Temperature, whether of the environment around you or of your body’s internal, both should not be higher. As high atmospheric temperature means heat and summers which aren’t a favorite season for most people. However, similarly high body temperature too is not good for health and when detected, do visit a doctor to find its root cause. As far as the detection part is concerned, that you can even do on your own with a thermometer. So a brief about what a thermometer is all about, although most of you must know about it!
This device is used to record or measure the temperature and it is composed of two essential components: in the glass thermometer, mercury is stored in a glass bulb and it acts as a sensor against temperature rise and it moves to detect the temperature change. The nature of sensor can vary depending upon the type of thermometer. The second feature is the scale, in a mercury thermometer, the meniscus moves up depending upon how high the body temperature is and you read that reading across the scale. Some key facts about thermometers include the fact that these began to be used during the times of the ancient Greek, but obviously not like they are today. With development in latest technology, thermometers too have evolved and the reading now a days is displayed on the monitor screen.

As far as the features of this thermometer are concerned, the first and foremost important thing is that it is hand held, which means it is light in weight and can be easily carried around. The tip of this thermometer is pre heated, which means that time is saved which in old thermometers was spent while waiting for a few minutes, now results cab obtained much faster as well as accurate. This feature and the seca scales makes it perfect to have in clinics and hospitals, where there is always a queue of patients waiting to see the doctor, using this thermometer; the temperature of patients can be noted almost within no time.
Once the patient’s temperature is noted, the nurse or the attendant can easily remove the tip and replace it with a new one for another patient. This process is made much easier with the desk cradle that in this model has the capacity to withhold up to twenty probe covers.
