Abstract
A hand-held device has been designed and tested to allow easy direct temperature readout from a human subject who has swallowed a temperature measuring radio pill. The device is held close to the subject's abdomen and moved about until the optimal auditory signal is obtained. The core temperature of the subject is then read from a dial calibrated in degrees C. Clothing and other equipment such as diving suits, weight belts etc., do not interfere with the reading.
