The use of infra-red (tympanic) temperature as a guide to signs of heat stress in industry
Previous IOM research, showed that the use of a simple infra-red (IR) ear thermometer did not provide a reliable prediction of core body temperature for use in industrial situations (Graveling et al, 2009). The aim of this research was to explore the use of an IR ear thermometer further, and to determine whether the consistency and accuracy of the measurements obtained could be improved sufficiently to provide a reliable indication of the risk of an individual suffering from heat strain. Published studies where IR temperature has been compared with core temperature benchmarks such as rectal temperature...
