Ideal for young children and adults, the digital ear thermometer provides accurate and rapid temperature readings from the ear over the range of 34.0 to 42.2°C. The ear thermometer measures the infrared heat created by the eardrum and surrounding tissues, converting this temperature into an oral equivalent. The unit incorporates a memory recall function – last nine readings. Each digital ear thermometer is supplied with 20 replaceable probe covers that help to avoid cross-contamination. The ear thermometer is powered by a CR2032 lithium coin cell battery (supplied). This product conforms to ASTM accuracy standards and is supplied with comprehensive instructions to assure correct readings are obtained. Failure to straighten the ear canal may lead to an incorrect reading. The ear canal is not identical in each ear and this can result in a slight difference in some individuals. It is therefore imperative to straighten the ear canal prior to taking a reading. For children under 2 years old, gently pull the ear back. User technique is critical. Before using the Infrared Ear Thermometer, it is important you make sure that the ear and thermometer are clean. Dirt or ear wax built up inside the ear, can cause an inaccurate reading. Always use a new and undamaged probe cover. Ensure that the person whose temperature is being measured is in a stable temperature environment (ambient temperature 15 – 35 °C) for 5 minutes and has not been doing any strenuous activity, as this can cause the temperature of the body to increase, resulting in a misleading reading. The thermometer also needs to be in a stable temperature environment for 15 minutes to adapt to the surrounding temperature and give accurate readings.
