Description: Caption:
This 2005 photograph depicted a woman who was reading the results on a modern, battery-powered oral thermometer, in order to measure her body temperature. She was also recording the reading, by writing down the value on a medical record. In order to return an accurate reading, this particular type of thermometer needed to be placed beneath the user’s tongue, for a set amount of time, beeping when the ambient, sublingual temperature was reached.
