Rectum, esophagus. Thermistor probes (most widely used) o The thermistor is a resistive device, having a high negative temperature coefficient of resistance, so that its resistance decreases proportionately as the temperature increases. o As the resistance of the thermistor changes, the electrical current flowing through the probe changes proportionally. o The level of current detected by the electronic monitor is converted to thermal units. Thermocouple probes o The thermocouple probe is a very small bead made up of the junction of two dissimilar metals.

O Use only in term infants during outbreak of Staphylococcus aureus infection. o Do not apply more than twice to each infant, unless application is restricted to diaper area (18). o Wash off solution completely.

Store antiseptics in closed containers. Reusable dispensers should be thoroughly cleaned, dried, and refilled frequently.

There is an audible signal at the end of the determination time window. o Determination time is <45 seconds. 1°C. o Probe-type electronic thermometers are designed to be used with disposable probe covers.
