DIRECTIONS FOR USE

  1. Wipe or dip the thermometer probe with isopropyl alcohol to disinfect.

2. Depress the ON/OFF button. A tone will sound as the screen displays

HOW-TO-USE

The screen will then display the last recorded temperature, and will then be in measurement mode..

3. Position thermometer in desired location (mouth , rectum, or underarm) as described in following paragraphs.

Oral Use:

Oral Use

Place the probe under tongue as indicated by “” position shown in Figure 2. Close your mouth and breathe evenly through the nose to prevent the measurement from being influenced by inhaled / exhaled air. Normal oral temperature is approximately between 96.3°F and 99.1°F (35.7°C and 37.3°C).

Rectal Use: If using a probe cover to help prevent cross infection and contamination, insert thermometer probe into the probe cover, then lubricate the probe cover with a water soluble jelly for easier insertion. Do not use petroleum jelly.

Note: Use of the probe cover may result in a 0.2°F (0.1°C) difference from actual temperature. If not using a probe cover, lubricate the probe with petroleum jelly. Insert probe no more than ½ inch (1 cm) into rectum. Stop if you meet any resistance. The sensing device is on the tip of the probe and there is no need to insert the probe deep into the rectum. Normal rectal temperature is approximately between 97.2°F and 99.9°F (36.2°C and 37.7°C).

Underarm Use (Axillary): Wipe underarm dry. Place probe under arm and keep arm pressed firmly to side. Normal underarm temperature is approximately between 95.4°F and 98.1°F (35.2°C and 36.7°C). Note: From a medical point of view, underarm method provides inaccurate measurements, and should not be used if precise measurement is required.

4. The degree sign flashes throughout the measurement process. When measurement is complete, the alarm beeps for approximately 10 seconds, the degree sign stops flashing, and the correct temperature is shown. The temperature measurement will continue to display once the alarm has stopped, the degree sign has stopped flashing, and the thermometer is moved from measurement location.

Note: If the measured temperature is less than 90°F (32°C), the screen will display Lo;
If the measured temperature is greater than 109.9°F (42.9°C), the screen will display Hi.

5. The thermometer will automatically turn off in approximately ten minutes. To prolong battery life, turn the thermometer off by pressing the ON/OFF button once the temperature has been noted.

Normal Temperature Alarm: When the peak temperature has registered, the “Normal Temperature” alarm (evenly spaced beeps) will sound for approximately 10 seconds.
Fever Alarm: When the peak temperature has registered higher than 100.0°F (37.8°C), the fever alarm (quick beeps) will sound for approximately 10 seconds.
Automatic Last Temperature Recall: When the ON/OFF button is pressed to activate the thermometer, the display will change to show the last measured temperature value, then enter measurement mode.
Fahrenheit and Celsius Switchable: To switch Fahrenheit or Celsius mode: with the unit off, press and hold the ON/OFF button for approximately four seconds.
Note: Always disinfect the thermometer before use.
Note: When finished, dispose of any used probe shield and store the thermometer in a safe place.
