The Accuracy and Precision of Temperature Measurement
The accuracy and precision of temperature measurement are usually estimate by the error between systemic error and random error. The accuracy and precision of a measuring device(disposable temperature probe) can only improve one item in the general condition, it depends on individual measurements, and the standard is very important.
Under the same measurement condition and use the same measurement tools(Exsense Medical disposable temperature probe) and methods to measure the body temperature for many time. If the measured value of random error is small, this means that the measurement results are small fluctuating. We can know the measuring repeatability is good.
In addition, the temperature ranges of the accidental error reflect the precision of the measurement.
Other problem about the temperature measurement, include the response time, the complexity and convenience of the operation, and the traumatic.
