Moderate hypothermia takes over when the core temperature is in a range from 93� degrees F to 95� degrees F. Shivering slows down. This is because the blood vessels have become so restricted in it's effort to prevent loss through circulation. Movement is very uncomfortable. The victim can appear drunk with slowed slurred speech, poor coordination and a lack of balance. Confusion, apathy, and an inability to make proper decisions set in. As the temperature moves to 93� degrees F breathing may become shallow, drowsiness or a euphoric urge to sleep will start to set in. As above victims of hypothermia are very difficult to deal with. Victims in this state have been known to plead to be left alone and allowed to go to sleep
. You need to ignore these pleas; anyone in this state needs professional medical attention immediately.
