How to Read Single-Use Indicator Strips, Liquid Crystal Thermometers, and Glass Thermometers to Determine Body Temperature
Have you ever asked yourself:
- I'm familiar with reading digital thermometers, but not any other type. How do I read the glass or disposable ones?
- I'm not sure how to interpret all the lines and dots on the new thermometers. What do they mean?
- What are some common types of disposable and reusable thermometers, and how do I read them?
If you seek answers to these questions, then this course is for you.
Don't Worry. This course is not about learning the ENTIRE process of how to measure body temperature. Instead, this course targets one specific skill that many beginning students find challenging—reading thermometers. In this course, you will learn how to read glass thermometers, single-use temperature indicator strips, and liquid crystal thermometers to determine a patient's body temperature.
