- Non-invasive technique: A single-use sensor is placed on the patient\'s forehead before surgery and is worn throughout the perioperative journey
- Accurate core temperature measurement
- Continuous: The temperature is always displayed. A patient temperature trend graph provides two hours of temperature data
- Consistent: The sensor stays on the patient, as it is disconnected from the sensor cable and reconnected at each point of care, eliminating the variability associated with clinician technique and use of multiple monitoring devices
- Compatible with all patient monitors that accept YSI-400 type input

A single use sensor is placed on the patient\'s forehead before surgery and is worn throughout the perioperative journey.
Unlike passive skin surface temperature sensors, the SpotOn system's single-use sensor consists of a thermal insulator adjacent to the skin which is covered by a flex circuit. Once connected to the SpotOn control unit, the flex circuit actively regulates its temperature to create a zone of perfect insulation - a condition where heat loss to the environment is eliminated.
