Abstract

When an athlete collapses, it's important to have an accurate assessment of core body temperature as soon as possible to ensure proper treatment. Aural canal temperature is easy to measure with the infrared temperature scanner, but it is unreliable for collapsed athletes. Rectal temperature is not always convenient to measure, but it remains the clinical standard for on-field assessment.
