Progra-Temp Simulation Thermometer from Pocket Nurse
At IMSH 2013 I had a chance to talk with Deborah Coltrane from Pocket Nurse ® about their upcoming PROGRA-TEMP™, medical simulation thermometer! This new programmable thermometer was developed by a Nurse Educator and is now available for pre-orders at Pocket Nurse™, with orders being shipped summer of 2013! Simulation technicians or clinical educators can quickly and easily set two different temperatures, the first of which displays immediately and until the set time duration expires before switching over to the second reading. Instead of placing sticky notes or breaking fidelity in-order to report the patient’s temperature, healthcare simulation labs now have an additional tool in their arsenal to provide direct learner cues!
Deborah explains in the video above how the PROGRA-TEMP™ is:
• Easy to Use
• Ergonomic and Durable Design
• Adds Realistic Assessment Tool to Simulated Learning
• Fahrenheit (or Celsius Mode) Selection from 107 to 95 degrees (F)
• Large LCD Display Screen
• Probe Cover Storage
• Detachable Probe (included)
• Interchangeable Red (rectal) & Blue (oral) Probe Indication Caps
• Easy Access Instructor Control Panel
• Ability to Program into Unit – 2 Temperatures (Initial Assessment & Re-Assessment)
• Uses 3 AA Batteries (not included)
