How is hypothermia treated?

Hypothermia is treated by getting the person into a warmer environment and removing any wet clothing, followed by steps to warm the person gently. These include using warm, dry compresses, offering warm drinks if the person is alert and able to swallow, avoiding intense heat, and gently warming areas where major arteries are located (groin, chest, neck).
