We’re very praning when it comes to fever. On the 2nd day of fever, we’re already panicking and rushing to ER. Nakakatakot kaya ang mga komplikasyn na dala ng fever. At the launching of Paracetamol Calpol Go Ginhawa Mom Movement, I have learned a few more about fever.
What is fever? What causes fever?
Fever itself is not scary, it’s very manageable actually. Fever is an increased in temperature in our body. This increase in temperature is controlled by hypothalamus, When our immune system detects a potential trouble it signals the hypothalamus through a biochemical substances. The hypothalamus in return increases the body temperature making it less favorable as a host to reproducing bacteria and viruses. In simpler terms, fever is our body’s way of fighting illnesses.
How To Manage Fever
You manage fever to treat the discomfort experienced by the patient. And when it comes to managing fever, the age of the patient is highly considered. For kids below 1 year old, you need to be very cautious and when the fever lasts for more than 24 hours, you have to bring the child to the doctor. From our experience, a 3 day fever means there is an infection.
When managing fever, you also need to take note of the physical condition of the patient when fever is low. Any signs of wearyness even without fever is a sure sign that you need too see a doctor right away.
Giving Paracetamol to the patient to manage fever should be upon the dosage advised by the doctor.
There are some beliefs and practices in fever management that are considered ineffective. One of these is wrapping the patient in a blanket or dressing up the patient in thick clothing. Para daw gisawan ang pasyente. This can actually cause more discomfort to the patient.
In managing fever, it is providing Ginhawa that matters most and Paracetamol Calpol is committed in helping us provide that kind of ginhawa to our kids.
