What temperature is a fever?
What is considered a fever?
A fever occurs when the temperature sensors reset at a high temperature, mainly in response to an infection. To reach the higher temperature, the body produces shivering by moving blood to more internal organs. Person experience the chill due to draining of blood from the surface of the body. Once target temperature is achieved, shivering and chills will be stopped. The body becomes cold by reversing the above mechanism once the infection has been overcome. During this process, the body produces sweat by pumping more blood to the surface and by releasing heat.Fever can be one of an important mechanism of body’s immune system to prevent itself from the growth of harmful bacteria.
Fevers are chiefly caused by viral or bacterial infections like tuberculosis, pneumonia etc, other conditions like allergic reactions; autoimmune diseases like rheumatoid arthritis, ankylosing spondylitis etc; trauma-fracture bone; cancer; excessive exposure to the sun; intense exercise; hormonal imbalances; certain drugs; and damage to the hypothalamus etc.
During the infection, fever-inducing agents pyrogens released, which trigger the resetting of the temperature sensors. A fever is usually diagnosed using a thermometer.
