December 7, 2017
Extreme weather can wreak havoc on your health. Humans can't handle very high and very low temperatures and have to seek shelter indoors, where the temperature can be controlled. Being outside in the heat for a long time can lead to heatstroke, and spending long time in cold temperatures can result in frostbite and hypothermia.
What is hypothermia?
Hypothermia is a condition that makes your body temperature fall dangerously low.
Normal human body temperature is around 98.6 °F. Body temperature lower than 95 °F is considered hypothermic. If it falls below 89.6 °F, it can be fatal.
It’s essential to know what to do and what not to do if someone has hypothermia. You should also know about precautionary measures to help you avoid the condition.
