temprature the body
Temprature & the body

37 °C (99 °F)- Normal body

  • 36 °C (97 °F)- Mild to moderate shivering (body temperature may drop this low during sleep). May be a normal body temperature.
  • 35 °C (95 °F)- (Hypothermia) is less than 35 °C (95 °F) - Intense shivering, numbness and bluish/grayness of the skin.
  • 34 °C (93 °F)- Severe shivering, loss of movement of fingers, blueness and confusion. Some behavioral changes may take place.
  • 33 °C (91 °F)- Moderate to severe confusion, sleepiness, depressed reflexes, progressive loss of shivering, slow heart beat, shallow breathing. Shivering may stop. Subject may be unresponsive to certain stimuli.
  • 24–26 °C (75–79 °F) or less- Death usually occurs due to irregular heart beat or respiratory arrest;

Temperature & the body contd.
  • 38 °C (100 °F)- Sweating, feeling very uncomfortable, slightly hungry.
  • 39°C (102.2°F)(Pyrexia) - Severe sweating, flushed and very red. Fast heart rate and breathlessness.
  • 40°C (104°F)- Fainting, dehydration, weakness, vomiting, headache and dizziness may occur as well as profuse sweating.
  • 41°C (105.8°F)- (Medical emergency) - Fainting, vomiting, severe headache, dizziness, confusion, hallucinations, delirium and drowsiness can occur

  • 43°C (109.4°F) - Normally death, or there may be serious brain damage, continuous convulsions and shock. Cardio-respiratory collapse will occur.· 44°C (111.2°F) or more - Almost certainly death will occur; however, patients have been known to survive up to 46.5°C (115.7°F).
