Question: What is the best way to achieve an accurate reading from my thermometer?
Before having temperature measured, individuals should be indoors for at least 30 minutes.
1. Hold the thermometer flush against the forehead and swipe slowly from above the eyebrow down to the temple, and back again. Swiping too slow or too fast may impact your reading. DO NOT remove the thermometer from the forehead before hearing the final beep. 2. Be sure to wipe away any sweat with a dry cloth. Sweat can cool skin resulting in a false reading. Ensure that the forehead is clean and free from any hair. If you clean the forehead or move hair away from the forehead, wait 15 minutes before taking a measurement. 3. Make sure the individual you are measuring keeps their head still. 4. ALWAYS take the temperature in the same location, since the temperature readings may vary from different locations on the forehead.
