Esophageal Temperature ProbesRegister Today!
- by dolanra Aug 2Hi All,
My hospital is getting ready to implement therapeutic hypothermia and I was wondering if anyone has good educational resources re: esophageal temperature probe placement. Our OR utilizes a Level 1 Acoustascope Esophageal Stethoscope with a temperature sensor on the end of it, but no one seems to know of a good way to ensure proper placement. Any suggestions are appreciated!
