UCAM donates 60 infrared thermometers to the Murcia Health Service
Devices measure temperature in 30 seconds, no need to contact the patient

The infrared thermometer has become such a popular device in the current situation of the coronavirus pandemic that it is not readily available in the market, not even to supply the professionals of hospitals and health centres that have to take care of patients and, to this end, taking temperature without contact is preferable.

After finding out that the Murcia Health Service (SMS) had this need, UCAM Universidad Católica San Antonio de Murcia has donated 60 of these infrared thermometers, which it acquired through its usual supplier of high health technology for its Health Sciences degrees. These devices measure the temperature in 30 seconds, without having to come into contact with the patient, thus avoiding disinfection tasks.

Other donations

This donation joins those already made by UCAM to the SMS since the beginning of this crisis, such as the donation of 4,000 pieces of protection (surgical gowns, sterile shoe covers and overalls and protective screens) and polypropylene fabric for the manufacture of 25,000 gowns. In addition, 180 students have been mobilised by their UCAM Student Council and the Volunteer Service to take care of people with various needs (accompanying people remotely, helping with food distribution, providing online educational support, etc.).
