Did You Know?

Managing hypothermia

Hypothermia is caused by a sudden or gradual drop in core body temperature. This is usually due to extremely cold temperatures or loss of the body’s temperature regulating abilities. If not managed adequately and immediately, it can cause shock and multi-organ failure. First aid rescuers should remember these quick management tips for hypothermia:

  • Move the victim out of the cold, preferably indoors where it is warm.
  • Change the person’s clothing, as ice that is frozen on clothes will soon melt.
  • Warm the victim’s torso first. Warming the extremities first can cause cold blood to rapidly circulate to the major organs in the torso and cause shock.
  • Cover victim with a blanket or additional clothing.
  • DO NOT immerse victim in warm water. This can cause heart palpitations.
