About Free Temperature Tracker - log and track your body temperatureWhen you have a fever, keeping a daily record of your temperature with multiple recordings helps you and your doctor determine what is causing the fever and how it can be treated. The pattern of a fever can help suggest the reason for the body's increased temperature. The Temperature Tracker simplifies temperature data logging. The software automatically saves temperature, time, and location of the measurement. In addition to being a convenient data logger the software is also a voluble tool for temperature longitudinal trends analysis. This longitudinal analysis may help you and your doctor decide what is causing the fever and how it can be treated.
- The intuitive interface for data logging.
- Oversized numbers for easy data entry.
- Monitor the changes of temperature over time on the longitudinal graphs.
- The Calendar view shows the average and maximum body temperature day by day. The calendar also marks day's with fever or abnormally low temperature.
- The History display allows one to view all historic data.
- You can save all data into a text file for copying to PC or sharing with your physician.
- You can also save all data into a CSV file (comma delimited text file) for backup, archival, and editing.
- You can edit the CSV file on the desktop PC with Excel, Notepad, or any other text editing software.
- You can load data from the CSV file into the Tracker software.
- The tracker allows switching between temperature units (°F - Degrees Fahrenheit and °C -Degrees Celsius ) at any time.
- The software contains the ranges of normal and abnormal temperatures for different locations of temperature measurements.
Normal TemperatureThe average normal temperature is 37 °C (98.6 °F). The normal temperature varies from person to person. The temperature also changes throughout the day. Normally temperature is lowest in the early morning and rising by 0.5°C (0.9°F) toward the end of the day. The temperature will also rise by as much as 0.6°C (1°F) as a result of exercise. A woman's body temperature also varies by as much as 0.6°C (1°F) through her menstrual cycle, peaking in the middle of the cycle (after ovulation).Abnormal TemperatureAn oral temperature above 37.8 °C (100 °F) or a rectal or ear temperature above 38.3 °C (101 °F) indicates a fever. In most cases, a fever is a part of your body's natural defense against infection. Fever increases your body’'s ability to fight infection. However, in rare cases high fever can induce epileptic seizures. Always call your doctor about a high fever.
If fever is increasingly uncomfortable, you may want to treat fever with cold compress or medications. Cold compress is especially effective on the forehead and around the elbows where major blood vessels are close to the skin. Wrap wet cloth around the elbows, put another wet cloth on the forehead. This method is effective in both adults and children.
In most cases fever does NOT need to be controlled by medications. If you need to lower your temperature, use acetaminophen (Tylenol). Ibuprofen (Advil or Motrin) and Aspirin also reduce temperature but can lead to internal bleeding and/or other unpleasant consequences.
Rectal or ear temperature of less than 36.1 °C (97 °F) indicates an abnormally low body temperature (hypothermia).Please also consider these titles developed for You by MobileReference and SoundTells:TRAVEL GUIDES AND PHRASEBOOKS: New York | Paris | London | Amsterdam | Boston | Miami | Chicago | Greece | Israel | Montreal | National Parks | more... - Search keywords mobilereference and travelMEDICINE: Human Anatomy and Physiology | Human Nervous System | Neurophysiology | Neurochemistry | Biochemistry | Cell Biology | Acupressure Guide | more...- Search keyword mobilereferenceHEALTH: Acupressure Guide | First Aid Guide | Blood Pressure Tracker | Glucose Tracker | Temperature Tracker - FREE | Office Yoga | Sitting Yoga | Headache Remedy | Headache Diary | Hangover Remedy - FREE | Fertility Calendar | Contractions Calculator | Newborn Tracker | Quit Smoking Calculator | Sleep Well (audio) | Meditation (audio) | more...- Search keyword soundtellsDIET: Calorie Burner-Diet Planner | Weight Tracker | Cholesterol Tracker | Cookbook | Cooking Alarm Clock - Search keyword soundtellsSCIENCE: Human Anatomy and Physiology | Human Nervous System | Neurophysiology | Neurochemistry | Biochemistry | Cell Biology | Lightning Distance Calculator - FREE | Scientific Alarm Clock | more...- Search keyword mobilereferenceHISTORY: Art History Guide | American Presidents | World Religions | U.S. History | European History | more...- Search keyword mobilereferenceRELIGION: The World English Bible (Modern Translation) | The Holy Bible (American Standard Version) | more...- Search keyword mobilereferenceSPORTS: Pace Calculator (free) | Gym Journal | Heart Rate Calculator | Chess Guide | Chess Clock | Six Timer | Baseball Ball Speed Calculator | Office Yoga | Sitting Yoga - Search keyword soundtellsHOBBIES AND GAMES: Feng Shui | Chinese Astrology Cookbook | Cooking Alarm Clock | more... - Search keyword mobilereference
