TEMPERATURE READINGS

Temperature readings vary from person to person. Although there is no one “normal” temperature reading, a temperature, taken orally, ranging between 97°F and 100°F is considered normal. A rectal temperature is generally 1° higher and an underarm (axillary) temperature will be 1° lower.

The best method to determine your own normal temperature is to use the thermometer when you are feeling well. Record your reading twice a day (early morning and late afternoon). Take the average of the two temperatures. This is considered your normal body temperature. Any variation from it may indicate some sort of illness and you should consult your physician.

BEFORE USE

Your VICKS® Digital Thermometer is a 3-in-1 thermometer for oral, rectal, or underarm use. Whichever method is used, it is recommended that for 15 minutes prior to use, avoid eating or drinking any liquids, exercising, taking showers or baths, or smoking.

TEMPERATURE READINGS

Temperature readings vary from person to person. Although there is no one “normal” temperature reading, a temperature, taken orally, ranging between 97°F and 100°F is considered normal. A rectal temperature is generally 1° higher and an underarm (axillary) temperature will be 1° lower.

The best method to determine your own normal temperature is to use the thermometer when you are feeling well. Record your reading twice a day (early morning and late afternoon). Take the average of the two temperatures. This is considered your normal body temperature. Any variation from it may indicate some sort of illness and you should consult your physician.

BEFORE USE

Your VICKS® Speed-ReadTM Digital Thermometer is a 3-in-1 thermometer for oral, rectal, or underarm use. Whichever method is used, it is recommended that for 15 minutes prior to use, avoid eating or drinking any liquids, exercising, taking showers or baths, or smoking.

PROBE COVERS
Disposable probe covers are provided with your VICKS® Speed-ReadTM Digital Thermometer. Place a cover on the probe tip each time the thermometer is used to help prevent contamination. Additional probe covers can be purchased at most drug stores or pharmacy departments.

OPERATING YOUR VICKS® SPEED-READTM DIGITAL THERMOMETER
Press the On/Off button to activate the thermometer. A beep will sound and the display will first show the LCD display test (Fig. 1). After 5 seconds, the display will be in the ready mode (Fig. 2).

OPERATING YOUR VICKS

ORAL USE

ORAL USE
  1. Cover the thermometer’s tip with a probe cover.
  2. Place the probe tip well under the tongue. (Fig. 3) Place sensor tip in areas marked with “”. The mouth should remain closed during the measurement to ensure an accurate reading. Be careful not to bite the thermometer.
  3. When the peak temperature is reached (usually 10-20 seconds), 10 beep signals will sound and the “°F” sign will stop flashing. The temperature is now ready to read and will not change when the thermometer is removed.
  4. Turn the thermometer off by pressing the On/Off button. If you forget to turn it off, the thermometer will automatically turn off after approximately 10 minutes.
  5. Dispose of used probe cover and wash the thermometer as recommended.

UNDER-THE-ARM (AXILLARY) USE
This method is used for babies and young children but less accurate and takes longer.

UNDER-THE-ARM
  1. Wipe the underarm with a towel.
  2. Cover the thermometer’s tip with a probe cover.
  3. Place the probe tip under the arm so the tip is touching the skin and position your arm next to your body (Fig. 4). With a young child, it is sometimes helpful to hug the child to keep their arm next to their body. This ensures that the room air does not affect the probe.
  4. When the peak temperature is reached (usually 20-30 seconds but sometimes longer for this method), 10 beep signals will sound and the “°F” sign will stop flashing. The temperature is now ready to read and will not change when the thermometer is removed. Remember that this method produces a temperature 1° lower than a temperature taken orally.
  5. Turn the thermometer off by pressing the On/Off button. If you forget to turn it off, the thermometer will automatically turn off after approximately 10 minutes.
  6. Dispose of used probe cover and wash the thermometer as recommended.

RECTAL USE
Commonly used for babies, young children, or when it is difficult to take an oral or underarm temperature.

  1. Cover the thermometer’s tip with a probe cover and lubricate with a water-soluble jelly for easier insertion. Do not use a petroleum jelly. Read the label of the lubricant to be sure you are using the right kind.
  2. Lay the patient on his/her side. If the patient is an infant, the proper position for a baby is to lay on its stomach with legs hanging down, either across your knees or at the edge of a bed or changing table. This positions the infant’s rectum for safe and easy insertion of the thermometer.
  3. Gently insert the tip of the thermometer NO MORE THAN 1/2 inch into the rectum. If you detect resistance, stop. Hold the thermometer in place during measurement.
  4. When the peak temperature is reached (usually 10 seconds) 10 beep signals will sound and the “°F” sign will stop flashing. The temperature is now ready to read and will not change when the thermometer is removed.Remember that this method produces a temperature 1° higher than a temperature taken orally.
  5. Turn the thermometer off by pressing the On/Off button. If you forget to turn it off, the thermometer will automatically turn off after approximately 10 minutes.
  6. Dispose of used probe cover and wash the thermometer as recommended.

TO RECALL THE LAST TEMPERATURE
When the thermometer is turned on, continue to hold the button down approximately 2 seconds. The last measured temperature will be shown in the LCD display with the letter “M” shown under the degree sign for approximately 3 seconds, then unit will shut off.

CLEANING INSTRUCTIONS

  • Clean the thermometer by washing with soap and warm water or rubbing alcohol (70% isopropyl alcohol).
  • Wipe dry with soft cloth.
  • DO NOT BOIL OR CLEAN IN DISHWASHER. This will cause the thermometer to no longer function and will void the warranty.
  • Do not wash the unit with any thinner or chemical solvent.

CHANGING THE BATTERIES
The VICKS® Speed-ReadTM Digital Thermometer features a long life, mercury free battery. When the “” appears in the lower right of the display, the battery is exhausted and needs replacing.

  1. Slide the battery cap away from the unit and carefully remove the battery with a non-metallic pointed instrument.
  2. Replace the battery with a 1.55V, L41 alkaline or SR41 silver oxide type or equivalent. Insert the new battery with the positive (+) side facing the display side of the unit.
  3. Carefully slide the battery cap back into place, making sure that the cap is secure to protect the battery compartment from moisture.
  4. Properly discard the old battery. Keep out of reach of young children, elderly and pets.
