First Aid tip of the month

Hypothermia is a condition that occurs when someone’s body temperature drops below 35°C (95°F). Normal body temperature is around 37°C (98. 6°F). Hypothermia can become life-threatening quickly, so it’s important to treat someone with hypothermia straight away.

 signs and symptoms include of Hypothermia:

  • shivering, cold and pale with dry skin  

  • unusually tired, confused and have irrational behaviour

  • reduced level of response

  • slow and shallow breathing 

  • slow and weakening pulse.


Treating hypothermia outdoors

  • If the casualty is outside, try to get them indoors. If you are unable to get them indoors, try to take them to a sheltered place as quickly as possible, shielding the casualty from the wind.

  • Remove and replace any wet clothing and make sure their head is covered.

  • Do not give them your clothes - it is important for you to stay warm yourself.

  • Try to protect the casualty from the ground. Lay them on a thick layer of dry, insulating material such as pine branches, heather, or bracken. If possible put them in a dry sleeping bag and/or cover them with blankets. If available, wrap them in a foil survival blanket. You can use your body to shelter them and keep them warm.

  • Call for emergency help (263 774 452 233).

  • Do not leave the casualty alone. Somebody must be with them at all times. If you are in a remote area and cannot call for emergency help, send two people to get help together.

  • If the casualty is fully alert, offer them warm drinks and high energy food such as chocolate.

  • Monitor their breathing, level of response and temperature while waiting for help to arrive.

Treating hypothermia indoors:

  • If you are indoors, cover the casualty with layers of blankets and warm the room to about 25°C (77°F).

    • Do not place any direct heat such as hot water bottles or fires near a casualty as they may cause burns.

  • Give them something warm to drink, like soup, and/or high-energy food, like chocolate.

    • Do not give the casualty alcohol in an attempt to warm them, it will make hypothermia worse.

  • Seek medical advice. Hypothermia could be disguising a more serious illness such as a strokeheart attack or an underactive thyroid gland.

  • Monitor their breathing, level of response and temperature until they recover.
