INFRARED FOREHEAD THERMOMETER
CONTROL PANEL PARTS
|4||Power on/of Button|
NOTE: Read all instructions thoroughly before using this product. The infrared forehead thermometer measures core body temperature, which is the temperature of a body’s vital organs. (See Figure 1) It is specifically designed for safe use on the forehead. It measures body temperature by detecting the intensity of infrared light emitted from the forehead and converts the measured heat Into a temperature reading displayed on the LCD. This product is intended for the Intermittent measurement of human body temperature by people of all ages. When properly used, it will quickly assess temperature In a w timely manner. Figure 1|
WARNING! This product is not intended as a substitute for consultation with a physician.
- Do not allow small children to take their own temperatures unsupervised. There are small parts that can be swallowed.
- Never Immerse In water or other liquids.
- Do not modify this equipment without authorization from the manufacturer.
- Do not expose thermometer to temperature extremes (below -13°F or over 131°F) or excessive humidity (>95%R11).
- Keep the battery away from children.
- Remove the battery from the device when not In operation for a long time.
OVERVIEW OF CONTROLS CONTINUE
|Real-Time Clock||The real-time clock will be recorded with the memory function and help to recognize each measurement result. See the Real-Time Clock Setting section on page 3 to learn how to set time functions before first use.|
|Forehead Mode||Compare the measurement result to regular body temperature. See the Forehead Mode section on page 4 to learn how to measure forehead temperature.|
|Object Mode||The object model shows the actual, unadjusted surface temperatures, which is different from the body temperature. It can help monitor the object temperature suitable for the patient. See the Object Mode section on page 4 to learn how to measure object temperature.|
|Beep Alarm||If the thermometer detects a body temperature > 100.0ºF under forehead mode, there will be a long beep sound followed by three short beep sounds to warn the user.|
|Memory Mode||Stores 10 readings for forehead and object measurements. Each reading also records the measurement date/time/mode icon.|
|ºC / ºF Switch||See Selecting a Temperature Scale section on page 4 to change between Celsius and Fahrenheit.|

SET THE DATE
Press and release the start button to advance one day until the correct month appears. (See Figure 7) Atter the day Is set, press the power on/off button 0 to exit the setting mode.
To ensure that the reading always reflects body temperature accurately, note the following factors that may affect an accurate reading:
- Know each individual’s normal temperature when they are well. This Is the only way to accurately diagnose a fever. To determine normal temperature, take multiple readings when healthy. Re-measure with a standard digital thermometer for confirmation.
- Users and the thermometer should be at the same ambient temperature for at least 10 minutes before taking a reading.
- Users should not drink, eat or be physically active such as bathing, showering, shampooing, and hair drying before/while taking the measurement.
- Oils or cosmetics on the forehead may give a lower temperature reading than the actual one. Remove dirt from the forehead before taking a measurement.
- Do not hold a hand on the forehead for any length of time.
- Do not take temperature over scar tissue, open sores, or abrasions.
- Do not use the thermometer on a perspiring or sweating forehead.
- Do not take a measurement while or immediately after nursing a baby.
- A thermometer is Intended for home and clinical use.
- Do not take temperatures near places that are very hot, such as fireplaces and stoves.
- Do not touch the probe window. The probe window of the thermometer is the most delicate part of the device. The accuracy of the reading may be affected if the probe window is damaged or dirty.
- If the thermometer is stored in a significantly different environment than the testing location, place it in the testing location for approximately 30 minutes prior to use.
- It is not intended for use in oxygen-rich environments or in the presence of a flammable anesthetic mixture with air, oxygen, or nitrous oxide.
SELECTING A TEMPERATURE SCALE
1. Temperature readings are available in the Celsius (°C) or Fahrenheit (°F) scale. (See Figure 8)
2. With the thermometer off, Figure 8 press and hold the start button for three seconds to enter unit changing mode.
3. Press and release the start button to select the unit. When the preferred unit appears on the display, press the power on/off button O to exit unit changing mode.
Press the forehead mode/object mode button i /ft to switch between forehead mode and object mode.
1. Press the power on/off button O. The display is activated to show all segments. After self-checking, the start-up screen appears on the display screen with beeps, indicating that a new measurement can be started. (See Figure 9)
2. Alm the thermometer at the center of the forehead with a distance of 2-3 cm and then press the start button. (See Figure 10)
NOTE: Do not remove the Figure 10 thermometer from the forehead before hearing the final beep. A waiting period of three seconds between testing Is recommended to ensure complete accuracy.
3. Read the temperature on the display.
4. Press the power on/off button O to turn off.
1. The display will turn green for three seconds with a happy face 0 when the unit is ready for measurement and when a measurement Is completed with a reading less than 99.1°F.
2. The display will turn yellow for three seconds with a happy face 0 when a measurement is completed with reading less than 100°F.
3. The display will turn red for three seconds with a sad face 0 when a measurement is completed with a reading equal to or higher than 100°F.
1. Press the power on/off button 0 to turn on the thermometer. Users can take the object’s temperature after two beep sounds. (See Figure 11)
2. Aim the thermometer at the center of the object to measure with a distance of 1-2 cm.
3. Press the start button, and then read the temperature on the display. 4. Press the power on/off button 0 to turn off. Figure 11
1. Device will automatically shut off if left idles for more than one minute to extend battery life.
2. Clean probe after each use to ensure an accurate reading and prevent cross-contamination. See the Care and Cleaning section on page 5 for details.
The memory mode can be accessed in either mode.
1. When the thermometer has been turned on or finished testing, press and hold the power on/off button 0 for three seconds. The letter M will appear in the center-right corner of the display. (See Figure 12)
2. The thermometer will automatically memorize the last 10 temperature readings. Each memory also records the measurement date/time/mode icon. Each time the power on/off button 0 is pressed, the screen displays past readings that correspond with a number 1-10. Number 1 reflects the most recent reading, while number 10 reflects the oldest reading stored in memory. (See Figure 13)
3. In memory mode, the forehead mode mark S and object mode mark * always exist. Users can press the start button to take new measurements.
CARE AND CLEARING
1. Probe window must be kept clean, dry, and undamaged at all times. The accuracy of temperature readings can be affected by damage to the probe window, the presence of dirt, fingerprints, earwax, dust, and other soiling compounds on the probe window. Degraded sensors can reduce performance or cause other problems.
2. Periodic cleaning and disinfection of the device can prevent patient cross-Infection. Clean and disinfect the thermometer immediately after use.
1. Soak a clean, soft cloth In dunking water, wring it out dry and then wipe the thermometer (Including probe) no fewer than three times. 2. Use another clean soft cloth to wipe the thermometer dry.
