Hypothermia is a life-threatening condition that refers to a body temperature that’s below 95 degrees Fahrenheit. This happens when your body loses heat faster than it’s being produced. You don’t have to be in an extreme weather condition to experience hypothermia. Sweating in a cold environment or being exposed to windchill are both possible causes.
Someone who experiences hypothermia needs expert care to restore their body temperature and prevent serious complications, such as organ failure. If you or someone with you experiences hypothermia in Goshen, IN, visit Goshen Hospital Emergency Department on 200 High Park Ave. For symptoms or signs of a life-threatening condition, call 911 or visit the emergency room nearest to you.
