    There's a range of solutions from throwing eggs at them and seeing if any start to fry, or putting a thermometer in their mouth and using a telescope to read it
    What are you trying to do

    Do you want to measure a patient's temperature from a distance by infrared
    or do you want to transmit the date from a digital thermometer to a remote point?

    i want how the wireless temperature monitor allowing the status of the patients in different hospital room to be remotely monitored by doctors and nurses. A micro processor is used to watch the patient temperature continously from a remote place. Once the patient temperature exceeds its threshold, the micro processor will raise an alarm and inform. The project will involve RF transmitter/receiver, microcontroller.

    You need to get the data out of the thermometer (probably a serial link)
    Then you need to identify an individual thermometer, either by having a separate channel for each or by tagging the data with an id.
    Then you just need a central receiever/display.

    ps. It's not worth it, the certification/liability costs means that you can't build anything for medical use for less than $<VERY LARGE NUMBER>

    yes

    but i need more information about the sensor , vco , fm modulation .... ect , that used in this case

    So you have an existing wireless data link that you need to interface to?
    Talk to the maker/get the specs, we can;t really help with that
