Fever, also known as fever in medical terms. Fever can support the immune system against infectious agents and prevent temperature sensitive viruses and bacteria from replicating smoothly in the human body. However, infection is not the only cause of fever. For example, both amphetamine abuse and abstinence can lead to a rise in body temperature. Environmental stress can also cause heatstroke and related diseases. The hypothalamus, located at the bottom of the brain, is equivalent to a human thermostat. It is stimulated by a mobile biochemical substance called pyrogen, which starts from a potential lesion identified by the immune system and flows through the blood. Human tissues produce some pyrogens, and many pathogens produce some pyrogens. Once a pyrogen is found in the hypothalamus, it will tell the body to strengthen metabolism and produce more calories; And reduce the surrounding blood flow to maintain this heat, which leads to fever. In general, children have more severe and easier fevers, reflecting the impact of pathogens on the untested immune system. Sometimes, fever can be serious enough to affect your health. For example, a fever of more than 105 degrees Fahrenheit can threaten the integrity and function of important proteins. Cell stress, infarction (heart attack), tissue necrosis, spasm and insanity are all potential adverse consequences. If the degree of fever exceeds the body's own cooling capacity, the use of "cool blanket" and other methods are beneficial.
