In brief: Depends

Depends on how fast the body core temp drops.
Definition: below 95 degrees: depending on the body temp: between 95-89.6 - poor peripheral circulation, shivering, apathy, lethargy, confusion and rapid heart rate; between 89.6-82.4 - shivering stops, increased confusion or delirium, slowing heart rate and irregular heart rate; below 82.4 coma, ventricular fibrillation (type of cardiac arrest).
