Hyperthermia is defined as an elevated body temperature due to failed thermoregulation. It can occur under physiological conditions such as intense exercise or due to pathology such as malignant hyperthermia and heat stroke. It has also been implicated as a cause for sudden infant death syndrome. High temperatures are also used in medical interventions… CONTINUE READING
