The accuracy of axillary temperature measurement using an electronic thermometer in the predictive mode was investigated in term and preterm infants. Predictive mode measurements were compared to axillary monitoring mode measurements and to rectal temperature recordings. Fifty temperature recordings were obtained in each of four groups of neonates (full-term/radiant warmer, full-term/open crib, preterm/radiant warmer, preterm/incubator). Correlation of axillary predictive and monitoring mode… CONTINUE READING
