Frequently Asked Questions.

Let the thermometer and individual being measured acclimate to the temperature of the room in which the measurement will be taken. 

The thermometer needs to acclimate to the room temperature for 10 minutes before taking a measurement. 

The individual being measured should be indoors for 30 minutes before taking a measurement. External temperature can impact skin temperature. 

Ensure that the individual’s forehead is prepared for measurement.

Wipe away any sweat with a dry cloth. Sweat can cool skin resulting in a false reading.

Similar to non-contact thermometers, a forehead thermometer is a quick and fuss-free way of measuring a child’s temperature that measures the infrared heat waves emitted thru the surface of the skin.  The main difference is that you need to gently touch the center of the forehead to take a reading.  It is a great choice for young squirmy children that are feeling under the weather. 

Use an alcohol swab or cotton swab moistened with alcohol (70% Isopropyl) to clean the thermometer casing and the measuring probe. Ensure that no liquid enters the interior of the thermometer. Please wait 10 minutes after cleaning before taking a temperature measurement.

Clinical research shows the definition of fever changes as newborns grow into children & children grow into adults. The Age Precision feature takes the guesswork out of temperature taking, allowing you to select the appropriate age setting – 0-3 months, 3-36 months or 36+ months.
