7 Symptoms of Hypothermia

MansFootinSnowHypothermia occurs when your body temperature is too low. It is most likely to occur at very cold temperatures, but it can occur at cool temperatures of above 40°F if a person becomes chilled from rain, sweat or from being submersed in cold water.

It affects the brain, preventing you from thinking clearly, even moving well. Unable to think, a person with hypothermia cannot react to what’s happening to them.Those most at risk for hypothermia are the elderly who may not have adequate living conditions, particularly access to heated homes; babies who sleep in cold bedrooms; and people who because of work or some other circumstance remain outdoors for long periods. Drinking alcohol or using illicit drugs also puts people at risk.

Hypothermia requires medical care.

Seven Symptoms of Hypothermia:

  • shivering
  • exhaustion
  • confusion
  • slurred speech
  • drowsiness
  • fumbling hands
  • memory loss

Symptoms in Infants:

  • bright red, cold skin
  • very low energy
