Principles of management

1. Diagnose then remove or treat the offending cause. For example, seek and treat infection, stop blood infusion and send discontinued bag to laboratory for analysis, use anti-inflammatory ± immunosuppressive agents for vasculitis.

2. Cooling aids symptomatic recovery, reduces metabolic rate and lowers pressor requirements:

• Increase evaporative losses, e.g. tepid sponging, wet sheets, ice packs

• Increase convective losses, e.g. fanning to improve air circulation

• Antipyretics, e.g. paracetamol, aspirin, chlorpromazine

• More aggressive cooling if temperature >40°C

• Aim to lower temperature to <38.5°C then reassess.
