About the Course
A fever is defined by most healthcare providers as a temperature of 100.4°F (38°C) and higher when taken rectally. The body has several ways to maintain normal body temperature. The organs involved in helping with temperature regulation include the brain, skin, muscle, and blood vessels. When the child has a fever, the body works the same way to control the temperature. But it has temporarily reset its thermostat at a higher temperature. This module will provide the understanding of temperature measurements and definitions, pathogenesis, prescribing practices in Malaysia and management of pediatric fever.
