Emergency Kit Thermometer Adtemp -II
A thermometer is a device used to measure temperature.
A thermometer is used in health care to measure and monitor body temperature. In an office, hospital or other healthcare facilities, it allows a record for a baseline temperature when a patient is admitted. Repeated measurements of temperature are useful to detect deviations from normal levels. Repeated measurements are also useful in monitoring the effectiveness of current medications or other treatments.
The patient’s temperature is recorded to check for pyrexia or monitor the degree of hypothermia present in the body.
A thermometer can use any of several methods to register the temperature. These include mercury, liquid-in-glass, electronic with digital display, infrared or tympanic, and disposable dot matrix. A thermometer can be used in a clinical or emergency setting or at home.
