Medical instruments are assessed and compared (supports AQA Unit 8).

This resource features study sheets for two subjects:

  • Fit for its purpose: the key features needed by a clinical thermometer or blood pressure monitor. The generic features required by physiological measuring devices are determined by considering clinical thermometers.
  • Comparing two measuring devices.Students design and carry out an investigation to determine which of two clinical thermometers or blood pressure monitors is better suited to a particular purpose.
