Crew Health Advice: Hypothermia
Hypothermia is a condition caused by prolonged exposure to very cold temperatures meaning the body loses heat faster than it can produce it. The textbook definition is that a person is hypothermic when their core body temperature drops below 35 degrees Celsius.
In the below crew health advice, written in collaboration with Red Square Medical, we examine the primary causes of hypothermia, the signs or symptoms to look out for, and how to treat it.
For more information on this advice article or any others form the UK Club do get in touch with our Crew Health Director Sophia Bullard who will be pleased to assist you.
The advice on hypothermia is available to be downloaded below.
