What could be the best ND for high grade fever?
Is it Ineffecive Thermoregulation, Imbalanced Body Temperature, Alteration in body temperature [ not in NANDA ] ? I am having a hard time ...
I thought at first it was HYPERTHERMIA but hyperthermia occurs when the body is producing heat more than it can dissipate, and the thermoregulation is the hypothalamus is normal.
During viral infection, There is an increase in the thermoregulatory set point due to the endogenous pyrogens or cytokines thus increasing the body temp.
What could be the best diagnosis for this kind of fever?
