Tempa•DOT™ Plus – Rectal’s accuracy is the same as, or better than, other thermometers commonly used in a healthcare setting. Each dot has its own formulated temperature point that fires at a specific temperature. When a dot fires, its color changes from brown to blue. The number of dots that fire is dependent upon the patient’s temperature. The last blue dot provides the accurate reading of the patient’s rectal temperature.
