This brief workshop, “Hypothermia: Pathophysiology,” delves into the physiological changes that occur in the body during hypothermia, when the core temperature drops below 35°C (95°F). It covers the body’s initial compensatory mechanisms to preserve heat, the progression to moderate and severe hypothermia, and the effects on the cardiovascular, nervous, and respiratory systems. Participants will learn about the causes, risk factors, and the critical nature of early recognition and intervention to prevent life-threatening complications associated with hypothermia.
