Digital thermometers work by measuring temperature through electronic sensors, typically placed in a probe or a tip. They’re considered accurate and reliable for measuring body temperature when used correctly. Most digital thermometers use infrared technology to detect the temperature of the area being measured, such as the forehead or ear canal. However, it's crucial to follow the manufacturer's instructions for proper usage to ensure accurate readings.
The best location for taking your temperature with a digital thermometer can vary depending on the type of thermometer you're using. For oral and underarm readings, place the thermometer as directed by the manufacturer. Forehead thermometers should be used by positioning the thermometer against the centre of the forehead. Ear thermometers should be inserted gently into the ear canal, ensuring a proper seal. Always follow the specific instructions provided with your thermometer to get the most accurate reading.
A fever is an elevated body temperature that’s often a sign of an underlying illness. The threshold for a fever can vary by age and individual factors, but a general guideline is a temperature of 38°C or higher. However, it's essential to consider other symptoms and individual health conditions. Infants, for example, may have a lower fever threshold. If you or a family member has a persistent high fever, experiences severe symptoms, or has underlying health conditions, it's advisable to contact a healthcare professional for guidance and evaluation.
