2. Lack of coordination
Coordination requires the brain, nerves and muscles to work together smoothly. However, a lack of muscle coordination or poor limb coordination may become apparent in individuals suffering from hypothermia.
When body temperatures are in the normal range, resulting body movements are also smooth, coordinated and seamless. However, when body temperatures drop increasingly, the communication between the brain and other parts of the body becomes disrupted and movements may become sudden, unsteady and jerky. These symptoms can reflect abnormally low body temperature, or hypothermia.
