Why do you need to know your body temperature?
Bacterial or viral infections will often cause the body’s defensive cells to release proteins. These proteins act on the temperature regulating control centre of the body, causing body temperature to rise. This results in a fever, a temperature different from normal body temperature. Certain illnesses produce high fevers and must be treated with medication. Any variation in normal body temperature may indicate an illness and your doctor should be consulted.
The best method to determine an individual’s normal temperature is to use the thermometer when the person is feeling well. Record readings twice a day (early morning and late afternoon) and take the average of the two temperatures. This is then considered a personal ‘normal’ body temperature.
How do you take the body temperature?
1.Mouth: The thermometer sensor is placed on the tongue with the mouth closed around the thermometer.
2.Under the Arm: The thermometer is positioned in the armpit with the arm held closely to the body keeping the thermometer in place.
3.Rectally: The thermometer sensor is placed into the rectum while the patient lies on their stomach.
