Health unit provides hypothermia prevention tips

With winter settling in for the next few months, the Sudbury and District Health Unit is reminding people to watch out for hypothermia.  Body parts first affected by hypothermia include the nose, cheeks, fingers, ears and toes.  Hypothermia is the result of the body losing more heat than it generates and in some case is life-threatening.  You can avoid this condition by keep moving, dress in layers and avoid the wind when possible.  Also if you become wet, clothing needs to be removed quickly and the victim needs to be covered with a dry blanket to avoid more heat loss.
