Temperature monitoring

Abby Morrow-Barnes Staff nurse, Warwick Hospital

A CPD article reminded Abby Morrow-Barnes about the importance of accurate temperature recording

Normal human body temperature is between 36°C and 37.5°C, and is maintained by continuous physiological mechanisms that balance heat production, gain and loss. People in good health maintain a constant body temperature despite environmental variation.
