Article Excerpts About Symptoms of Hypothermia:

Accidental Hypothermia -- Age Page -- Health Information: NIA (Excerpt)

Hypothermia is marked by unusually low body temperatures, below 96° F (35.5° C) - well below the body’s normal temperature of 98.6° F (37° C). What may seem like a mere couple of degrees can have a devastating effect. Severe hypothermia can cause an irregular heartbeat leading to heart failure and death.

Accidental Hypothermia -- Age Page -- Health Information: NIA (Excerpt)

How can you tell if someone has hypothermia? If a person says he or she is unusually cold, check their temperature with a thermometer. Older people may be reluctant to complain, or are unaware of how serious the cold can be. Look for these signs of hypothermia:

  • Confusion or sleepiness
  • Slowed, slurred speech, or shallow breathing
  • Weak pulse; low blood pressure
  • A change in behavior during cold weather or a change in the way a person looks
  • Excess shivering or no shivering; stiffness in the arms or legs
  • Chilly rooms or other signs that the person has been in a cold place
  • Poor control over body movements or slow reactions
