Nursing Diagnosis Hyperthermia r/t infection process Scientific basis: Pyrogens cause a rise in the body temperature,it also acts as an antigen triggering immune system responses. The hypothalamus reacts to raise the set point and the body respond by producing heat

Nursing goal After 2 hours of nursing intervention the patient temperature will lower down to normal levels : Temp.-36.5- 37.5 C

HYPERTHERMIA-NURSING CARE PLAN Assessment Subjective: May manifest: Irritability Weakness Objective: The patient may manifest one or more of the following:

NursingDiagnosis Hyperthermiarelated to inflammatoryprocess/ hypermetabolic state as evidenced by an increase in bodytemperature, warm skinand tachycardia

Planning Short-term:After 30 minutes of nursingintervention the patient will maintain normal core temperature as evidenced by vitalsigns within normal limits and normal WBC level



Temperature above normal level (36 oC) Skin warm to touch Presence of tachycardia (above 160 bpm) Presence of tachypnea (above 60 bpm) WBC elevated
