As we approach flu season, Exergen Corporation, a global leader in infrared temperature measurement technologies for medical and industrial applications, today published a fever guide. Called ‘Everything you want to know about fever’, this free ebook helps both medical professionals and the general public easily identify the differences between a cold, seasonal flu and COVID-19. The availability of the guide also comes at a time when students are returning to schools and colleges, and businesses across the nation are welcoming staff back to their place of work. Therefore, being able to accurately distinguish between a cold, flu COVID-19 is of paramount importance at a time when both education and the economy are being kick-started after several stagnant months.
‘Fever is a very important early warning signal,’ says Joaquin Azpilicueta, Exergen’s Director of Sales in Europe, Africa and Latin America. ‘Being able to measure the core body temperature of a patient is crucial for both doctors, nurses and at-home users. But what exactly is the core body temperature? And why are the infrared “guns” we see a lot on television these days not able to generate an accurate temperature measurement? Now that large parts of the world are entering the flu season while they are still struggling with the COVID-19 pandemic, it is even more important to understand fever, how to measure fever and also what the differences between the flu and having a cold are. We created this free guide to make it easier to understand those important differences.’
Based on information from the John Hopkins University and other trusted source specialists from Exergen Corporation, the Fever Guide details the differences between a cold, flu and COVID-19, making the eBook an invaluable source of information thanks to its comprehensive information.
