This non-contact thermometer is a handy tool when you are not able to keep the patient still even for a few seconds while you take the temperature from a traditional thermometer. This non-contact thermometer as the name suggests does not even come in contact with the patient while taking the reading. Non-contact thermometers sometimes referred to as temperature guns, are simply aimed at the middle of the forehead from a specified distance with infrared rays used to determine the patient's temperature. This thermometer measures the temperature at the surface of the forehead by sensing infrared emission of the skin at the measured point and then calculates the oral-equivalent value using a unique algorithm based on actual body temperature survey data.
