The primary aim of this study was to determine the accuracy of an infrared thermometer compared to the gold standard, mercury-in-glass thermometer. The secondary aim was to compare tympanic and axillary temperature measurements by evaluating agreement and correlation to determine whether an infrared tympanic thermometer can replace an axillary mercury thermometer in the emergency department.

Drugs to treat fever are widely used in children with fever. But there is a controversy about the benefit of reducing fever in children with malaria. Ibuprofen is often used to treat malar...
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the safety of Q Fever vaccine, NDBR 105, and collect data on incidence of occupational Q Fever infection in at risk personnel.
To inform the feasibility of conducting a study to test different temperature thresholds at which clinicians deliver interventions to reduce fever (i.e. antipyretic interventions) in criti...
RATIONALE: Comparing results of three different thermometers used to measure body temperature may help doctors find the most accurate thermometer to detect fever and plan the best treatmen...
There are few treatments for central fever (fever that is due to the central nervous system, as opposed to an infectious source). We hypothesize that an externally applied cooling blanket ...
Fever is commonly observed in patients who have had aneurysmal subarachnoid hemorrhage (SAH), and it has been associated with the occurrence of delayed cerebral ischemia and worse outcomes in previous...
Fever is an evolutionary conserved defense mechanism which is present in both endothermic and ectothermic vertebrates. Ectotherms in response to infection can increase their body temperature by moving...
Long-term fatigue with detrimental effects on daily functioning often occurs following acute Q-fever. Following the 2007-2010 Q-fever outbreak in the Netherlands with over 4000 notified cases, the emp...
