A Digital Thermometer, also known as an Electronic Thermometer, is a medical device used to measure temperature of the human body. Temperature is most commonly measured as Oral Temperature which is taken by placing a temperature probe in the mouth under the tongue or Rectal Temperature which is taken by inserting a temperature probe into the rectum. An Electronic Thermometer most commonly consists of a base with digital screen, a cord that is usually 4 foot or 9 foot and a connecting temperature probe. To reduce the risk of cross contamination, a disposable probe cover is placed over the probe and disposed of after each patient use.
