Fever is a common problem in the critically ill that is often treated by nurses. Decisions regarding treatment of fever would be more informed if based upon research related to fever. The authors, in this article, present an individual adaptation framework for conceptualizing the components of the febrile state important to practice, and review some of the existing research related to development, assessment, and treatment of fever.
