How is hypothermia treated?

Treatment of hypothermia includes preventing further heat loss and rewarming the person until the core temperature is restored to normal. Re-warming a person with hypothermia can be a dangerous process in itself, especially in more extreme cases. To prevent complications and further damage, a person with hypothermia should be re-warmed in a controlled manner.
