Knowledge that empowers

OMRON is renowned for designing advanced monitors for use by medical professionals in clinics and hospitals. But we believe prevention is more effective than any treatment.

What You Need To Know About Fevers

Fever defined and the causes:

A fever is when the body’s temperature is higher than normal due to an infection. The fever is usually caused by a virus or bacteria. It is a way in which the body fights infection. A fever is not dangerous, and does not always mean that a person has a serious illness.


The prevailing idea seems to be that high fevers cause brain damage. This is essentially untrue. The truth is that the brain is able to act like a thermostat and keep the temperature from going beyond a safe range; i.e. about 106.2 degrees. The only exceptions are devastating infections of the brain itself, as in bacterial meningitis, most of which are now prevented by immunization. Use a thermometer as a guide for temperature measurement. Usually, the infection is caused by a virus, and antibiotics do not help viral infections. If the infection is bacterial it can be treated with antibiotics prescribed by your doctor. While waiting for the medication to take effect, the temperature can be brought down by warm water baths; cold water or ice water is not recommended as they can cause the blood vessels in the skin to constrict, and decrease the body’s ability to get rid of extra heat. Also, cold or chilly water will cause a child to shiver, which will increase the body’s internal heat.

Additionally, you should do the following to provide extra comfort:
  • Drink plenty of clear fluid.
  • Dress as lightly as possible
  • Keep the child cool.
  • Never use alcohol
Additional helpful hints:
  • Ibuprofen (Advil, Motrin) is gradually replacing acetaminophen(Tylenol) as the medication of choice because it lasts longer and is anti-inflammatory as well.
  • Aspirin is NOT recommended for children under 18 years of age due to the risk of Reyes syndrome, a liver disorder associated with the use of aspirin and certain viral infections
  • When in doubt, call your pediatrician or doctor.
