Hyperthermia is temperature elevation due to uncontrolled heat generation (e.g. from muscular hyperactivity). This can generate higher temperatures than a fever, with a greater risk of thermal injury to tissues. Unlike fever, hyperthermia involves complete loss of thermal control.

On topics that we are frequently asked for guidance, the following evidence-based recommendations have been developed for use in the healthcare community. Click to read about The MHAUS Recommendation Development Process.   Hyperthermia is often diagnosed on the basis of the events immediately preceding the elevation of core temperature—e.g., heat exposure or treatment with drugs that interfere with thermoregulation. In patients with heat stroke syndromes and in those taking drugs that block sweating, the skin is hot but dry, whereas in fever the skin can be. Hyperthermia in Oncology synthesizes the current research on the topic and provides treatment protocols for using localized as well as whole-body hyperthermia. The differentiating characteristic of this book is the systematic documentation of : Hardcover.

  Hyperthermia comes in many stages. Heat exhaustion, for example, is a common condition. But others, such as heat syncope, may be less familiar to : James Roland. Timing of Hyperthermia. Jefferson, () PMID "Randomized trial of one versus two adjuvant hyperthermia treatments per week in patients with superficial tumours." (Engin K, Int J Hyperthermia. May-Jun;9(3)) Randomized. 41 patients with 44 superficial tumors. Treated with QW vs. BIW HT + RT (mean dose 45 Gy). Hyperthermia: Body temperature elevated above normal range. Hyperthermia is elevated body temperature due to a break in thermoregulation that arises when a body produces or absorbs more heat than it dissipates. It is a sustained core temperature beyond . Symptoms of hyperthermia, or heat-related illness, vary according to the specific type of most severe form of hyperthermia is heat happens when the body is no longer able to regulate its internal temperature; this is a medical emergency.

Several methods of hyperthermia are currently under study, including local, regional, and whole-body hyperthermia (1, 3–9).In local hyperthermia, heat is applied to a small area, such as a tumor, using various techniques that deliver energy to heat the ent types of energy may be used to apply heat, including microwave, radiofrequency, and ultrasound. Additional Physical Format: Online version: Hyperthermia. Glasgow: Blackie, (OCoLC) Online version: Hyperthermia. Glasgow: Blackie, The recognition that there is a definable relationship between the rate of cell killing and temperature led Sapareto and Dewey 11 to propose using this relationship to normalize thermal data from HT treatments. The rationale came from the observations that time-temperature histories vary from patient to patient and that temperatures within tumors were almost always nonuniform, thereby Cited by: 2. Hyperthermia. Human exposure to hyperthermia is usually due to some combination of environmental heat exposure and/or exercise. It is relevant in this context that metabolic heat production (from exercising skeletal muscle) can increase as much as 10 to fold with intense by: 3.
