Description

Maintaining optimum body temperature is essential to life, and taking and recording a patient’s temperature is a fundamental nursing skill. Deviation from the normal range of body temperature can be an important clinical indicator of altered physiological status requiring further investigation. Correct technique and careful recording are important for accuracy because clinicians rely on clinical observations to make diagnoses and decide on treatment. Nurses need to be able to interpret single stand-alone temperature recordings as well as sequential pattern recordings in the context of safe and acceptable physiological boundaries.

Objectives

After reading this module you should be able to:
Describe the factors involved in maintaining body temperature.
Discuss the importance of monitoring a patient’s temperature accurately.
Evaluate the different ways of monitoring a patient’s temperature in relation to evidence-based practice.
Identify patients who are at risk of developing hypothermia or hyperpyrexia, and the actions that can be taken to minimise the risk of these two conditions.
Outline the nursing interventions that can be used to make patients who have an altered body temperature feel more comfortable.
Discuss the link between professional accountability and the accurate recording of clinical observations.
