How to take tympanic temperature in children

8 ratings | 6598 views
A tympanic thermometer consists of an otoscope-like tip with an infrared sensor on the end that detects heat radiated from the ear’s tympanic membrane. When using the thermometer, cover the tip with a single-use, disposable plastic sheath. Place the covered tip at the external opening of the ear canal, and wait 2 to 5 seconds after you press the scan button for the temperature display. To obtain an accurate reading from a tympanic thermometer, it is important to place the probe at the proper angle for sealing the ear canal. Do not use the tympanic site if the patient reports ear pain or has excessive earwax, drainage from the ear, or sores or injuries in or around the ear. The average normal oral temperature is 98.6°F (37°C). A rectal temperature is 0.5°F (0.3°C) to 1°F (0.6°C) higher than an oral temperature. An ear (tympanic) temperature is 0.5°F (0.3°C) to 1°F (0.6°C) higher than an oral temperature.
