Hey guys im new to this forum so hope this works!

I am doing a VIVA oral exam for about 25-30 mins. The topic I have chosen is Normothermia.

And I'm slightly confused here...:confused:

I came across the different types of hypothermia:
1) Inadvertent Hypothermia
2) Therapeutic Hypothermia:cool:
3) Induced Hypothermia
4) Accidental Hypothermia

Out of the 4 above I'm assuming Therapeutic and Induced are practically the same. Accidental is when it is unexpected e.g. after trauma, but Inadvertent is where I'm a little off about. Is this similar to Therapeutic? Or is this another deviation on its own?

Thanks guys.:awesome:

Are you talking about physiological effects of hypos/causes/managements of/outcomes?

These seem like fairly arbitrary categories. Not something I've ever come across before.
