Clinical mercury free thermometer RELIABLE METHODS TO MEASURE TEMPERATURE:
Doctors prefer to take a temperature using oral measurement, since this method provides quick and accurate results. The thermometer bulb (probe) is to be placed underneath
the tongue to the left or right of the root in one of the two sublingual pockets. A normal temperature by this method is usually considered 37 °C (measurement period 5 minutes).
The rectal method is the preferred way to measure the temperature of children. To this end, the thermometer bulb (probe) is inserted into the anus (approx. 2 cm). For easy and comfortable insertion you may want to dab some skin crime or baby oil on the tip of the thermometer. STOP if you meet any resistance. A normal temperature by this method is usually considered about 37.6 °C.
If rectal temperature is recommended by your doctor, you may use a probe cover. Insert thermometer into the probe shield. Lubricate the probe cover with a water soluble jelly for easier insertion. Do not use petroleum jelly. Insert tip of probe no more than 1,5 cm (1/2 inch) into rectum (measurement period 5 minutes).
Use a soft dry cloth to dry the armpit. Place the tip of the thermometer in the armpit and have the patient keep his or her arm held tight to the body. A normal temperature by this method is usually considered about 36.7 °C (measurement period 5 minutes).
