In order to develop a sampling strategy and a method for analyzing the circadian body temperature pattern, we monitored estimates of the temperature in four ways using rectal, oral, axillary and deep body temperature from the skin surface every hour for 72 consecutive hours in 10 normal control subjects. Data obtained were analyzed with the least-squares method to estimate the circadian rhythm. Deep body temperature from the skin surface correlated better with rectal temperature than with… CONTINUE READING
