Do You Add a Degree When Taking Temperature?


A degree should not neccessarily be added when taking a persons temperature. There are three methods for temperature taking, axillary, oral, and rectal. Axillary is general 1 degree lower than the oral temperature, and 2 degrees lower than rectal. On small infants, rectal temperature is the preferred method.

You will not have to add a degree when taking a temperature. This is unless, the temperature was taken via the underarm.
