Dear all, I am finally breaking down... while in favor of rectal temps in < 36 months old... I don't feel like having to re-invent the wheel: who of you do tympanic temps in your ED - do you have good literature support? - and how many of you are in support of rectal temps? I thought we had cleared that issue for once and for all - but I guess not! Would you please give me your input?
Thank you so
