How To Choosing The Correct Thermometer

- Apr 18, 2018 -

To take an axillary temperature, use a digital thermometer. Either an oral or rectal digital thermometer will work, but designate the thermometer for axillary use only, to avoid contamination. Ear thermometers and digital thermometers that scan the temples or forehead are available for purchase, but they won't work in the armpit. The old-style glass and mercury thermometers, no longer sold in the United States, should not be used because of the risk of injury from broken glass and from the mercury inside.
