1. An apparatus, comprising:

  • a housing including a bottom surface having a concave shape and an adhesive material disposed on a portion of the bottom surface, the adhesive material operable to removably attach said housing to an individual;

    a first sensor including a first pair of temperature measuring devices and a second pair of temperature measuring devices, the first sensor mounted within said housing, the first pair of temperature measuring devices configured to generate temperature-related data of the individual and the second pair of temperature measuring devices configured to generate near-body ambient temperature data of an area near the individual,the first and second pairs of temperature measuring devices are spaced apart from each other on a printed circuit board disposed within the housing, the first pair of temperature measuring devices are disposed adjacent to each other on opposite sides of the printed circuit board, and the second pair of temperature measuring devices are disposed adjacent to each other on opposite sides of a printed circuit board;

    a second sensor mounted within said housing, said second sensor to generate data related to a change in resistance across the individual'"'"'s skin; and

    a processing unit mounted within said housing in electronic communication with said first and second sensors, said processing unit programmed to use both of said temperature-related data from said first sensor and said data related to said change in resistance across the individual'"'"'s skin from said second sensor to derive analytical status data.
