College Answer

A well organised answer would provide details on domains of physiology, pharmacology and 
“other”, such as patient centred effects. Few answers mentioned pharmacology. Providing a 
definition of “mild” was often overlooked but doing so assisted a focused answer. Many answers 
spread beyond “mild” hypothermia or address the “causes” rather than the consequence –
neither of which gained marks as they were not answering the question asked.
