The TURBO TEMP Electronic Thermometer, Models 218X are electronic thermometers which use a heat-sensing device known as a thermistor to sense temperature. The thermistor is part of the electrical circuit and is located at the tip of the probe.
In Monitor mode, the display is continually updated in response to changes in temperature.
Normal mode, a final temperature is displayed with an audible beep. To obtain this temperature, the probe tip measures the rate of change in temperature when the thermistor comes into contact with surrounding tissue. A final temperature is calculated based on this rate of change.
The Turbo Temp® Thermometer model 2185BX01EE is a wall mount dual probe instrument equipped with a pulse timer. It offers predictive oral and rectal capabilities as well as oral, rectal and axillary measurements in the monitor mode. Model 2185BX01EE comes with security base design for attachment to a wall or other secure location. The 2185BX01EE comes with three AA batteries, an anti-theft security base, backlight, and probe cover dispenser.
