[Intensive therapy in high fever in young children at the prehospital stage].

[Article in Russian]


It has been shown that in the most severe cases of high fever children with encephalopathy and epileptic syndrome should be treated with droperidol. The clinical signs of circulation centralization in such cases are as follows: marble skin, disturbed consciousness, elevated BP, increased difference between rectal and axillary temperature. High fever was more favourable in children without concomitant diseases and with moderately expressed signs of circulation centralization (pale skin and cool extremities).
