The motherboard's thermistor recorded a constant value throughout the testing.
This is a bomb-shaped device containing a thermistor at its nose and a spool of thin copper wire attached to a deck unit which records variations in temperature as a function of depth.
When a thermistor or thermocouple wire runs through the catheter, the continuous measurement of urinary bladder temperature is displayed on the digital readout of a monitor.
This is the thermistor that monitors board temperatures.
Clearly, the thermistor in a pulmonary artery catheter that senses the temperature of mixed venous blood provides the best measurement of core body temperature.
In a temperature-compensated crystal oscillator, a thermistor generates a correction voltage to keep the oscillator's frequency more constant.
It consists of a hermetically sealed glass-encapsulated thermistor welded to insulated extension leads.
The accuracy of measuring drive temperature using this method is questionable and I would have preferred the thermistor to be on a lead wire.
Body temperature is therefore most accurately measured by an intravascular thermistor , but measurement by infrared ear thermometry or with an electronic probe in the rectum is an acceptable alternative.
Pulmonary artery temperature is measured with a thermistor located at the tip of a thermodilution catheter.
