What is low temperature on an adult?
It depends which method that you use to check it, but a core body temp (measured rectally, temporally, or inside the bladder via catheter) is the way that one should confirm a low body temperature. The definition of hypothermia (low body temperature) is a core temp below 950 F. Any temp below this number is defined by the following criteria. Mild hypothermia - Core temperature 32 to 35ºC (90 to 95ºF) Moderate hypothermia - Core temperature 28 to 32ºC (82 to 90ºF) Severe hypothermia - Core temperature below 28ºC (82ºF)

Body temp of 96.8 safe?
That is depending on the age of the person. Children 8 and under should have a body core temperature of 98.6 F and it also depends on how the temp was taken. All body temp's should be taken either oral or rectal. < 4years of age rectal >4 years of age oral. This is the only way to get a correct core body temp. 96.8 F is a little low and if it is a newborn-3 year old child you should check the temp rectally if 96.8 that way warm blankets wrap the infant snugly and recheck temp in 30 minutes, if at that time the temp is still low get your child to a hospital on the double, he/she may be having trouble. For older ages wrap up in a blanket and stay cozy
