Hypothermia- Osborn Waves, Bradycardia, Shivering Artifact

Description

A homeless patient in the Southern United States was found down in the community and brought in and found to be hypothermic. Rectal temperature was 87 degrees Fahrenheit (30.5 C). The patient was encephalopathic, hypotensive and bradycardic with heart rate in the forties.
