With the ongoing campaign to eliminate mercury contents from medical devices, the use of digital thermometer in measuring the body's temperature continues to grow.
In July 2007, the European Union banned mercury in non-electrical measuring devices, such as thermometers and barometers. Since April 2009, glass thermometers with mercury are no longer available for purchase in the UK. The directive is part of the Directive 2007/51/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council, which restricts the marketing of certain measuring devices containing mercury. In the US, there are also regulations and efforts by concerned groups which resulted to many hospitals to stop using medical devices that contain mercury.
Mercury is a silvery-white metal element that is usually found on fever thermometers. It is still widely used throughout the world. However, because of the health effects of mercury exposure, industrial and commercial uses are regulated in many countries.
Digital thermometers are battery-operated devices that accurately measure an individual's body temperature. It can display temperatures in Fahrenheit or Celsius, or both in a dual scale thermometer. To date, digital thermometer is the preferred method of measuring body temperature among home users because it's convenient to use and delivers accurate results.
