Mysteries and myths about fever in medicine
Play • 32 min

This episode explores fever from its physiology and function to common conceptions (or misconceptions?) about fever.  We dive into how high of a fever is safe, when does a high fever mean serious illness, and do people really run hot (or cold)?  We also use the evidence to answer whether or not vaccine-related fever is a thing and if teething and fever are actually related in children.
