Continuous Temperature Monitoring for Earlier Fever Detection in Neutropenic Patients: Comparison with Standard of Care

University Hospitals Seidman Cancer Center

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.

Assessment of Accuracy, Precision, Equivalence, and Agreement of TempTraq® compared to Pulmonary Artery Catheter for Monitoring Temperature in Adults in ICU

Cleveland Clinic

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.

Feasibility of Monitoring of Body Temperature for Patients Undergoing Stem Cell Transplant or Intensive Chemotherapy

University Hospitals Seidman Cancer Center

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.

Continuous Temperature Monitoring In The Inpatient Setting Using Temptraq

Cincinnati Children’s Hospital

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.

Accuracy and Precision of Noninvasive Temperature Monitoring Device Compared to PAC In Adults In ICU

Cleveland Clinic

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.
