Clinical Thermometer – Mercury and Digital

Transcript


NET Brand Clinical Thermometers.
Mankind is using mercury thermometer to measure temperature for years.
Mercury Thermometers are usually 3-4 inches long.
Narang Medical Limited offers Clinical thermometer, Prismatic, Dual Scale, Clinical thermometer,
Flat, Dual Scale and Thermometer Rectal and Basal thermometer.
Mercury thermometer has a scale alongside the thermometer, in this we have dual scale
Fahrenheit and Centigrade, from where the reading is taken.
The tip of the thermometer is full of mercury.
Before using the thermometer we need to wash it with normal drinking water and then shake
it down, like this.
Shaking it down will move the mercury from this end to the tip.
Ideally, before taking temperature, mercury level should be below 97°.
Now place it underneath the tongue and hold it right there for two minutes.
Mercury thermometers could be used orally, rectally and under the arm.
The preferable way to use it is under the tongue.
But the children under 4 years might not be comfortable with this way.
In that case we can use the thermometer under the arm.
For small babies Narang Medical Ltd offers rectal thermometers.
After around two minutes remove it from the mouth and take the reading of mercury on the
scale.
98.6 is normal under the tongue, 97.6 is normal under the arm and 99.6 is normal rectally.
Narang Medical Limited also offers Digital thermometer.
Caution: Mercury is a dangerous substance and if accidentally the thermometer is broken,
one should not touch the mercury with bare hands.
There are country specific rules how one should dispose it off.

Glass Thermometer Review

The mercury-in-a-glass or mercury thermometers were invented by German physicist, Daniel Fahrenheit, in 1797 in Amsterdam. It is actually a mercury lamp bulb with a large mercury drop on one end of the bulb and a glass tube filled with water. The fluid level in the tubes is significantly less than that of the bulb; thus, the temperature in these tubes is significantly cooler.

These days, there are various kinds of thermometers available in the market, all of which are designed to give accurate readings about the temperature inside any kind of glass container or thermometer. Some are made with platinum in silver with gold-colored strips; others are made of clear glass with silver strips. You may select the type that best suits your need and the application.

The main advantage of the mercury-in-a-glass thermometers is that it is very convenient to use. There is no need to handle the mercury or put it inside the container to get the readings. You just need to place it on the place where the temperature is expected and wait for the readings. The temperature of the fluid can be calculated with just one hand and there is no need to be concerned about the accuracy of the readings.

You can use mercury-in-a-glass thermometers anywhere, even in a hot car. You can just take the thermometer and place it on the dashboard so that you can keep a track of the temperature in your car’s dashboard. You can then take the temperature in the vehicle to the nearest restaurant for dining or take it to work so that you can check on the temperature in your office cubicle.

You can also use glass thermometers in the laboratory, in labs, and in schoolrooms. These thermometers are ideal to measure and record the temperature inside a sealed container without needing to open it. You can do this while keeping your hands busy or while studying in class. The thermometer can also be used to test a substance inside a bottle in an alcohol test kit so that you can know the amount of alcohol present in the bottle before you drink it.

If you are a teacher, you can use glass thermometers in your classroom so that you can keep track of the temperature in the room where the students are. If you have small children at home, you can use the thermometers in your garage to monitor their temperature. They can be used in their rooms as well. Thus, they can be a useful tool for teaching and learning. You can also use these thermometers in hospitals and nursing homes, so that the patients can be monitored properly so that they can be properly treated.

    This is easy to use and shakes down like an old thermometer. You have to rotate it, much like an old thermometer, before you find the correct angle to see the column. It takes a good three minutes under the tongue with the mouth closed to get an accurate read. If your children were raised with instant read digital thermometers, this can require some mental adjustment. But it’s good to know that the battery won’t be dead the next time they get sick, because no battery is a bad thing.

    I figured I had a defective one as well, because when it came, the blue line seemed to be all the way to the top and would not come down no matter how hard I shook it. I decided to take my temp anyway. A shorter blue line had gone up to 98.6 from another angle. This seemed true because I wasn’t sick. I was able to shake the line with no more effort than you had to put into mercury thermometers.

    I believe that many people who are having difficulty shaking down the temperature are misreading it.

    I actually desired a non-battery-powered thermometer. I didn’t buy the cheapest one available, but I was hoping this would suffice as a substitute for a glass mercury thermometer. It arrived slowly (2-1/2 months was a long time, even with COVID thermometer shortages) and never worked. When the silver fluid in the glass tube was unpacked, it was above 42 degrees Celsius (maximum reading), despite the fact that the room temperature was about 74 degrees Fahrenheit (23C). And after shaking it down to the bulb end, like an old mercury thermometer, the fluid easily rose up above 42 degrees Celsius.
