During this time of year a lot of people are affected by hypothermia and many of them have no idea what hypothermia really is or what its symptoms are. When people feel cold they power through as they think it’s normal and soon enough things get worse.
Hypothermia occurs when your body loses heat more rapidly that it can replace it and people falsely assume that it can only occur during extreme cold weather. Your body functions such as blood flow and heart beat are affected when you are exposed to cold, but you need to figure out when your organs are in real danger. The human body is designed to operate best at 98.6 degrees Fahrenheit and when it goes under 95 degrees F, that’s when you enter hypothermia territory.
