When a child starts to get sick, it's not fun. You immediately notice that he does not behave as usual: shows less activity, fusses much, looks tired and often asks you to go to bed. To know exactly what is happening with your kid, it is better to measure his body temperature. Body temperature is one of the vital signs for human beings. An elevated body temperature or fever is a defense mechanism of the body in both children and adults. If it is high, it means that something is wrong and the immune system struggles with something inside the body.
Fever is usually triggered by external pyrogens: substances foreign to the body that have entered the bloodstream. These include infectious pyrogens: viral toxins and metabolic products of microorganisms. Also, the primary group includes non-infectious pyrogens: certain lipids, proteins and protein-containing substances that enter the body from the external environment or arise in the body during inflammatory processes, allergic reactions or the decay of tumor tissues.
The rate of temperature rise depends on the concentration of pyrogens in the blood and can serve as a diagnostic sign. Therefore, the temperature measurement could be a good tool to answer the question “What is wrong with my loved one?” To have such a device at home is a useful habit.
