Disposable Thermometers Market

Disposable Thermometers Market: Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Growth, Trends, and Forecast, 2020 - 2030

Disposable Thermometers: Introduction

  • Disposable thermometers are rigid or flexible temperature measuring medical devices and are used in a few target areas of the body such as forehead, armpits, and rectum
  • Single use disposable thermometers are individually wrapped for single patient use and are designed to reduce the risk of cross infection or reinfection that could occur with other thermometer systems. Simply discard the thermometer after patient use. This helps prevent spread of infections such as Clostridium Difficile, MRSA, Norovirus, and Rotavirus.
  • Disposable thermometers have a temperature measuring range from 96.0-104°F and are accurate to within 0.2°F. A disposable thermometer provides an accurate temperature reading in just one minute for oral readings and 3 minutes for axillary readings.
