Results: There was no statistically significant difference between average age, weight, height, BMI, core and axillary temperatures
preoperatively, at 30 min, 60 min and 90 min.
Oral versus axillary temperatures
in human volunteers.
Conclusions: Axillary temperature
measurement is not a reliable method of documenting the arrival temperature in clinically unstable neonates.
She had axillary temperature
of 99[degrees]F, pulse 110/min, and was pale.
No statistically significant difference was observed in the mean period during which axillary temperature
remained higher than 37[degrees]C--2.
Currently the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) (1995), the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG) (AAP & ACOG, 1997) and the National Association of Neonatal Nurses (NANN) (1997) recommend axillary temperature
measurement as the standard of care for neonates.
On the morning of March 9, she was transported to the same hospital because of an axillary temperature
When she was received in the emergency, she was obtunded, markedly dehydrated, febrile with an axillary temperature
2) A febrile convulsion is defined as a seizure in neurologically healthy infants and children between 6 months to 6 years of age with an axillary temperature
of at least 37.
However the Brighton Collaboration Fever Working Group recommends a body temperature greater than 38C as fever irrespective of device anatomic site age or environmental conditions17 and a WHO expert study group accepts fever as an axillary temperature
measurement of greater than 37.
