THE NEXT GENERATION IN CLINICAL FEVER THERMOMETERS
The Importance of Temperature Monitoring What can temperature tell ? A fever is one of the body's immune responses that attempts to neutralize a bacterial or viral infection. A fever can be caused by many different conditions ranging from benign to potentially serious. Fever is a common symptom of many medical conditions : Infectious diseases, e.g., influenza, HIV, malaria, infectious mononucleosis, or gastroenteritis Various skin inflammations, e.g., boils, or abscess Immunological diseases, e.g., lupus erythematosus, sarcoidosis, inflammatory bowel diseases, Kawasaki disease Tissue destruction, which can occur in hemolysis, surgery, infarction, crush syndrome, rhabdomyolysis, cerebral hemmorrhage,etc. Reaction to incompatible blood products Cancers, most commonly kidney cancer and leukemia and lymphomas Metabolic disorders, e.g., gout or porphyria Thrombo-embolic processes, e.g., pulmonary embolism or deep venous thrombosis
Small change; Big difference. The importance of closely and accurately monitoring body temperature lies in the fact that a fever ; which as described earlier, could be a symptom of a number of different-not so serious or serious conditions- is indicated by a very small change in temperature. A SMALL CHANGE from 102F to 104F- makes a very BIG DIFFERENCE
