Nursing care plan for hyperthermia (fever)

“Human beings are homeothermic animals and can maintain internal temperatures regardless of the temperature of the external environment. Body tissues and cells can function best in a relatively narrow body temperature range. Body surface and skin body temperature are It changes greatly depending on the external environment and physical exercise. Despite these changes, the temperature inside the body is kept relatively constant unless it is employed by a febrile disease. Must maintain a normal range of body temperature. ” Hyperthermia is a condition in which the balance between heat dissipation and production is lost and body temperature becomes abnormally high. It also refers to a state in which the risk is high.
