  • Abnormalities in body temperature (that is, fever and hypothermia) are common (14). Such abnormalities are components of diagnostic criteria for certain disorders (58), influence clinical management decisions (9, 10), and are associated with increased mortality in certain patient populations (11, 12). For most adult and pediatric populations, fever is defined as a body temperature of 38.0C or higher (1315); this definition can vary according to certain patient characteristics (for example… CONTINUE READING
