I swear it was just Spring a moment ago and now we are back to winter temperatures. During this this time of year in Michigan it is important to check frequently to determine what to wear on a daily basis. It can be warm enough to wear a short sleeve shirt one day and the next day you will be looking for your winter coat, hat and scarf because it is snowing. I have tulips that are starting to come up, but it also may snow this week. Weather in Michigan is truly anything, but predictable.
Monitoring temperature is important for us to forecast the temperature outside, it's also important in the Central Sterile Department. Unlike predicting the outdoors in Michigan, there are tools to help CS professionals manage room temperature through temperature monitoring products. These products are critical to use during reprocessing, monitoring surrounding temperatures and to keep you safe from extreme temperatures.
