Fever Causes Death?
In the afternoon, I still do not understand about the fever that causes death. I actually already have a thought that fever is only a symptom, but why can someone die of fever? Please clarify again about the fever that causes this death
Hello Ms.Nisa farid thank you for consulting us on HealthReplies.com. Basically, fever is not a disease but just a symptom, where the infection that occurs causes the appearance of fever symptoms that result from a reaction in the body in the process of defending itself from infection. Indeed, not all fever is caused by infection, there is also a fever caused by other conditions such as hyperthyroidism, arthritis, or side effects from the use of certain drugs.
What causes complications to the point of death is actually not the fever, but the disease that causes the fever, and also the complications of the fever that are not handled properly. Complications of fever that can cause a person to die generally is severe dehydration which affects the circulation of blood to the body, where if this happens then the important organs of the body will fail to function and function will be disrupted, as a result will worsen the state of pain and will also impact on the heart and brain which is very influential and causes death. Apart from fever complications, the underlying disease also has an important role, for example in the case of sepsis or blood poisoning, this bad thing will make all important organs in the body fail to function, the body is in a state of shock and ultimately difficult to help if the treatment obtained is too late and did not rule out the possibility of causing sufferers to die.
From our explanation, I hope you understand that what causes a person to die in a particular disease case is not the fever, but the condition resulting from a fever that is not handled properly, and the underlying disease. Thus we can convey, hopefully our information can be useful for you. thanks.
