The fever thermometer is the traditional bar thermometer. This thermometer is easy to use and measures your body temperature quickly and very accurately. Body temperature can be measured in three different ways: axillary, oral and rectal. At Blood pressure meter.shop you can find a fever thermometer from Omron, Hartmann and other top brands.
Buy a fever thermometer for your homeIt is recommended that you always use an Omron fever thermometer, iHealth, or to have an excellent quality brand in house. Although they are not always comfortable, this does not make up for the fact that they measure your body temperature very accurately.
A digital fever thermometerThe traditional fever thermometer is a bar thermometer made of glass and filled with mercury. Nowadays this is no longer allowed due to the toxicity of mercury. It is not good for your health if the glass breaks and you get mercury into your body. Fortunately, there are now digital meters. These can very easily measure the body temperature without endangering your health.
Different variantsYou can choose from two different variants. They are available with a flexible and with a fixed point. The point is also called a tip. Both variants measure your temperature equally accurately. The flexible tip offers more convenience. Especially if you are measuring rectally. The meter then moves with you. A fixed point meter is particularly useful for axillary measurements. Do you measure axillary, orally or rectally? With a fever thermometer from Omron, Microlife or another top brand you can measure the body temperature in three different ways: axillary, oral or rectal.
- Axillary means that the temperature is measured under the armpit. This is not the most accurate method. This is because measurements are taken outside the body. It is not recommended by general practitioners to measure your body temperature in this way.
- Oral means that the body temperature is measured in the mouth. Although the thermometer is more in the body, this is also not the most accurate method. It saves about 0,3 to 0,5 degrees with a rectal measurement.
- Rectal means that the body temperature is measured in the anus. As a result, the meter is in the body and the body temperature can be measured exactly. For some people this is perceived as uncomfortable, but babies are not bothered much. A rectal thermometer is recommended to measure the temperature. Of course, the meter should always be thoroughly cleaned with alcohol after using it rectally.
