English term or phrase: Hypothermia
I do not really have any text but the question came up because you quite often use this word for someone whom for example fall into cold water at wintertime. I have now also seen it in an article regarding dehydration and would really like to know the Swedish word so that I get a greater understanding of how and when to use the term "Hypothermia". Thanks for your help. Niclas

hypotermi


Explanation:
Nationalencyklopedin:
hypotermi_ (nylat. hypothermi_a, av¤hypo- och grek. the_rm\ 'värme', 'hetta'), sänkt kroppstemperatur. Hypotermi kan förekomma hos personer som vistats en längre period i kyla; särskilt vid vistelse i kallt vatten uppkommer hypotermi efter kort tid. Medvetslösa personer (t.ex. alkohol- och/eller sömnmedelspåverkade) löper ökad risk för sänkning av kroppstemperaturen. Hypotermi medför minskning av ämnesomsättningen, varför sänkning av kroppstemperaturen (inducerad hypotermi) utnyttjas i behandlingssyfte. Den nedsatta ämnesomsättningen innebär nämligen större tolerans mot kortvarigt upphävd blodförsörjning till ett organ. Den skyddande effekten av djup hypotermi (27 °C eller lägre) används vid vissa hjärtkirurgiska ingrepp samt inom neurokirurgin
