What is sheathed thermometer?




The sheathed thermometer bulb may be introduced into a body cavity for a temperature measurement without any direct contact of the thermometer with the body. After use, the thermometer is unsheathed by turning the sheath inside out so as to cover the portion of the sheath contaminated by contact with the body.
