Important safety information
Please consult your doctor if you see symptoms such as unexplained irritability, vomiting, diarrhea, dehydration, changes in appetite or activity, seizure, muscle pain, shivering, stiff neck, pain when urinating, etc. in spite of absence of fever.
The operating ambient temperature range for this thermometer is 10 – 40 °C (50 – 104 °F).
Do not expose the thermometer to temperature extremes (below –25 °C / –13 °F or over 55 °C / 131 °F) or excessive humidity (> 95 % RH). This thermometer must only be used with genuine Braun ThermoScan® disposable lens filters. Other lens filters can lead to inaccuracy.
To avoid inaccurate measurements always use this thermometer with a new, clean, disposable lens filter. If the thermometer is accidentally used without a disposable lens filter, clean the lens after use (see «Care and cleaning»).
Keep disposable lens filters out of reach of children. This thermometer is intended for household use only.
Use of this thermometer is not intended as a substitute for consultation with your physician.
This thermometer must stay in stable ambient (room) temperature for 30 minutes before operating.
Audio fever indicator
Thermometer will signal by beeps normal, elevated or high temperature.
Normal body temperature is a range. It varies by site of measurement and it tends to decrease with age. It also varies from person to person and fluctuates throughout the day. Therefore, it is important to determine normal temperature ranges.
How to use your Braun ThermoScan®
Before taking the temperature, make sure the ear is free from obstructions or excess earwax.
Do not attempt to take the reading without a disposable lens filter on – the measuring sensor must be kept protected and clean from earwax to give accurate readings.
Change the disposable lens filter with each use to ensure hygiene, to keep child safe from cross-contamination and to ensure earwax residues on the disposable lens filter do not impact accuracy of the reading.
Disposable lens filters
Use a clean disposable hygienic lens filter with each measurement:
- To ensure hygienic use
- To protect your child from cross-contamination
- To ensure earwax residues do not impact accuracy of the reading.
Earwax and dirt on the tip of the disposable lens filter, even in microscopic layer, can create an obstacle between the sensor and the infrared heat emitted by the ear and impact the accuracy of the measurement.
Temperature taking hints
- Replace the disposable lens filter with every use to maintain hygiene and accuracy.
- A measurement taken in the right ear may differ from the measurement taken in the left ear. Therefore, always take the temperature in the same ear.
- The ear must be free from obstructions or excess earwax build-up to take an accurate reading.
- External factors may influence ear temperatures, including when an individual has:
– been lying on one ear or the other
– had their ears covered
– been exposed to very hot or very cold temperatures, or
– been recently swimming or bathing.
In these cases, remove the individual from the situation and wait 20 minutes prior to taking a temperature.
- If ear drops or other ear medications have been placed in the ear canal of one ear, take the temperature in the untreated ear.
Care and cleaning
The probe tip (5) is the most delicate part of the thermometer. It has to be clean and intact to ensure accurate readings.
If the thermometer is accidentally used without a disposable lens filter, clean the probe tip as follows:
Very gently wipe the surface with a cotton swab or soft cloth moistened with alcohol. Do not use cleaners other than alcohol on the probe tip. Use of other cleaners could damange the tip.
Once the alcohol has dried completely, a new disposable lens filter can be put on and a temperature measurement taken. If the probe tip is damaged, please contact your authorized local service center.
Use a soft, dry cloth to clean the thermometer display and product exterior. Do not use abrasive cleaners. Never submerge this thermometer in water or any other liquid.
Store the thermometer and disposable lens filters in a dry location free from dust and contamination and away from direct sunlight.
Additional disposable lens filters (LF 40) are available at most stores selling Braun ThermoScan.
Changing the temperature scale
Make sure the thermometer is turned off. Press and hold down the <> button. Keep holding down the <> button and after about 3 seconds the display will start to cycle between temperature scales (°C or °F).
Release the start button when the desired scale is shown. This will reset the thermometer to the new temperature scale.
Replacing the battery
The thermometer is supplied with one 3V Lithium cell battery (type 2032). Insert new battery when the low battery symbol appears on the display.
The battery door design is intended to prevent a small child from easily opening the battery door to address a possible choke hazard. Open the battery compartment by inserting a narrow pointed object such as a ball point pen or paperclip into the small hole above the battery door (8). While pressing into the hole slowly slide back the battery door with the other hand.
To close battery door align the tabs along the side of the battery into the battery compartment and slowly slide back into position until the door clicks into its locked position.
