About this book

Introduction

This book uses problem-based learning (PBL) to give an interdisciplinary overview of the concept of fever. Sund-Levander and Grodzinsky approach fever in a broader perspective than is traditionally adopted, considering human thermal responses, the development of thermometry, thermoregulation as influenced by heat transfers and thermal gradients, and the relevance and implications of thermal measures as a diagnostic tool in clinical practice. The book is based on research in the fields of physiology, immunology, laboratory science, nursing care, and metrology, as well as a consideration of groundbreaking technological and scientific developments. To facilitate learning, the authors have included scenarios in the form of realistic situations from clinical practice, to be reflected on from an inter-professional perspective in clinical practice, and in advanced education of health care professionals, laboratory scientists, and technicians.
