Nursing Care Plan – Fever

The body temperature is controlled by the hypothalamus, a section of the brain that acts just like your household thermostat. That is, if the body gets too cold, the thermostat sends out instructions to warm things up, and if it gets too hot, the thermostat tries to cool things down. When the body is faced with an infection, it responds in a number of ways. In addition to making antibodies that kill the offending germs, it sends various white blood cells to the location of the infection, where they act very much like soldiers at a battle.
