Thermometer Guide

Health Care Thermometers

Temperatures are taken generally in the ear, mouth, bottom, or under the arm. Each method is considered accurate when done correctly. Temperature readings can differ slightly depending on the method, so be sure to use the same method for consistency.

Temporal Artery Thermometers

This thermometer employs an infrared scanner to measure the body temperature at forehead.

Advantages- Temporal artery thermometers can record an individual’s temperature quickly and are often endured. Temporal artery thermometers are proper for infant’s older kids and older than age three months.

Digital Ear thermometers

This thermometer measures the temperatures inside the ear canal with the help of an infrared ray.

Advantages- Electronic ear thermometers are reasonably precise and quick when positioned correctly. Ear thermometers are suitable for babies older than age six months.

Infrared Thermometers

Infrared thermometers allow users to measure temperature in applications where conventional sensors cannot be employed.   

Specifically, in cases dealing with moving objects ( i.e., rollers, moving machinery, or a conveyor belt), or where non-contact measurements are required because of contamination or hazardous reasons (such as high voltage), where distances are too great, or where the temperatures to be measured are too high for thermocouples or other contact sensors.

An infrared thermometer is a surface temperature tool – period. If you’re grilling, baking, smoking, or roasting you’re going to need a penetration probe to tell you the internal temperature of the food you’re cooking. An infrared will only give you the surface temperature of the food.

Oven Thermometers


Ovens are not accurate. Since all ovens cycle on and off to maintain temperature, even the best models will deviate from the desired target by at least a few degrees throughout cooking. Ovens set to the same temperature can vary by as much as 80 degrees. You can use an oven thermometer to see real temperature.

In addition to giving accurate temperature readings, an oven thermometer should be easy to read and easy to mount safely . It should also be durable.

Blood Pressure Monitors

Basically, blood pressure is a measure of the force against the walls of your arteries. Arterial blood pressure is constantly changing during the course of the heart’s cycle.   

The highest pressure is called the Systolic Blood Pressure; the lowest the Diastolic Blood Pressure. Both pressure readings, are necessary to enable a doctor to evaluate the status of a patient’s blood pressure.

A reading between 135 mm Hg (millimetres of Mercury), Systolic and 85 mm Hg Diastolic is considered normal.

According to World Health Organisation, and International Society for Hypertension, blood pressure should normally be less than 140 / 90 mm Hg but above 120 / 80 mm Hg for an adult. Blood pressure that stays between 140 -160 / 90 – 95 is considered critical (mild Hypertension), and above this level (160 / 95 mm Hg or higher) is considered high (Hypertension). The values indicated above may differ by region and country.
