Key messages

• Successful management requires early diagnosis and rapid appropriate therapeutic measures in an intensive care unit.

• Raising of the body temperature must be progressive at a speed inversely proportional to the degree of hypothermia, particularly when the temperature is below 30 °C.

• Concurrent hypovolemia aggravates tolerance to blood loss. Transfusion with whole blood is the fastest and most effective treatment for hypotension and anemia, particularly when hematocrit is below 30 per cent.

• Preferred treatment is -thyroxine 500 Mg intravenously on day 1, and then 100 Mg/day.
