The application and principle of body temperature

06/07/2022
Hypothermia is very common in postoperative animals, especially in small animals. Hypothermia reduces the metabolism of anesthetic drugs, prolongs recovery time and increases the risk of organ dysfunction and coagulation disorders.

In the production process, infrared temperature measurement technology has played an important role in product quality control and monitoring, equipment online fault diagnosis and safety protection, and energy saving. In the past 20 years, non-contact infrared thermometers have developed rapidly in technology, with constantly improving performance, increasing functions, increasing varieties, expanding scope of application, and increasing market share year by year. With the harmonious coexistence of humans and animals, there are also veterinary thermometers for various pets, mercury thermometers and infrared thermometers.

 


Application: guide the implementation of hypothermic anesthesia and extracorporeal circulation, control the process of cooling and heating

Principle: When the temperature changes, the resistance of the thermistor changes accordingly, and the temperature can be measured through the one-to-one correspondence between the resistance temperature (R-T).

Tips: The difference between the body surface temperature and the rectal temperature of a normal patient is generally around 5 degrees Celsius.
