KK Women’s and Children’s Hospital evaluates a wireless thermometer against ear and axillary temperatures in children

Journal of Pediatric Nursing, article (extract), June 2010:

This study evaluated the ThermoSENSOR against ear temperatures (ETs) measured by a Braun ThermoScan ear thermometer and axillary temperatures (ATs) measured by a Terumo digital clinical thermometer. The test participants consisted of 109 children aged 6 months to 16 years from a pediatric ward. … These results suggest that the TTs were comparable to the ETs and ATs.
