The forehead thermometer is during Corona the most used fever thermometer. The body temperature can be measured reliably and quickly with a forehead thermometer. Most forehead thermometers are contactless. This means that the device does not need to be placed against the head but can be kept at a short distance. This makes this type of digital thermometer the most hygienic fever thermometer. In addition, the transmission of bacteria and viruses is kept to a minimum.
Since the outbreak of Covid-19, the non-contact forehead thermometer has been widely used at checkpoints such as airports and Covid-19 test sites. The temperature can be measured very quickly and the device does not need to be cleaned after each measurement. In this way a lot of people can be checked in a short period of time for elevation or fever.
Because of the fast and especially hygienic operation of the forehead thermometer, it is also widely used in hospitals and other branches within the healthcare sector. The devices can even be used when people are asleep or unconscious.
A forehead thermometer is, just like the ear thermometer, a digital thermometer that measures body temperature using the infrared radiation emitted by the forehead. For this reason it is also called an infrared thermometer. The more infrared radiation is emitted, the higher the temperature. The temperature can be read from a digital display within a second. At a high temperature the device gives an alarm.
A forehead thermometer is a reliable fever thermometer which is suitable for all ages. It is an ideal device to measure the temperature of (young) children because they do not have to sit still for very long. Apart from that it is a safe and painless way. For children a lot more pleasant than the traditional way.
The use of a forehead thermometer depends on the type of thermometer. Some can be held at a small distance from the head. Other devices must be in contact with the skin. Other forehead thermometers must first be placed on the forehead and pushed through sleep to the cavity behind the earlobe for an accurate measurement. There are even multifunctional forehead thermometers. In addition to measuring body temperature, these meters can also be used to measure the temperature of liquids. Think for example of the bath water or bottle for the baby.
Contactless fever meters do not need to be cleaned after every use. Devices that do need contact to measure the temperature need to be thoroughly cleaned and disinfected after use. A disinfectant containing at least 70% alcohol can be used for this purpose.
Not every thermometer is the same. It should be clear that it is important to read the instructions for use of the fever thermometer carefully before use. Only with correct use the measurement is accurate.
There are still doubts about the reliability of forehead thermometers. This is unjustified. Previously it was assumed that the ear thermometer is more accurate because it measures the body's core temperature. The technique of forehead thermometers has become a lot better and more accurate in recent years. It is not without reason that some hospitals, such as the UMCG, only use this type of fever meter. This proves that a forehead thermometer is reliable.
