Abstract: Let and denote the modified Bessel functions of the first and second kinds of order In this note we prove that the monotonicity of on for all is an almost immediate consequence of the corresponding Turán type inequalities for the modified Bessel functions of the first and second kinds of order Moreover, we show that the function is strictly completely monotonic on for all At the end of this note, a conjecture is stated.
