Title: (EN) Electronic clinical thermometer, method of controlling the same, and control program
Abstract: front page image
(EN)

An electronic clinical thermometer having a low frequency of errors can be implemented. The electronic clinical thermometer for predicting an equilibrium temperature based on a temporal change in the actual measurement value of a temperature at a measurement target detected by a temperature detection element includes an abnormal change detection unit which detects an abnormal change of an actual measurement value from the temperature detection element, and a control unit which controls the start timing of a temporal change in actual measurement value used for derivation of a prediction value when the abnormal change detection unit detects an abnormality.
