I love journals and abstracts, so on care city we feature abstracts and journals and we always include links to direct you to where you can get full information.
This week we will feature an abstract from the Nurse Practitioner e-journal, discussing the Noninfectious Causes of fever in adults.
It’s highly informative and educating, try visiting the full article if you need more information.
Fever is both a common presenting symptom and sign identified during routine patient care in a variety of clinical settings. In the outpatient and hospital settings, fever may be observed in up to 30% to 50% of patients, with the highest incidence among those admitted to critical care, which may be the results of many etiologies. Fever is also a common complaint in the primary care setting, with approximately one-third of ambulatory care patients reporting fever to their primary care provider (PCP).
