In pediatric patients, continuous temperature monitoring can simplify patient care while offering reliable fever detection. This study compared temperature measurements taken with TempTraq to traditional tympanic measurements in 41 pediatric patients. TempTraq measurements were highly correlated to tympanic measurements, and fever detection was consistently sensitive and specific. Additionally, caregivers reported […]
We present a case series of three febrile episodes in neutropenic pediatric cancer patients who wore a Food and Drug Administration approved high-frequency temperature monitoring (HFTM) wearable device (WD) at home.
Fever is an important early sign of serious treatment-related adverse events such as cytokine release syndrome (CRS) caused by chimeric antigen receptor T cell (CAR-T) immunotherapy and such as infection related to chemotherapy induced neutropenia
ABSTRACT Background: Australia has successfully controlled the COVID-19 pandemic. Similar to other high-income countries, Australia has extensively used telehealth services.
Neutropenic fever is a medical emergency in patients (pts) undergoing intensive chemotherapy or stem cell transplant (SCT). Early detection of fever allows for prompt infectious work up and initiation of broad spectrum antibiotics.
Summary: The TOST equivalence test indicates TempTraq® is not equivalent to Pulmonary Artery Catheter. The Bland-Altman test for agreement indicates TempTraq® is in agreement with Pulmonary Artery Catheter and there is an overall bias of .3 between the two measurement systems.
Early detection of fever and prompt use of broad-spectrum antibiotics is crucial in neutropenic patients (pts). Therefore, a continuous real time method of body temperature measurement may serve as a clinical decision support tool to improve outcomes.
Current standard of care (SOC) includes episodic monitoring of temperature in hospitalized patients, which may delay fever detection. Therefore, continuous real-time body temperature measurement may detect fever prior to the current SOC.
The purpose of this study was to assess the accuracy of the TempTraq thermometer as compared to a gold standard (Core temp measured by Pulmonary Artery Catheter) and to assess the precision of the TempTraq thermometer over repeated measures.
