Information in this chart was obtained from a multi-year study with more than 90,000 temperatures collected using Exergen temporal artery thermometers at a leading U.S. medical center.2 Values are average patient temperature plus 2 standard deviations, stratified by time. In the study, the across-day average plus 2 standard deviations was 100.4°F (38.0°C), matching the traditional fever definition.
