Hypothermia

Hypothermia is extremely dangerous and can be fatal if it is not dealt with quickly.

Warning signs of hypothermia include: shivering, slurred speech or mumbling, slow shallow breathing and heartbeat; clumsiness, low energy or drowsiness.

If you see someone with signs of mild to severe hypothermia: 

  • Get medical attention as soon as possible
  • Move the person inside and take off any wet clothing
  • Add blankets, pillows, towels or newspapers beneath and around the person
  • Handle the person gently to avoid cardiac arrest.
