What is hypothermia?

Most people do not associate hypothermia with Southern California Climate, however with the cooler winter temperatures and the increased potential of rainfall due to winter storms many people that are exposed to cool wet conditions for extended periods of time are highly susceptible to hypothermia.

  • Hypothermia is caused by prolonged exposure to very cold temperatures. When exposed to cold temperatures, your body begins to lose heat faster than it’s produced. Lengthy exposures will eventually use up your body’s stored energy, which leads to lower body temperature.
  • Body temperature that is too low affects the brain, making the victim unable to think clearly or move well. This makes hypothermia especially dangerous, because a person may not know that it’s happening and won’t be able to do anything about it.
  • While hypothermia is most likely at very cold temperatures, it can occur even at cool temperatures (above 40°F) if a person becomes chilled from rain, sweat, or submersion in cold water.
