Medical Temperature

Sensors and Their Uses

 

Ever since one's first experience with a fever thermometer, almost everyone has known what it means "to have a temperature". The fever thermometer is still in abundant supply and still the second most frequent test used (after a hand on the forehead) to indicate the presence of an infection in the human body by noting an elevation in body temperature.

Human and animal body temperatures are so important to the well being of warm blooded animals, that the nominal body temperature indicated by a fever thermometer or similar device, is used as one of the vital signs routinely monitored as an indicator of a state of a person's or animal's health.

The temperature of food plays a big role in assuring that certain products are well-enough cooked to kill harmful organisms like bacteria. Similarly many foods, including cooked food, become breeding grounds for other harmful organisms if unrefrigerated too long or even if left in a refrigerated environment for too long a time. Certainly in the cooking area it is quite straightforward to monitor the internal temperature of meats and fish to assure that the proper minimum temperature has been attained before it is considered safe. See the list of cooking temperatures for food on our food temperature sensor page

Certainly there are other medical applications of temperature sensors, but this is perhaps these more familiar uses are places to start into the vast area represented by the medical field, food safety, veterinary medicine and related disciplines.

Be sure to come back and see the added areas soon.
