Thermometers are designed to measure body temperature. They have a temperature sensor that shows change in the temperature. This change in temperature is recorded and converted into a numerical number. Thermometers are very easy to use and provide accurate results. There are different types of scientific thermometers available at Health Products For You, including digital thermometers, ear thermometers, rectal thermometers, specialty thermometers and axillary thermometers. They are designed by some popular manufacturers like Mabis DMI Healthcare, Medline Industries, Medtronic, KAZ USA, etc.
Digital thermometers use microcomputer technology to provide maximum accuracy and precision of measurements. They have easy-to-read digital display. Digital thermometers can be used in the armpit, mouth or rectum to get body temperature.
Disposable oral/axillary thermometers are one-time use devices used to provide temperature readings. Their softness, flexibility and non-toxic behavior make them suitable for oral and axillary use. Disposable thermometers help in minimizing the risk of cross-contamination.
Ear thermometers are designed for measuring the temperature inside the ear canal. They use infrared rays to give instant and accurate measurements. Quick response and ease of use make them suitable for infants and children.
Rectal thermometers are specifically designed to measure the rectal body temperature. They can be used both for adults and pediatrics. Rectal thermometers can be easily carried along while travelling to get easy-to-read temperatures in short time.
Speciality thermometers are designed for specialized use. They provide quick and precise temperature readings to all types of patients.

Using a sterile thermometer reduces the risk of introducing infection or contamination to patients. Reusable thermometers are classified as intermediate risk items, and therefore must be sterilized before use.
When thermometers are used to take multiple temperatures over the same area in rapid succession, it will ultimately cool the area causing differences.
Yes, it is sensitive to ambient temperature. As long as the thermometer is in approximately the same ambient temperature as the individual whose temperature is being taken it will produce accurate results.
Arterial temperature is the same temperature as the blood flowing from the heart. It is the best determinate of body temperature.
Normal body temperature - 37C (98.6F), measured using a thermometer in the mouth.
