I had a pt this week that kept having a body temp of 95.0. She also had a lot of pitting edema. Are these related? I'm a tech and learning. I informed the nurse but it took 11 hours before she called the dr and got a diuretic for her. I guess when I told her how much the pt had gained weight wise she got the hint. I had already told her about her outputs... they were low. She was holding onto all the fluid. Anyway, i was wondering if this has something to do with our body temp? Like if it has to work harder to keep all the excess fluid at body temp? She was freezing to the touch. Also, do obese people have higher or lower body temps? Maybe body has to work harder so its putting out more heat? or is it related? Thanks for listening to me ramble..hopefully someone can help me out.
