This episode is on hyperthermia- just in time for the warmer weather. However, hyperthermia has many different causes so this episode will review them all. Dr. Andrea Sarchi wrote this script which was recorded by Jacob Schriner, MS-3 at Emory University School of Medicine. This episode will review the necessary history and physical exam findings, ordering the right labs and tests, and how to treat this condition to ensure the best patient outcomes.
