TRITEMP™: A new non contact infrared thermometer designed for clinical use
How does TRITEMP™ work?
All objects emit energy in the form of an invisible radiation called infrared (IR) and the intensity of the energy varies according to its temperature. TRITEMP™ consists of a lens to focus the infrared energy onto a detector, which converts the energy to an electrical signal that can be displayed in units of temperature after being compensated for ambient temperature variation.
Temperature taken 3-5 cm from a hair-free and sweat-free forehead measures the heat generated from arterial flow and is a good indication of body temperature. All temperature readings are accompanied by a screen colour that signifies whether a patient is normal (green), has a slight fever (orange) or is febrile (red). An alarm will also sound if the body temperature is 38°C (100.4°F) or above.
