Raised core temperature and fever has numerous causes, and has been linked to increased survival in sepsis. However, if heat generation exceeds heat loss and the core temperature rises above that set by the hypothalamus, the individual is at increased risk of short and long-term dysfunction and, in a lot of cases, death. This narrative review outlines the pathophysiology of pyrogenic and non-pyrogenic fever, concentrating primarily on the pathophysiology of non-septic causes.
There have been numerous development and improvements to post-resuscitation care in recent years. The authors of this study investigated trends in patient outcomes and characteristics following admission to ICU in the UK, following cardiopulmonary resuscitation during 2004-2014. They found that risk-adjusted hospital mortality following admission to ICU after cardiac arrest decreased significantly during the period 2004–2014.

We recognise that scientifically sound, high quality manuscripts are often turned away from broad-scope "high-impact" journals based on the issue of "general interest." Critical Care will consider rapid publication of such manuscripts if they are submitted together with the original peer reviewer reports, letter of rejection, and a rebuttal. Please also mention this in your cover letter. Additional peer review may be necessary and the final decision will be made by the Editor.
