Temperature Examination

Taking a patient's temperature is an initial part of a full clinical examination. The moment the medical provider comes within inches of the patient’s skin, they can tell if there is a change in the patient’s temperature. Heat radiates from a febrile patient, skin becomes clammy when cardiac output is reduced, and cold skin can be an ominous sign when combined with other negative findings. Temperature is an important indicator for patient status. How the Temperature is Attained...

The bolometer, invented in 1878 by Samuel Pierpont Langley, measures the energy of incident electromagnetic radiation. It consists of an absorptive element connected to a heat sink through a thermal link. The absortive element raises its temperature above that of the heat sink when radiation impinges on it. The higher the energy the higher the temperature rises. Old bolometers used metals while newer ones used semiconductors and superconductors as the absorptive elements. Bolometers can...

Condensation is the change of the physical state of matter from a gaseous form into liquid form. When the transition of matter happens from gaseous to solid directly, it is known as deposition. Condensation occurs when a vapor is cooled or compressed to its dew point. Water vapor that naturally condenses on cold surfaces into liquid is called dew. Water vapor will only condense on another surface when the temperature of the surface is cooler than the temperature of the water vapor. Water...
