AnnotationHypothermia is not an issue on its own: it needs to be seen in the context of illness and associated functional problems among older people. This article discusses what hypothermia is, who gets it, why they get it, and an approach that may lead to its prevention. A short description is given of its management and or the political ramifications of the problem. (AKM).
