Why do you measure the temperature in the ear?
An ear thermometer measures the infrared heat emitted by the eardrum and tissues of the ear. Measuring the temperature in the ear is a good way to reflect the body's core temperature because the eardrum shares blood circulation with the control center of the brain, the hypothalamus. Therefore, changes in body temperature appear earlier and more accurately in the ear than elsewhere.
