Preparation Instructions

To use: Important: Clean thermometer before and after each use. If thermometer has been in a cold environment, allow it to warm to room temperature (about 15 minutes) before use. Avoid storing at temperatures above 140 degrees F. Position Thermometer: For Rectal Use: Lubricate the tip with water-soluble jelly such as K-Y. For easier insertion, position baby so his back and legs form a 90-degree (L-shaped) angle. Try placing child on your lap with his legs down, or lay him on a bed or changing table using a small pillow to raise his hips slightly. Spread the buttocks with one hand while using the other to gently insert the thermometer tip into the rectum never more than 1/2 inch. The guard above the tip is designed to help prevent over-insertion. Never force the thermometer. Hold it gently in place until reading is complete. Important For sanitary reasons, once this thermometer has been used for a rectal reading, do not use it for an oral reading. For Underarm Use: Place sensor tip in the very center of the underarm next to bare skin (skin should be clean and dry). Hold your child's arm close to his body. Slide thermometer into the center of the underarm. For Oral Use (Older Child): Place thermometer under child's tongue (slightly to the left or right) as far back as comfortably possible. Instruct your child to keep his lips closed during the reading. Take Temperature: 1. Remove thermometer from protective cover. 2. Press the on/off button once. You will hear one quick beep. Thermometer will display standard pretest 188.8 degree. Position sensor tip as described above. 3. Hold thermometer in place until it beeps again and display stops flashing (about one minute). 4. You may read temperature before or after removing thermometer (see Digital Display below). 5. Press and release the on/off button to turn the thermometer off. (If you forget, it will turn off automatically in about 10 minutes.) Reminder: Clean thermometer before placing it back in cover. See instructions below. Memory Recall: To display last recorded temperature, press and hold the on/off button for 2 seconds. Last recorded temperature will display. The Digital Display: Underarm Reading: An underarm temperature will be about one degree lower than a temperature taken orally. To calculate oral equivalent precisely, add 0.9 degrees F (0.5 degrees C) to the display from the display. L indicates a reading is below 90.0 degrees F. H indicates a reading above 109.9 degrees F. 188.8 degrees is a normal pre-test display. Indicates battery needs to be changed. ERR indicates thermometer is malfunctioning and should be replaced. Range: 90.0 - 109.9 degrees F. Accuracy: Accuracy is plus (+) or minus (-) 0.2 degrees F between 96.0 degrees F and 106.0 degrees F. For the remainder of the range, accuracy is plus (+) or minus (-) 0.5 degrees F. Operating Temperature: 50 to 104 degrees F. Storage Temperature: -13 to 140 degrees F, humidity of 15% to 95% (noncondensing). To Clean: Wipe surface with a damp cloth or sponge using mild liquid soap. Wipe with clear water. Wipe dry or air dry. Do not immerse in water. To sterilize sensor tip and contoured base: Wipe with soft cloth or cotton ball or swab that has been dampened with isopropyl alcohol. Wipe dry. To Replace Battery: If display is unclear, or blank, battery needs to by replaced. Use a GP392 or SR-41 silver oxide battery, or the equivalent. 1. Insert a pointed object into safety tab hole to release battery compartment cover. 2. Use a toothpick or insulated probe to remove the battery. Avoid using any sharp metal object. Be sure to dispose of battery properly (see Warning below). 3. Insert new battery, with + side facing up and - side facing down. 4. Replace cover and snap into place.

Safety Warning
For best results, please read all instructions carefully before using. This product is designed to measure human body temperature. Do not use it for any other purpose. This product is not a toy. Do not allow child to play with it. Adult supervision is required in the use of this product. Do not drop the thermometer or expose to heavy shock. The unit is not shock proof. Performance may be degraded after shock. Performance of the device may be degraded if operated or stored outside stated temperatures and humidity ranges or the patient's temperature is below the ambient (room) temperature. Swallowing the battery, if it is dislodged, could be fatal. Do not allow your child to bite, hit, or remove, the battery cover. Keep batteries away from children. Parents are urged to exercise care in the storage, use, and disposal of all batteries. Do not dispose of battery in fire, it may explode. Do not attempt to recharge battery. To Avoid Battery Leakage: Be sure to insert battery correctly following instructions; Always remove exhausted battery from the product; Be sure to position + and - symbols as indicated in battery compartment; Never use a screwdriver or any other tool to pry battery from compartment as doing so may short circuit supply terminals; The supply terminals are not to be short circuited. Fever Facts: Remember: Fever itself is a symptom, not an illness. It is a sign of the body's effort to fight an infection - a healthy response of the immune system. The majority of fevers will not need antibiotics or other treatment. In children, a high fever can occur suddenly, and even a low fever can sometimes be dangerous. It's a good idea to take a benchmark reading when your child is well and you can both feel comfortable doing it. Ask your health care provider what thermometer reading you should consider high for this particular child, and what steps are to be taken. Observe your child carefully. The way she acts is often more important than her actual temperature. Watch for lethargy, irritability, and lack of appetite. When talking to your child's doctor, be sure to mention: 1. How temperature was taken (orally, rectally, or under the arm) 2. What thermometer reading actually was; and 3. What kind of thermometer you used. This product is not a toy. Do not allow children to play with it. For home use only,
