BACKGROUND Temperature measurement is important for emergency medical services (EMS) providers when identifying and treating heat illness or infection. Direct measures of body core temperature (T(c)) are often expensive (ingestible capsules) or impractical (rectal probes) in the field. Multiple devices for estimating T(c) have been adopted by EMS providers, with little understanding of the agreement between these devices and T(c). OBJECTIVE To examine the agreement between the results of five… CONTINUE READING
