Temperature measurement with an infrared thermometer

Is it Harmful to Health?

Measuring temperature with infrared thermometers is already part of the guidelines for our new scenario. It is a mandatory step to enter various shops and health centers. Regarding the theme, a rumor emerged recently on all social networks that this device could be harmful to health. But, is it really harmful? We invite you to watch the interview we held with Dr. Gisela Acevedo, who is a Pediatric Neurologist at Shriners Hospital and what she had to say on this topic.
