A thermometer is a vital piece of home healthcare equipment. It is used to check a person’s internal body temperature; when their temperature becomes elevated past a certain point, they are running a fever. Fevers tend to indicate the presence of an illness beyond a common cold, such as a flu or an infection. By tracking your family’s internal temperature, you can identify when a family member has a fever, whether they are successfully fighting the illness, and when to consult a doctor.
