Definition of Hypothermia

Definition of Hypothermia, Too long cold, especially in windy and rainy weather, can cause the heating mechanism of the body impaired, causing chronic disease. Hypothermia is a condition where the body was very cold.

Definition of Hypothermia, After the surface of the body's heat is lost there will be a cooling in tissues and organs in the body. Cold, which for too long can cause the body frozen, can constrict blood vessels and cut off the flow of blood to the ear, nose, fingers and toes.

In severe conditions the victim may suffer from gangrene (kemuyuh) and need to be amputated. Cool air is damp with the wind blowing hard, often found the climbers when climbing the mountain. Not infrequently the storms and heavy rains accompanying the cold.

Often make clear night air gets colder and dewy. At the peak of the dry season just around the mountain peaks often arise ice crystals that stick to the leaves and flower edelweiss.

Wet clothes, wet socks increased the chill of the body. The situation will get worse if the climbers do not pay attention to the food so the body does not get the energy to heat the body.

The cold air makes flatulence often so reluctant to eat, unless it runs out of food. Hypothermia is a condition in which we experience penurunanan body core temperature (the temperature of internal organs). Hypothermia can cause swelling throughout the body (Generalized edema), the disappearance of the body's reflexes (areflexia), coma, pupil reaction to the disappearance of the eye. Known severe hypothermia when the body temperature <320C.

To measure the body temperature thermometer measures needed on hypothermia low (low reading thermometer) to 250C. Besides as a symptom, hypothermia can be an early disease that ended in death.
