Chicago, Illinois 60611


Purpose:

There are few treatments for central fever (fever that is due to the central nervous system, as opposed to an infectious source). We hypothesize that an externally applied cooling blanket will reduce temperature in neurologically ill patients with central fever.


Criteria:

Inclusion Criteria: - Two or more days with core temperature ≥ 100.4F - Approval of the patient's primary attending physician - Need for core temperature measurement independent of the study. - Admission to the Neuro-ICU for an underlying condition Exclusion Criteria: - Evidence for an infectious cause of fever, such as pneumonia, bacteremia, CNS infection or urinary tract infection. - Expected death from any cause - Known sensitivity to the device - History of pre-admission hypothalamic dysfunction or known temperature dysregulation - Use of 2 or more vasopressor medications, since this may make a local skin reaction to the device more likely - Hemodynamic instability
