Infant & Baby Thermometer
Here at Medical Supplies Equipment Company we understand that accurately taking the temperature of infants requires special baby thermometer. These tiny patients have very short attention spans, and if they are already suffering from a fever, they are in no mood to be probed and prodded for extended periods of time. That is why we offer a fine selection easy-to-use infant thermometer that are tolerated by even the fussiest of babies.
Even the youngest of patients become ill, but when trying to run tests to determine their body temperature, the physician or parent is often met with a struggling toddler or bawling infant. For a baby who will not shut his mouth to stop crying, an oral thermometer is out of the question. These also pose a choking hazard to infants and young children. For the most accurate temperature gage for an infant, the best option is to use an ear thermometer for infants. These are inserted into the ear canal and within a few seconds can give a reading of the child's body temperature. The process is so quick that the baby usually is not aware of having his temperature being taken. This is a far cry from the rectal thermometers which were used as infant thermometer in the past. These often were messy to use and required the addition of a lubricant such as petroleum jelly. Patients did not often tolerate these very well, leading to squirming and struggling, and due to movement while taking the temperature, nurses and parents would often have to repeat the test.
Infant thermometer have the advantage as well of a clear digital display. No longer does the nurse or parent have to try spinning a mercury thermometer to guess at the closest level of the mercury inside. All that is needed is a quick glance at the read-out number on the baby thermometer , and a diagnosis of a fever or not can be made. This lessens the chances of having to repeat the procedure of taking the child's temperature. Both the patient and his parents will welcome this aspect of our infant thermometer.
