BACKGROUND There is uncertainty about the accuracy of peripheral thermometers in measuring temperatures within the febrile physiological range. OBJECTIVE To determine the accuracy of peripheral thermometers in detecting febrile core temperatures among critically ill patients, and, if required, to determine a standard conversion equation to improve accuracy. METHODS A systematic search of MEDLINE, Embase, the Cochrane Central Register of Controlled Trials and PubMed was undertaken to… CONTINUE READING
