Accuracy of Measurement of Surface Body Temperature Using the Health e Pod Device (Card Guard) Compared to Gold Standard Equipment
Recruitment status was: Not yet recruiting
Objective To evaluate the accuracy of data acquisition by Health e pod device in measurement of body temperature, to compare it to a standard body temperature measure equipment About 400 consecutive patients admitted to PEU in Assaf Harofeh Medical Center will compile the Study Population.
Basic vital signs will be recorded on admission and during hospitalization as per the PEU policy and not in particular for this study.
As a part of routine check-up all admitted patients undergo body temperature measure (oral or rectal - as per the PEU policy and with PEU devices).
Following an explanation and patient agreement, eligible patients (and their legal guardian) will sign informed consent and enter the study. The health e pod device will be applied to measure body temperature, immediately after the standard temperature measure has been performed by the PEU professional.
