Additional information as provided by manfacturer:
Tempa-DOT thermometers are accurate, convenient, versatile and economical body temperature measuring devices. Clinically accurate oral body temperature can be obtained in 60 seconds and axillary temperatures in three minutes. Tempa-DOT thermometers use a dot sensor matrix consisting of temperature-sensitive indicating dots. Each dot changes color from tan to blue at a specific temperature relative to the melting point of the specific chemical mixture of the dot. Each dot changes color at a temperature of 0.2°F or 0.1°C higher than the preceding dot. Body temperature is read from a numerical temperature scale. Tempa-DOT thermometers are sensitive to environmental temperature - see storage conditions.
- Single-use thermometer is sterile and individually wrapped to reduce risk of cross-transmission of microorganisms and to reduce risk of additional hospital stay related to health care-associated infection.
- Provides consistently accurate temperature readings for reliable patient assessment.
- Easy to read and simple to understand.
- Versatile thermometer can be used to take oral or axilla temperatures, provides a fast reading in 60 seconds for oral temperature, and allows you to check other patient vital signs simultaneously with temperature taking.
- Disposable to eliminate time and labor spent on disinfection, recalibration, recharging and repair of electronic and tympanic units, and eliminate expense and risk associated with toxic mercury cleanup and disposal.
- No risk of toxic mercury exposure makes this thermometer a nontoxic and safe choice for patients of all ages.
