Non-contact infrared thermometers (NCITs) can be used to measure temperature rapidly and non-invasively, potentially causing less distress to children than conventional methods. Like infrared tympanic thermometers, NCITs can provide temperature readings within seconds. Most NCITs measure temperature over the central forehead area, but temperature over other body surfaces may also be measured if the child’s forehead is perspiring or if the child is moving. NCITs can also measure children’s temperature while they are sleeping. Since the use of NCITs does not involve any body surface contact, the risk of cross-infection is negligible and neither disinfection nor disposable probe covers are needed.
