What is the difference between an oral thermometer and a rectal thermometer?
The tastes differ. An oral thermometer has a longer slender end that's inserted (into the mouth), compared to a rectal thermometer that has a short bulbous end inserted (into the rectum). The bulb reduces the chance of tearing the rectal wall, especially in infants. Some digital models have a setting for rectal vs. oral on the unit. The rectal temperature is known to be a little warmer and more accurate to body temperature. If you still have a glass and mercury thermometer, be aware that mercury is a deadly toxin, and consider replacing the thermometer with a digital model.
No. Usually there is about a degree difference with the rectal temperature being about 1 degree higher.
The three types of thermometer are oral, rectal and tympanic. The most reliable is the rectal thermometer.

An oral thermometer is used for in the mouth and usually under the tongue. A rectal thermometer is used for taking your temperature from your rectum/bottom. They will be label in your grocery store or pharmacy whether there intended for your mouth or rectum.
#1: Inserting a rectal thermometer into the mouth #2 Inserting an oral thermometer into the rectum #3 Not thoroughly cleansing the thermometers after each use
Places where you can assess body temperature includes: forehead - strip temples ear canals underarms oral rectal - special rectal thermometer The most common place is an oral temperature reading. Rectal temperature is always 1 degree higher than the oral temperature.
Why is there such a difference between oral and rectal temperature in my son...orally he is almost always normal or low grade then rectal it is 101-102 degrees?
Rectal is more accurate because it takes the core body temperature.
Yes but be sure to only insert it 1/2 an inch Because it will not be marked
eeew! wash it first though! will it work efficiently?i just took it out ofthe wrapper so it didn't need to be washed 1st lol
Rectal is usually .5c above oral, with under arms being .5c below oral Remember 37C is just an average for oral temp and can change through out the day as well

Depending on what degrees you are talking about ... A normal thermometer can measure 100 °F - as can an oral or rectal thermometer. A cooking thermometer can measure 100 °C Cryogenic thermometer can measure 100 K. A protractor can measure 100° (depending on the type - they can measure from 0° to 180° or a full 0° to 360°)
Rectal temperatures really aren't used that much in health care anymore because it's too invasive, and in infants inserting a rectal thermometer can damage the mucosa of the rectum. While it is the most accurate temperature, it's much better to use an oral thermometer, or one of the new temporal ones that simply go on the forehead. Also you said it was a glass thermometer, I'd be careful if it was very old because it… Read More
rectal is higher ;axillary is lower

Rectal temperature is higher than axillary and oral temperature.
Rectal temperature is much less influenced by other factors.
rectal, scrotal, and oral
digital thermometer is the best way to take temperature of newborn axillary temperature taking has advantage over rectal(rectal temperature taking is contraindication in infant less than one month or premature)oral temperature(oral temperature is contraindicated for child less than 2 year old) and tympanic tempereture(tympanic temperature is contraindicated in draining ear or premature infant of small ear canal).
oral and verbal both are same...
Oral is spoken and written is read
Oral Thermometer When people think of a thermometer, they may think of the traditional glass thermometer placed in the mouth. Today, most oral thermometers are digital and made of some sort of plastic. These are used by placing the thermometer under the tongue and waiting for the alert that the reading is complete. Some oral thermometers can also be used as rectal thermometers. Tympanic Thermometer Tympanic thermometers are used by inserting the thermometer into the… Read More
Aural has to do with the ear and hearing. Oral has to do with the mouth.
Oral is given by speaking, written is given in writing
it depends on what kind of medication it is, if its to treat something in the rectal area, it could be oral. but rectal typically means it is put into your anus. (in other words, up your rump) *the moar you know*

Rectal temperature is the most accurate, however how many of us want to have it taken that way? Also, this method does have a slight chance for injury to the rectum or of losing the thermometer into the rectum. Next best is oral temperature. To take an oral temperature, which is almost as reliable when done correctly, make sure the person has not had anything to eat or drink within the last 10 minutes. Place… Read More

you axillary temp is not as accurate as your oral or rectal temp.
How should the thermometer be inserted when taking a oral temperature using an electronic thermometer?
under the tongue to the side of the mouth
There are a few different types of thermometers and a few different ways body temperature can be taken: - A tympanic thermometer measures the body temperature by taking a reading from the tympanic membrane in the ear. - The old mercury thermometers aren't used anymore, the risk of them breaking is too high. - Digital thermometers are about 15cm long and can measure oral, axillary or rectal temperature. They have plastic coverings to go over… Read More
Oral communication has no proof that it happened. Written one has an evident proof of its happening.
"Although rectal measurement most accurately reflects core body temperature, the theoretical risk of bacterial translocation during the procedure of inserting the thermometer into the anus (particularly in the child with mucositis) is a contraindication, and therefore oral or axillary measurements are recommended." source: "Fever and neutropenia in pediatric patients with cancer." Emerg Med Clin North Am. 2009 Aug;27(3):525-44.
No, you should subtract a degree to get a temperature equivalent to an oral reading.
Axillary,rectal,tympanic,or temporal method
paramecium prefer anal stentor prefer oral
A translator is written translation. And an interpreter is an oral translation.
Only the tip with the temperature sensor needs to be inserted, which is about 1cm on most thermometers. Most health care professionals no longer recommend using the rectum for taking a temperature. If you were to accidentally insert the thermometer too far or if your baby gets very squirmy, while taking, for example - you could perforate your baby's rectum. If your doctor requests a rectal temperate never insert the thermometer more than 1 inch… Read More
Cats body temperature is 38-39 °Celsius. WHO TO TAKE TEMPERATURE: This is done rectally using a rectal or oral thermometer either digital or mercury. Ear thermometers can also be used in cats. They are generally fast and easy but it is essential to use a proper technique to obtain an accurate temperature reading.
ear, oral, axillary or rectal are locations it can be measured
Both are fungal infections of the oral cavity, the only difference lies within regional differences in spelling. "Candidosis" is more commonly used in the UK and Europe, whereas "candidiasis" is used more often in the United States.
No, this varies from person to person, but is within +/- 0.5 degrees celcius of this figure. In fact, the temperature reading on a medical thermometer may vary depending on where the reading is taken. For example, an auxiliary (armpit) reading will give a lower temperature reading then a rectal reading, just as an oral reading will be different to a temporal reading.
Feeling the ears, nose or head is not considered a reliable method; you have to determine your dog's internal temperature to find out for certain. This is done using an oral or rectal thermometer, either digital or mercury. Ear thermometers can also be used in dogs. They are generally fast and easy but it is essential to use a proper technique to obtain an accurate temperature.
You can check, yourself (but please use two different thermometers). Rectal temperature is 1 degree F warmer than oral temperature. WebMD has a good page...see the link below.
Oral means related to mouth. Any cancer of the mouth comes under the oral cancer. The throat is part of the mouth cavity. It has got specific location in your mouth.
