Abstract
An infrared thermometer, the FirstTemp, was tested among newborn infants by comparing tympanic membrane temperature measurements in three operating modes, "Cal-tympanic," "Cal-surface," and "Cor-tympanic," with nearly simultaneous tympanic membrane, rectal, and axillary temperature measurements using other standard methods. The FirstTemp underestimated other measurements of body temperature in the "Cal-tympanic" mode and overestimated them in the "Cor-tympanic" mode. In the "Cal-surface" mode, the First-Temp readings were significantly lower than tympanic membrane temperatures measured with a thermistor probe and electronic thermometer (mean difference 0.2°C) but not significantly different from rectal or axillary temperatures. According to these results, the FirstTemp can be used reliably in the "Cal-surface" mode but not in the "Cal-tympanic" or "Cor-tympanic" mode. Its speed and ease of operation offer significant advantages over traditional clinical methods of temperature measurement.
