HOW TO USE
1.Remove desired probe from storage bag. Disinfect the probe with isopropyl (rubbing) alcohol before using.
2. Align icon to the front and plug tip into base unit (Figure 1). Tip fits in one direction only.
3.The display will read
with Fever Signal flashing (Figure 1) (Red—Yellow Green). The mode is automatically sensed and will display accordingly. Display will show flashing, indicating the unit is ready for measurement.
4.Place the probe in the appropriate position (oral, underarm, or rectal).
5. Once the degree sign °F (°C) on the display stopped flashing, the correct temperature is indicated and Fever Signal will light up color according to the measured temperature. The temperature reading will not change after the °F (°C) stops flashing.
6. The unit will automatically turn off in 30 seconds (approx.). However, to prolong battery life, it is best to turn the thermometer off by pressing the ON/OFF button once the temperature has been noted.
7. If unit turns off automatically before completing use, depress the ON/ OFF button. Then the operating sequence is the same from step 3 to step 6.
8. To remove tip just pull off of base unit, and store inside the storage bag.
9. Wash tip per cleaning instructions.
Normal Temperature Alarm: An alarm will sound when the peak temperature has registered and is ready-to-read. The “Normal Temperature” alarm (four quick beeps followed by a pause) will sound repeatedly for approximately 5 seconds.
Last-Temperature Memory Recall: When the ON/OFF button is depressed to activate the thermometer, hold down for approximately 2 seconds. The display of 188.8 will change to show the last measured temperature. This reading is displayed as long as the button is held down. When the button is released, the thermometer will be in “ready-to-measure” mode and the recalled temperature will be erased.
For Models with Fever Alarm: If the temperature registers higher than 99.5°F(37.5°C), the fever alarm (a quick beeping sound which occurs continuously for about 5 seconds) will sound when the peak temperature has registered. Also, the result will keep flashing until the thermometer is turned off.
To change the scale from Fahrenheit (°F) to Centigrade (°C): After turning the thermometer on, immediately press the ON/OFF button again and hold until the °F changes to a °C. After releasing the ON/OFF button the display will show an L with a flashing °F or °C. The device is now ready to record and display a temperature. Follow the same directions to switch back from Centigrade to Fahrenheit.
NOTE : Always disinfect the thermometer before using.
NOTE : In Step 2, if the room temperature is greater than 89.6°F(32.0°C), it will be displayed rather than L°F(or L°C).
NOTE: In Step 3, you may put a sanitary plastic probe shield on the sensor tip to help prevent cross-infection and contamination. Use of the probe cover may result in a 0.2°F (0.1°C) difference from actual temperature. Dispose of any used probe shield and store the unit in a safe place.
NOTE : If the tip is not connected securely into base unit, the measuring position will be blank. If the base unit can not sense the probe for 30 seconds, the unit will power off automatically.
RELIABLE METHODS TO MEASURE TEMPERATURE
THE TAKING OF BODY TEMPERATURES: Change in body temperature is one of the most important indicators of illness. It is important that accurate temperatures be taken. Even though the digital thermometer is used in similar manner to the glass thermometer, it is important that the simple instructions for use of this thermometer be followed closely and that the person taking the temperature understands body temperature.
BODY TEMPERATURE: A person’s body temperature will usually be several tenths to one full degree lower in the morning than it is in the late afternoon. Therefore, if your temperature is 97.9°F(36.6°C) in the morning, it could be 98.4°F(36.9°C) or more in the late afternoon and still be normal. To determine what your normal body temperature is you should take your temperature both in the early morning and in the late afternoon over several days. Children have the same normal temperature range as do adults. Afever for both children and adults is typically defined as a temperature over 99.5°F(37.5°C) (oral reading). Exercise, excessive clothing, hot bath, hot weather, warm food and drink can cause mild elevations of up to 100.4°F(38°C) to 101.1°F(38.4°C) in oral temperature. If you suspect one of these to be the cause of an elevated reading, eliminate the possible cause and retake the temperature in a half hour.
Place the probe well under the patient’s tongue. Instruct the patient Sto to keep their mouth closed while the thermometer is reading. A normal temperature by this method is usually considered between FA,” 96.8°F to 99.5°F(36.0°C to 37.5°C).
If rectal temperature is recommended by your doctor, you may use a probe shield. Insert thermometer into the probe shield. Lubricate the probe cover with a water soluble jelly for easier insertion. Do not use petroleum jelly. Insert tip of probe no more than 1/2 inch into rectum. STOP if you meet any resistance. The sensing unit is on the very tip of the probe and there is no need to insert the probe deep into the rectum. In general, the rectal temperature is around 1.0 to 2.0°F(0.5°C to 1.0°C) higher than oral temperature.
AXILLARY USE : Wipe armpit with a dry towel . Place probe in the patient’s armpit and keep the patient’s arm pressed firmly against the body. In general, the axillary temperature is around 1.0 to 2.0°F(0.5°C to 1.0°C) lower than oral temperature. NOTE : Children should be attended by an adult during the entire temperature recording process. After use, the digital thermometer should be stored in a safe place, out of reach of young children. If you compare temperatures between two thermometers, it is possible to have two different readings even if both thermometers are within their accuracy tolerances. Differences in how you take each reading and the thermometer’s tolerance range can account for nearly 0.2°F(0.1 °C) variability.
To clean the thermometer, wash the tips only, wash it with a solution of mild detergent and cool water. Disinfect the thermometer by wiping the sensor and lower stem with a cloth dipped in a household antiseptic solution such as rubbing alcohol.
This thermometer is guaranteed for one year from the date of purchase against manufacturer’s defect under normal, household use. Following the directions closely will ensure years of dependable operation. If the thermometer does not function properly, first check the battery (see battery replacement instructions). Replace it if necessary.
