Hospital Auxiliary purchases Temporal Thermometers for the Emergency Department

Hospital Auxiliary purchases Temporal Thermometers for the Emergency Department

The Missouri Baptist Sullivan Hospital Auxiliary recently provided funds to purchase two Temporal Thermometers for the Emergency Department.  The Exergen Thermometer works by scanning across the patient’s temporal artery which is located close to the surface of the skin.  Thousands of individual readings are taken and the most accurate one is displayed.  What makes this device so efficient is that it scans the temporal artery which receives blood directly from the heart, located in the core of the body, therefore giving a very quick and accurate reading.  “We really appreciate the generosity of our Auxiliary in helping us get these much needed thermometers for the Emergency Department,” remarked Johna Carpenter, ED Team Lead/Charge Nurse.
