What is axillary temp of oral temp 98.6?

An axillary temperature is typically 0.5°F (0.3°C) lower than an oral temperature. Therefore, an axillary temperature taken as 98.6°F would be roughly equivalent to an oral temperature of 99.1°F.

Do you subtract a degree from rectal temperature?

No. You only add a degree when taking a axial (under the arm) temp. This is because the axial temp is taken externally, so it only gives a close approximation of the body's internal temperature. Since oral temps are taken from inside the mouth, they give you the accurate internal body temperature without having to add anything.

What is the average underarm temperature?

the average underarm is 97.8Add 1 degree Fahrenheit to an axillary or underarm temperature to get actual body temp aka core temp.97.6 under the arm is normal since a 98.6 temp is a normal core temp. Usually a core temp is considered a fever at 100.5 and greater.

Why is rectal temp higher than oral temp?

Rectal temperature is much less influenced by other factors.

Average Body temp for infants?

A normal temperature for an infant is from 97.4-99.4. If an infant's temperature is above 100.4, and the infant is under 6 weeks old; they need to be seen by a health care providor. If a doctor has already told you that you can give Tylenol or Motrin, give that first to see if it brings the temperature down. If it remains above 100.4, you need to bring them in to be seen.

What is the average normal adult oral temp in Celsius?

The average normal oral temperature for adults is around 36.8 degrees Celsius.

What is considered fever if you take it axillary?

True fever is considered >100.3F. Axillary temps. are not very sensitive and should only be used as a starting point. If temp. seems high axillary most physicians will recommend that the temp. be rechecked rectally (if infant) or orally or tympanic if child/adult.

What is the average underarm temperature for a 5 year old?

A child's body temperature is the same as an adult's body temperature. A normal oral temperature is 98.6 degrees. Forehead or underarm temperature is normally one degree less because it is more exposed to the air which results in less than a core-body temperature, so a normal forehead or underarm temp can be around 97.6. Note: A high underarm temp should be re-checked orally to confirm a fever. For example, if a forehead or underarm temp is 100.8, the oral temp is likely 101.8. Rectal temp is sometimes preferred to give a more accurate reading.

How do you know your normal body temperature?

Take your temperature at the same time every day for a week. Use an oral thermometer. Do not test right after you've had anything to drink--hot or cold drinks can temporarily change the oral temp.

What should your body temperature normally be?

Body temperature measurements that are most commonly used are: Axillary (armpit) 97.6 degrees F, oral 98.6 degrees F, and rectal 99.6 degrees F. In Europe it is 37 degrees Celcius under the arm (axillary)

How do you convert C temp to F temp?

To convert Celsius to Fahrenheit, use the formula: F = (C x 9/5) + 32. Multiply the Celsius temperature by 9/5, then add 32 to get the equivalent temperature in Fahrenheit.

What is the temperature difference at rectal oral and under the arms?

Rectal is usually .5c above oral, with under arms being .5c below oral Remember 37C is just an average for oral temp and can change through out the day as well
