treating central fever in TBI

  1. 0
    Do you have any special ways of treating central fever in TBI patients? Blood+brain=fever

    We culture the patient a few times, and use tylenol and ibuprofen with alcohol baths, ice packs, fans, and cooling blankets.

    But I've heard of drugs out there that treat central fever - anyone use one?

    Thanks!

    There is a drug used to treat malignant hyperpyrexia-dantrolene. MH is usually (always?) as a result of anasthesia and is due to an inherited condition.

    Dantrolene is not effective in neurogenic fever. It is great for malignant hyperthermia r/t anesthesia and neuroleptic malignant syndrome.
