Hypothermia occurs when the body temperature is too low. A person’s body temperature is considered too low at 35 degrees Celsius and can become fatal at 32.2 degrees Celsius and lower. It is dangerous and can be caused by prolonged exposure to a cold or damp environment. Hypothermia will manifest with shivering, decreased mental and motor function, slow breathing, pale and cold skin, lethargy and fatigue. Treatment should be immediate, getting the person out of the cold as soon as possible, removing wet clothes, sharing body heat, warm drinks and IV fluids as well as haemodialysis. It is important to reheat the body slowly.
