Q: Does it light up when you turn on? We have one now and use a lot during the night but can't tell if it's on or not to start reading
A: The green backlight will come on when the thermometer takes a reading. Please note though that the red backlight will come on when the thermometer registers low or high readings.
Q: Mine is keep showing l(deg) f…or h(deg) f ?? how do i fix it?
A: You can try recalibrating – simply press the F2 button until you see 888.8 on the screen.
Q: How do you keep the ear probe clean if there are no probe covers?
A: the thermometer does not come with any probe covers. In fact, having the cover will affect the accuracy of its readings. To clean, simply dip a cotton swab in alcohol and swab the sensor. Please make sure that the sensor surface is reflective and gleaming after you have cleaned it. This is important because any dirt and/or oil on the sensor will prevent an accurate reading. Make sure you wait 5-10 minutes for the alcohol to completely evaporate before using the thermometer again.
Q: Does it measure in centigrade too?
A: Dual Mode thermometer can measure temperatures in both Fahrenheit and Celsius. Following are the steps to help you change the unit of measurement:
1. When the thermometer is off, press and hold the F2 button for about 6-9 seconds. The screen will display —” with an “M” at the bottom right.
2. Keep on holding the button until you see the “— C or F” temperature unit on the screen.
3. Let go of the F2 button. The “— C or F” temperature unit will start blinking.
4. Press the F2 button again within 5 seconds to change the temperature to the unit of your choice.
Q: Does this thermometer store previous temperatures?
A: The thermometer can store up to 20 temperature readings. To access the readings stored in memory, simply do the following :
– Press and hold F2 button for about 3-6 seconds until you see “—“M on the LCD display screen
– Press the F2 button again and the screen will display the number “1” with the M signal to indicate the first recorded reading. The recorded temperature will be displayed.
– To recall the next recorded reading, press the F2 button again and the number “2” will the M signal will be displayed, indicating the second recorded reading.
– Repeat to recall earlier recordings.
Q: How do you calibrate this?
A: Clinically calibrated for medical use.
Clinically tested and proven to be reliable and accurate when used in accordance to instructions.
To fix a temperature that is reading incorrectly on a digital thermometer, all you need to do is press the reset button.
With many thermometers, this is just a matter of holding down the power button for a few seconds, but you may have to check with your manual to make certain.
Once you have done this, you can perform the test again and all readings should be correct.
Q: What is the temperature range for this?
A: The forehead temperature mode has a range of between 89.6F – 107.9 F while the ear temperature mode has a range of between 32 F – 212 F.
Q: Does this thermometer alert for low body temperature, i.e. hypothermia?
A: The thermometer will emit 3 short beeps with a red backlight for 3 seconds if the temperature falls below 89.6 F.
Q: I am getting wildly different readings when taking my son's temperature via the forehead. What am I doing wrong?
A: Before taking forehead temperature, please ensure that you remove dirt or hair from the forehead area. With the sensor/probe cover attached, position the thermometer at the center of the forehead, just above the eyebrow. Ensure that the thermometer is in contact with the forehead. Press and release the F1 button. You will hear a beep and the reading will be displayed on the LCD screen. Please bear in mind too that when placed at different points on the forehead, the temperature readings at different points on the forehead will vary. Furthermore, when taking multiple readings you need to make sure that you wait at least 10 seconds between every reading. The thermometer is really sensitive to small changes in temperature and very often repeated use with no pause in between readings will result in inaccurate readings due to heat caused by friction.
Q: Should the forehead and ear reading be different? The ear reading shows at least a degree if not more higher than forehead
A: If you have a baseline temperature for anyone when the are not running a temperature taken in your preferred method any method can be deemed accurate.
the correlation of temperature results are as follows:
The average normal oral temperature is 98.6 F (37 C).
A rectal temperature is 0.5 F (0.3 C) to 1 F (0.6 C) higher than an oral temperature.
An ear (tympanic) temperature is 0.5 F (0.3 C) to 1 F (0.6 C) higher than an oral temperature.
An armpit (axillary) temperature is usually 0.5 F (0.3 C) to 1 F (0.6 C) lower than an oral temperature.
A forehead (temporal) scanner is usually 0.5 F (0.3 C) to 1 F (0.6 C) lower than an oral temperature.
