Body temperature measurement at the neonatal ward

Parents check their baby's body temperature several times a day.

  1. Lift the baby's arm carefully and place the thermometer in the armpit.
  2. Place your supportive hand on the arm and hold the baby.
  3. After a while a beeping sound is heard and the measurement is done. Lift the baby's arm again and remove the thermometer carefully.
  4. Disinfect the thermometer before putting it in its case.
