Medical Thermometers & Temperature Screening Devices
Medical thermometers and temperature screening devices measure body temperature to help detect infection and illness or monitor treatment and recovery. Oral thermometers are the most commonly used type of thermometer. They provide a baseline of comparison for other temperature-taking methods. Rectal thermometers and ear thermometers give readings that are 0.5°F (0.3°C) to 1°F (0.6°C) higher than oral thermometers. They are primarily used to take the temperature of infants and young children. Noncontact infrared thermometers measure forehead temperature without touching the skin.
Adjunctive Temperature Screening Devices
Adjunctive temperature screening devices take surface skin temperature measurements as part of a multi-step triage process. They provide initial screening prior to secondary evaluation with a noncontact infrared thermometer or clinical thermometer that determines core body temperature. These devices are commonly used in high-traffic areas such as airports, warehouses, and businesses to screen people for elevated temperatures.

Noncontact infrared thermometers measure the forehead temperature of adults and infants without touching the skin. Sometimes called temporal scanners, forehead thermometers read 0.5°F (0.3°C) to 1°F (0.6°C) lower than oral thermometers.

Digital thermometers provide clear numeric readings that are easier to interpret than an analog scale. They use electronic heat sensors or infrared rays to record body temperature.

Thermometer Probe Covers
Thermometer probe covers keep the probes on compatible thermometers clean and help eliminate cross-contamination, especially when the thermometer will be used for multiple patients.
