What is hypothermia?

Hypothermia occurs when your body’s temperature reaches an extremely low point — below 95 F (35 C).

In some very rare, severe cases, if a person has been exposed to the cold long enough, they may require emergency attention directly at the scene. However, in most cases, low-grade hypothermia can be effectively treated by medical professionals at a nearby clinic or hospital emergency room.

Hypothermia Symptoms

  • Shivering

  • Dizziness

  • Hunger

  • Nausea

  • Faster breathing, increased heart rate

  • Slow, shallow breathing

  • Trouble speaking, slurred or mumbled speech

  • Slight confusion

  • Loss of coordination

  • Fatigue or drowsiness
