Hello! With your question, I would like to share the following:
Body temperature: Body temperature is the body temperature, which varies depending on the region of the body.
1. Central body temperature The temperature in the deep areas of the body, which is the temperature that directly affects the rate at which biological reactions occur in the body, is the basis of thermoregulatory activity and has little change. change according to the temperature of the environment. Central body temperature is usually measured in three locations:
In the rectum: the most constant, under normal conditions it ranges from 36.3 to 37.1 degrees Celsius. In the mouth: lower than in the rectum 0, 2 - 0.6 degrees Celsius. In the armpit: 0.5 - 1 degree Celsius lower than in the rectum, fluctuating much but convenient to monitor the patient's temperature. 2. Peripheral body temperature Peripheral body temperature Peripheral body temperature is the temperature in the skin, which is more influenced by the ambient temperature. Peripheral body temperature also changes according to the measurement location:
In the forehead: an average of 33.5 degrees C. In the palm of the hand: 32 degrees C. In the instep: 28 degrees C. Fever is a state of hyperthermia due to a disorder of the temperature regulation center, under the influence of harmful factors, usually weakness. infectious factor; is a systemic adaptive response of warm-blooded animals and humans.
Clinically, fever is a condition in which the patient's body temperature rises above normal (above 37 degrees Celsius measured rectally; over 38 degrees Celsius measured in the armpit).
