Fever: A Brief Overview

Rejuba Pongen [2]

Abstract: This article is an attempt to understand the concept, causes, mechanism, classification, and assessment & management of fever. An essential component of the body's defense against infection is fever. All seven continents are home to the naturally occurring zoonotic disease known as fever. Fever can be classified by its duration as well as the presence or absence of associated symptoms. There are two basic pathways, the hormonal and neural pathways which lead to resetting of the thermoregulatory circuitry. Information from the pyrexia patient is gathered to assess the clinical characteristics of fever. Under proper supervision, the appropriate therapy is given in accordance to manage the fever. This review article will provide a preliminary knowledge about fever for students and scholars. The article looks at the literature that is currently available and demonstrates why fever needs to be considered a global community health issue.
