Measuring rectal temperature in children is the gold standard, but ear or forehead measures are less traumatic and faster. The quality of non-invasive devices has improved but concerns remain whether they are reliable enough to substitute rectal thermometers. The aim was to evaluate in a real-life children population whether the forehead or ear temperature measurements could be used in screening to detect fever and if the agreement with the rectal temperature for different age groups is acceptable for clinical use.

We compared the accuracy and utility of 3 infrared (IFR) thermographs fitted with axillary digital thermometers used to measure temperature in febrile and afebrile children admitted to an emergency tr...
Accurate determination of temperature is crucial in the diagnosis of febrile conditions. Although fewer techniques have proven as useful and reliable a predictor of core body temperature as the rectal...
The objective of this study was to evaluate relationships between measurements of temperature-humidity index (THI) and rectal, vaginal, and udder surface temperatures in lactating cows exposed to heat...
The purpose of this work was to investigate experimentally the capacity of passive acoustic thermometry (PAT) for the reconstruction of 1D, time-variable distributions of the internal temperature. Bec...
This paper presents a polymer-optical-fiber (POF)-based sensor system for simultaneous measurement of angle and temperature. The main contribution is obtaining a sensor with higher temperature sensiti...
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...
The investigators are studying prospectively the difference in axilo-rectal temperature in patients with acute appendicitis and using as a control group patients consulting with acute gast...
Patients who present to the Emergency Department will be evaluated for eligibility to the study. Those meeting all the inclusion criteria and none of the exclusion criteria will undergo an...
This prospective observational study is designed to investigate the relationship between brain temperature, axillary temperature, rectal temperature, and bladder temperature of postoperati...
Our primary hypothesis is that the Draeger dual-sensor temperature monitoring system, used at the forehead, is sufficiently accurate compared to tympanic, bladder or esophageal temperature...
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.
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.
Measurement of the amount of air that the lungs may contain at various points in the respiratory cycle.
A prenatal ultrasonic measurement of the thickness or translucent area below the SKIN in the back of the fetal NECK, or nape of the neck, during the first 11-14 weeks of gestation (PREGNANCY TRIMESTER, FIRST). Abnormal thickness or nuchal translucent measurements resulting from fluid collection, is associated with increased risks of CHROMOSOME ABNORMALITIES. (Nicolaides et al., 1992)
Measurement of light resulting from PHYSICAL CHEMILUMINESCENCE such as from LUMINESCENT PROTEINS and LUMINESCENT AGENTS.
Pediatrics is the general medicine of childhood. Because of the developmental processes (psychological and physical) of childhood, the involvement of parents, and the social management of conditions at home and at school, pediatrics is a specialty. With ...
Anxiety is caused by stress. It is a natural reaction, and is beneficial in helping us deal with tense situations and pressure. It is deterimental when is becomes an excessive, irrational dread of everyday situations. The most common types of anxiety di...
