Hypothermia Preparation

At Lake Texoma, it can be 70 degrees one day and 30 degrees the next. With these huge temperature swings, it’s important that you pay attention to the temperature on the lake and be prepared in case you or one of your passengers gets hypothermia. Though we may be having an extraordinarily sunny day, the water temperature could still be dangerously low.

If you suspect someone has had unprotected or prolonged exposure to cold temperatures or cold water, check to see if they are showing the following symptoms:

  • Shivering
  • Dizziness
  • Hunger
  • Nausea
  • Faster breathing
  • Trouble speaking
  • Slight confusion
  • Lack of coordination
  • Fatigue
  • Increased heart rate

With hypothermia, it’s important to act quickly. Call our Courtesy Patrol at 903-814-4300 to ensure that the person gets medical treatment right away.

As you move the victim towards medical care, or as you wait for emergency responders, here are a few tips to remember:

  • Be gentle – Limit movements. Excessive movement or jarring can cause cardiac arrest.
  • Move the person out of the cold if possible. If you cannot move the person, cover them with a blanket or coat.
  • Remove wet clothing – remember to be gentle and avoid excess movement.
  • Monitor breathing – if breathing has stopped or appears dangerously shallow, begin CPR.
  • Share body heat – lie down next to the person and cover both of you with a blanket.
  • provide warm beverages – warm, sweet, nonalcoholic or non-caffeinated drinks are best.
  • Warm dry compresses – apply to the neck, armpits, and groin areas only. Do not apply compress to legs or arms, as this can cause a drop in body temperature.
  • Do not apply direct heat – extreme heat can damage the skin or cause irregular heartbeats.

At Highport, we are dedicated to ensuring you have the ultimate lake living experience, and that includes ensuring your safety and the safety of your guests. Program our Courtesy Patrol number into your cell phones for quick and easy access to our team members when you need them: 903-814-4300.
