La rilevazione dei parametri vitali è un punto cardine nell’assessment del paziente da parte dell’infermiere in emergenza territoriale ma la rilevazione della temperatura corporea non sempre emerge come parametro di riferimento . L’obiettivo di questo studio è indagare attraverso una revisione sistematica della letteratura se nel setting pre-ospedialero avviene la rilevazione della temperatura corporea in modo sistematico e secondariamente se emerge una sede ottimale di rilevazione del dato temperatura.
