Beurer BabyCare BY 11

Important safety information – retain for later use.
In order to make optimum use of all the merits of the clinical thermometer,
you should carefully read the operating instructions before using it, retain
the instructions for later use and also keep them accessible for other
users.

  • The thermometer is intended to measure the temperature of the human body.
  • The BY 11 thermometer is only designed for the measuring area on the human body stated in the instructions for use.
  • Children should not use the thermometer without supervision.
  • Before each use, check the thermometer for signs of damage or wear. Damaged or worn thermometers should not be used.
  • Always wait for the acoustic signal which indicates the minimum time required for measurement. Discuss the temperature with your family physician.
  • The thermometer contains sensitive electronic parts. Therefore, protect it from blows, bending, high temperature or direct exposure to sunlight.
  • This thermometer has a flexible measuring tip to provide greater comfort and safety during measurement, particularly in infants and persons who are asleep or have a reduced level of consciousness. The tip must not be bent more than 90°!
  • Using the thermometer in strong electromagnetic fields such as next to a mobile phone, can cause a malfunction.
  • When the thermometer is switched on, it carries out a self-test. Therefore the accuracy of measurement need not be tested at regular intervals.
  • If the temperature is very abnormal, please contact your family doctor promptly.
  • This device meets the requirements of the EU Directive 93/42/EC concerning medical devices, as well as those of the Medizinproduktegesetz (German Medical Devices Act), the European Standard EN 12470-3: Clinical thermometers – part 3: Performance of compact electrical thermometers (non-predictive and predictive) with maximum device and the European Standard EN60601-1-2, and is subject to particular precautions with regard to electromagnetic compatibility. Please note that portable and mobile HF communication systems may interfere with this unit. More details can be requested from the stated Customer Service address or found at the end of the instructions for use.

Measuring methods:
Temperature measurement in the anus (rectal)
This method of measurement is most reliable and most accurate. Guide the tip of the thermometer carefully 2 to 3 cm into the anus. The measurement time with this thermometer at this site is only about 10 seconds. The end of the measuring time is indicated by an signal tone.

Measurement in the mouth cavity (oral)
For this purpose, guide the tip of the thermometer carefully into one of the heat pouches beneath the tongue, to the left or the right of the root of the tongue.

Measurement of temperature in the armpit (axillary)
This method of measurement is relatively inaccurate. Therefore, it cannot
be recommended from a medical point of view.

Measurement of temperature

Use
Press the On/Off switch to turn the unit on. A short acoustic signal will announce that it is switched on. The thermometer will carry out a self-test for about 2 seconds. During the self-test all segments of the display will be visible. Then “Lo °C (Lo °F)” or the value of the last measurement will appear in the display. Then the reference value of 37 °C (98.6 °F) will appear. Then the flashing symbol “°C” (“°F”) appears and the symbol “Lo” is shown in the display screen. The thermometer is now ready for use. During the measurement, the current temperature is displayed continuously, and the “°C” (“°F”) symbol flashes on and off. The measurement is completed when a stable temperature has been reached. An acoustic signal (10 long beeps) sounds, the “°C” (“°F”) symbol stops flashing and the measured temperature is displayed. So long as the temperature is less than 32 °C (89.6 °F), the “°C” (“°F”) symbol continues to flash and “Lo °C (Lo °F)” is shown on the display. Higher values are displayed directly, e.g. 32.1 °C (89.8 °F). If temperatures over 37.8 °C (100 °F) are measured, a fever alarm (30 short beeps in 10 seconds) sounds. If temperatures over 43.0 °C (109.4 °F) are measured, the symbol for “Hi °C (Hi °F)” appears. The measurement time is very quick compared to conventional thermometers and is only 10 seconds for the rectal measurement. More accurate measurements are possible by extending the measurement time beyond below. The customer or the user of the BY 11 should assure that it is used in such an environment.

Guidance and manufacturer’s declaration – electromagnetic immunity
The BY 11 is intended for use in the electromagnetic environment specified below. The customer or the user of the BY 11 should assure that it is used in such an environment.

Table 2

NOTE 1 At 80 MHz and 800 MHz, the higher frequency range applies.
NOTE 2 These guidelines may not apply in all situations. Electromagnetic propagation is affected by absorption and reflection from structures, objects and people.

  1. a Field strengths from fixed transmitters, such as base stations for radio (cellular/cordless) telephones and land mobile radios, amateur radio, AM and FM radio broadcast and TV broadcast cannot be predicted theoretically with accuracy. To assess the electromagnetic environment due to fixed RF ransmitters, an electromagnetic site survey should be considered. If the measured field strength in the location in which the BY 11 is used exceeds the applicable RF compliance level above, the BY 11 should be observed to verify normal operation. If abnormal performance is observed, additional measures may be necessary, such as reorienting or relocating the BY 11.
  2. Over the frequency range 150 kHz to 80 MHz, field strengths should be less than 3 V/m.

Guidance and manufacturer’s declaration – electromagnetic immunity
The BY 11 is intended for use in the electromagnetic environment specified below. The customer or the user of the BY 11 should assure that it is used in such an environment.

Table 4
Recommended separation distances between portable and mobile RF ommunications equipment and the ME EQUIPMENT or ME SYSTEM The BY 11 is intended for use in an electromagnetic environment in which radiated RF disturbances are controlled. The customer or the user of the BY 11 can help prevent electromagnetic interference by maintaining a minimum distance between portable and mobile RF communications equipment (transmitters) and the BY 11 as recommended below, according to the maximum output power of the communications equipment.

Table 4

For transmitters rated at a maximum output power not listed above, the recommended separation distance d in meters (m) can be estimated using the equation applicable to the frequency of the transmitter, where P is the maximum output power rating of the transmitter in watts (W) according to the transmitter manufacturer.
