What is a Physician’s Digital Thermometer?

Digital thermometers are medical instruments which are used to measure temperature. They are easily portable with permanent probes and a suitable digital display. The operation of a digital thermometer depends greatly on the type of sensor. The types of sensors include a resistance temperature detector (RTD), a thermocouple, and a thermistor.

The digital thermometer is a thermometer which is operated using a battery with a connected measuring sensor and easy to read LCD display. It produces precise temperature readings. The materials which are used to make the digital thermometer include durable plastic materials and is suitable for all types of cooling devices, such as refrigerated cabinets and display cabinets among others. The size of the digital thermometer makes it perfect for all situations that require accurate reading and easy to read screen displays the temperature of the environment in Celsius.

How does a Physician’s Digital Thermometer Work?

Digital thermometers are gradually replacing the conventional mercury thermometer simply because of the ease of reading display by the digital thermometer. The wrong idea from people is that it contains mercury. The content of this thermometer is a thermistor inside the tip that is used in order to measure the temperature. Digital thermometers provide quick and very accurate results throughout the body temperature range.

Digital thermometers are based on the principle that the electrical resistance of metals changes with temperature. Resistance increases as the temperature increases and decreases while it cools. The digital thermometer works by transmitting the voltage across the electrode and measuring the current that changes the temperature. The temperature is converted into a temperature reading by a microchip. These thermometers are easy to read using the LCD screen. They are equipped with an audible alarm and memory function and can capture a wide temperature range. Thermometers used mainly by doctors can read the temperature between 94oF and 105oF (35oC and 42oC). It is a three in one thermometer because it can record oral, auxiliary and rectal temperatures

Where Physician’s Digital Thermometers are Used

Anyone can make use of a thermometer in order to take the temperature of almost everything. Digital thermometers have been found to be useful in many industries. The temperature must be monitored and regulated in the human body, other living organisms, food, atmosphere, laboratories and for other scientific reasons.

Digital thermometers are designed with long, thin probe, perfect for liquids and soft materials. This also indicates that they can get in touch with places which are difficult to access. There is a difference in the design of digital thermometers and this depends on the purpose they serve. For example, a thermometer for testing body temperature may have a plastic coated probe with a small rounded metal tip. While it is possible to use digital thermometers for many different tasks, it is advisable to use another for each task to avoid cross-contamination.
