Main points before measurement
Main points during measurement
- Blue sensor – Left Carotid Artery (LCA)
- Green – Right Carotid Artery (RCA)
- Yellow – Left Axillary Crease (LAC)
- Violet – Right Axillary Crease (RAC)
- Red – Abdominal area (ABD)
Color fields below the temperature figures of each area can change their color from red to yellow and then to green. At the beginning of the measurement indicators are red. After 30 seconds the program proceeds to analyze the temperature stabilization. As the temperature is about to stabilize, the color indicators vary from yellow to green. Pure green color means the temperature on the sensor is stabilized: temperature figure is not changed by more than 0.15 C.
RCA-LCA– indicator of the difference between left and right carotid artery bifurcation temperatures;
RAC-LAC - indicator of the difference between left and right axillaries’ temperatures.
Indicators RCA-LCA and RAC-LAC show the temperature difference between bifurcation points of left and right carotid arteries and between left and right armpit accordingly. The difference should not exceed 0.5 C.
These are two main indicators by which a doctor may decide to complete the measurement, or to continue the measurement on a larger interval.
If the difference does not exceed 0.5C and temperature of the sensors (including sensor of abdominal area!) stabilized, the indicator is green, otherwise - red.
Sometimes the difference can be bigger than 0.5C. But it is typically for special pathologies, which are described during training courses. In such situation, a doctor need ensure that all sensors are right placed or even replace them. Then he/she makes one more measurement and recommends proper special tests and examinations (as confirmation) in case both received results are similar.
