Nice site.It is very informative.I think hypothermia will be a problem for those who engage in out door sports under extreme weather. Learn how to detect the signs of Hypothermia and how to treat it.

Thanks, John. Not too many seniors engage in outdoor sports in extreme weather--many of us are just trying to stay warm enough indoors! We want people to realize that older people especially can suffer hypothermia just from sitting in a cool room, say 62 degrees F. They don't necessarily realize they are cold nor do they necessarily shiver.

So yes, knowing the signs of hypothermia is important for everyone. If a person's temperature drops below 96 degrees F., EMERGENCY help is needed. If you have a 911 system, call it for that person.
