Ear Temperature as Predictor of Rectal Temperature Measured With Modern Devices in the Emergency Department.

Ear thermometers are often requested to be used rather than rectal thermometer (gold standard) for measuring the body temperature, as this method is faster and more user friendly. Former e...

Postoperative Temperature Monitoring In Brain Trauma

This prospective observational study is designed to investigate the relationship between brain temperature, axillary temperature, rectal temperature, and bladder temperature of postoperati...

Diagnostic Performance of C Reactive Protein and Delta CRP in Acute Appendicitis

The diagnosis of acute appendicitis is difficult and despite important advances in medical sciences, detailed patient questioning and precise medical examination are the main keystones of ...

CT Scan Using IV Contrast Alone for Pediatric Appendicitis

Computed tomography (CT) scan using intravenous contrast (CT IV) as the sole type of contrast material, was studied as one method of evaluating children with suspected appendicitis. We fe...

Comparison of Microchip Transponder and Noncontact Infrared Thermometry with Rectal Thermometry in Domestic Swine (Sus scrofa domestica).

During disease outbreaks, core temperature is a useful health metric in swine, due to the presence of pyrexia especially during the acute phase of infection. Despite technologic advances in other face...

Technical note: Preliminary evaluation of an automated indwelling rumen temperature bolus measurement system to detect pyrexia in preweaned dairy calves.

Indwelling rumen temperature bolus (RTB) systems have the potential to offer a convenient and timely method of detecting pyrexia, indicative of active infectious disease. The aim of this pilot study w...

Automated measurement of cattle surface temperature and its correlation with rectal temperature.

The body temperature of cattle varies regularly with both the reproductive cycle and disease status. Establishing an automatic method for monitoring body temperature may facilitate better management o...

Validity of Core Temperature Measurements at 3 Rectal Depths During Rest, Exercise, Cold-Water Immersion, and Recovery.

 No evidence-based recommendation exists regarding how far clinicians should insert a rectal thermistor to obtain the most valid estimate of core temperature. Knowing the validity of temperatures at...

Role of C-reactive Protein in Acute Appendicitis.

Background Acute appendicitis is the common surgical emergency. This study analyzed the value of C-reactive protein as the diagnostic marker of acute appendicitis. Objective To assess the level of C-r...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Measurement of the temperature of a material, or of the body or an organ by various temperature sensing devices which measure changes in properties of the material that vary with temperature, such as ELASTICITY; MAGNETIC FIELDS; or LUMINESCENCE.

Acute inflammation of the APPENDIX. Acute appendicitis is classified as simple, gangrenous, or perforated.

Medicated dosage forms that are designed to be inserted into the rectal, vaginal, or urethral orifice of the body for absorption. Generally, the active ingredients are packaged in dosage forms containing fatty bases such as cocoa butter, hydrogenated oil, or glycerogelatin that are solid at room temperature but melt or dissolve at body temperature.

The study of natural phenomena by observation, measurement, and experimentation.

The act of regarding attentively and studying facts and occurrences, gathering data through analyzing, measuring, and drawing conclusions, with the purpose of applying the observed information to theoretical assumptions. Observation as a scientific method in the acquisition of knowledge began in classical antiquity; in modern science and medicine its greatest application is facilitated by modern technology. Observation is one of the components of the research process.
