To clean the thermometer, wash the tip with a solution of mild detergent and cool water. Disinfect the thermometer by wiping the sensor and lower stem with a cloth slightly dampened with a household antiseptic solution such as rubbing alcohol.
BODY TEMPERATURE FACT
THE TAKING OF BODY TEMPERATURES:
Changes In body temperature are one of the most significant indicators of illness. It is essential that accurate temperatures be taken. even though the digital thermometer is used Ina similar manner to the glass thermometer, it is important that these simple instruction for use be followed closely and that the person taking the temperature understands body temperature.
A parson’s body temperature will usually be several tenths to one full degree lower in the morning than it is in the late afternoon. Therefore, II your temperature is 97.88°F (26.60.C) in the cloning, it could be 98 /TS (369TC) or more in the late afternoon and still be normal. To determine what your normal body temperature is you should take It both In the early morning and in the late afternoon over several days. Children have the same normal temperature range as do ad.. A fever for both children and adults typically defined as a temperature over 98.50.F (37.60tC), oral reading. Exercise, excess. clothing, hot bath, hot weather or warm food and drink can cause mild elevations of up to 100.40 to 1121.12°F (28.00 to 36.00°C) In oral temperature. If you soaped one of these to be the cause of an elevated reading, eliminate the possible cause and retake the temperature Ina half hour,
HOW TO USE
- First remove the thermometer from its clear plastic protective cover and disinfect the probe with rubbing alcohol before using.
- Press and release the ON/OFF button. The display will read @88h or Fever Flash® colors will flash (Red > Orange > Green).
3. The display will first show the most recent temperature reading (memory) then an L°F or L°C. Next the °F or °C begins flashing along with dashes that flash across the display.
4. Place the probe in the appropriate position (oral or rectal).
5. Once the °F (°C) on the display has stopped flashing, the correct temperature is indicated and the Fever Flash® color will light according to the measured temperature. See color chart
5. The temperature reading will not change after the °F (°C) stops flashing.
6. The unit will automatically turn off in approximately 30 seconds. However, to prolong the battery life, it is best to turn off the thermometer by pressing the ON/OFF button once the temperature has been noted.
Place the probe well under the patient’s tongue with the probe sensor in the “heat pocket” (see diagram). Instruct them to keep their mouth closed while the thermometer is reading. You may find it necessary to hold the unit in place while it is reading so you do not bite the probe. A normal temperature by this method is usually considered between 96.8°F to 98.9°F (36.0°C to 37.2°C1.
- Although this thermometer identifies a fever as 99.5°F and above, a temperature of 99.0° is a potential fever for individuals that have a normal temperature range of 97° to low 98° REMEMBER: It is very important to find YOUR normal temperature and watch for changes.
Normal Temperature Alarm: An alarm will sound when the peak temperature has registered and is ready-to-read. This “Normal Temperature” alarm (four quick beeps followed by a pause) will sound repeatedly for approximately 5 seconds.
Temperature Memory Recall: When the unit is off, press and hold the ON/OFF button until ‘bt’ displays. Again press and hold until the most recent memory reading is visible. Continue to press and release to view additional memories. Memory readings show from the most recent to the oldest ar1,1 include the memory number and corresponding temperature (see example 1). If there are no memories stored in the thermometer, the LCD shows ‘non’ (see example 2).
Fever Alarm: If the temperature registers 99.5°F (37.5°C) or higher, an alarm will sound when the peak temperature has registered. The alarm is a quick continuous beeping sound that lasts approximately 8 seconds. For Switchable Fahrenheit and
Centigrade Models: You can switch the mode from Fahrenheit to Centigrade (or C to F) within 2 seconds of turning on the thermometer. After turning it on, immediately press and hold the ON/OFF button until you hear a beep and see the For C change.
Switch the display mode (right-handed or left-handed): After turning on and while the °F or °C is flashing, press and hold the ON/OFF button until the °F or °C turns upside down then release. This enables you to switch the display from right-handed to left-handed or vice versa. The display will remain in RH or LH mode until it is changed again or until the battery is removed and replaced. Default mode is right-handed.
User can record all memories on their Bluetooth 4.0 mobile device with the application software located on the OUcare website. For more complete information, visit http://www.oucare.com/products-cbt.html

Read-back memories & write-in setting via Bluetooth 4.0
When the thermometer is off, press and hold the ON/OFF button until ‘bt’ shows, then release. The LCD will display ‘bt’ with a small dash flashing clockwise in sequence (see example below). The thermometer is now ready for data transmission to your mobile device via Bluetooth 4.0.
Note: the unit will automatically power off after 30 seconds of inactivity.
Once the Bluetooth connection is made, the LCD will display con. Your Bluetooth device will automatically sync-up with the thermometer, after which the LCD will display the date and time. Date format is MMDD, the time does not indicate AM or PM. Example 1: the date is December 23 and the time is 3:16. Example 2: after sync-up is complete, the thermometer will begin writing-in to your mobile device.
