  1. thermic fever

    Hyperthermia, also known simply as overheating, is a condition in which an individual's body temperature is elevated beyond normal due to failed thermoregulation. The person's body produces or absorbs more heat than it dissipates. When extreme temperature elevation occurs, it becomes a medical emergency requiring immediate treatment to prevent disability or death. Almost half a million deaths are recorded every year from hyperthermia.The most common causes include heat stroke and adverse reactions to drugs. Heat stroke is an acute temperature elevation caused by exposure to excessive heat, or combination of heat and humidity, that overwhelms the heat-regulating mechanisms of the body. The latter is a relatively rare side effect of many drugs, particularly those that affect the central nervous system. Malignant hyperthermia is a rare complication of some types of general anesthesia. Hyperthermia can also be caused by a traumatic brain injury.Hyperthermia differs from fever in that the body's temperature set point remains unchanged. The opposite is hypothermia, which occurs when the temperature drops below that required to maintain normal metabolism. The term is from Greek ὑπέρ, hyper, meaning "above", and θέρμος, thermos, meaning "heat".

    Thermic fever, also referred to as heat fever, is a condition characterized by an unusually high body temperature caused by prolonged exposure to excessive heat or high temperatures. This condition, often classified as a type of hyperthermia, is most commonly experienced during heat waves or in extremely hot working conditions. Symptoms can include dizziness, nausea, headache, rapid pulse, and in severe cases, loss of consciousness or convulsions. It's crucial to treat heat fever immediately to prevent further complications such as heat stroke.
