicine where he was a professor of physiology and subsequently was one of the chief civilian scientists at Naval Health Research Center in San Diego where he evaluated the thermal effectiveness of military garb for combat operations. Dr. Pozos is currently professor of biology at San Diego State University.
