Hypothermia may seem like a scary thing that can only hurt you, well, that is not true. Hypothermia can help the human body in multiple ways. In fact, some people would have drowned but they were saved when their metabolic system slowed down, which meant they did not need as breath as much as normal preventing them from drowning because of hypothermia. Doctors can even artificially created during surgery to slow down the metabolic process (Even bears use hypothermia to hibernate) (13). Hypothermia is also hard to spot and treat. In fact, some victims may appear dead, although they are still alive(15). You also have to be careful because if you warm a victim too fast they could die(16). At a certain body temperature you get so cold that you stop shivering(14). A symptom that can cause more stress, is a victim’s blood vessels could dilate, causing…

  • Nazi Medical Experiments

    prisoners of war (Berger). These men were then subjected to being submerged in a tank filled with iced water where the body would go into a state of hypothermia.

The difference of birds and mammals is the time of day their body is at rest. At…

  • Research Paper On Hypothermia

    Merriam-Webster defines hypothermia as a condition in which the temperature of the body is very low. This condition is a medical emergency that occurs when the body loses more heat than what it is able to produce; hence, the body temperature decreases. The part of the brain called the hypothalamus is responsible for controlling body temperature; therefore, hypothermia is the result of the dysfunction of the hypothalamus. In order for a person to become hypothermic, their body temperature must be…
