Different Types Of Thermometer
To clarify further the “forehead world thermometer” here we leave clarifications on some of the different types that can be found in the market.
- – Infant thermometer : this model can be used rectal, axillary and oral. Registers body temperature by means of heat sensors. It is fast, accurate and easy to read. It is safe since it does not contain mercury and has the flexible tip so it avoids accidents with the baby. It has LCD screen and emits a sound when it finishes reading the temperature of the baby besides having a funny design so that the baby is entertained while it takes the temperature to him.
- – Forehead thermometer for children : it offers the same characteristics as the infant thermometer and can be used both in children and adults. Its great characteristic like the child thermometer is its cheap price. Just like the infant thermometer has an LCD that shows the temperature when the alarm sounds.
3.- Pacifier thermometer: this is a thermometer that is usually used when any of the following occurs, when the baby is very small, when the baby is asleep and is not wanted to wake up or when they are disturbed and there is no way to use the child thermometer. They are accurate and fast in their results.
- – Forehead thermometer for babies of ear and forehead : this type of thermometers has many criticisms, good and bad. There are those who think that it offers a lot of variation in the different measurements in the temperature and some people do not change for the world.
It is a thermometer that measures by infrared and can be used as a front thermometer , just by supporting the thermometer on the forehead and pressing the button, which will give us the temperature in a few seconds or can be used as a thermometer by inserting the introduced cannula in the hatred of the baby and no, do not be frightened, this type of measurement by the ear can not cause any damage to the ear drum or ear canal of your baby.
I think we all feel the same about Grandmother’s method of “putting your hand on the forehead” was outdated a long time ago, so for the safety of the smallest and not of the elders as well, the most useful is have one of these forehead thermometers in our kit.
