Figure 1The 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 timely manner.

Stop

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 manufacturer.

TEMPERATURE-TAKING HINTS

To ensure that the reading always reflects body temperature accurately, note the following factors that may affect an accurate reading:

  1. 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.
  2.  Users and the thermometer should be in the same ambient temperature for at least 10 minutes before taking a reading.
  3. Users should not drink, eat or be physically active such as bathing, showering, shampooing and hair drying before/while taking the measurement.
  4. 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.
  5. Do not hold a hand on the forehead for any length of time.
  6. Do not take temperature over scar tissue, open sores or abrasions.
  7. Do not use the thermometer on a perspiring or sweating forehead.
  8. Do not take a measurement while or immediately after nursing a baby.
  9.  Thermometer is intended for home and clinical use.
  10. Do not take temperatures near places that are very hot, such as fireplaces and stoves.
  11. 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.
  12. If thermometer is stored in a significantly different environment than testing location, place it in testing location for approximately 30 minutes prior to use.
  13.  It is not intended for use in oxygen rich environments or in the presence of flammable anesthetic mixture with air, oxygen or nitrous oxide.

SELECTING A TEMPERATURE SCALE

  1. Temperature readings are available in the Celsius (ºC) or Fahrenheit (ºF) scale. (See Figure 8)
    Figure 8
  2. With the thermometer off, 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.
