- The #1 recommended thermometer by Doctor.
When taking temperature from different parts of your body, it is normal to obtain a slight variation in the temperature readings. An ear (tympanic) temperature is usually 0.5-1°F (0.3-0.6°C) higher than an oral temperature, whereas a forehead (temporal) temperature is usually 0.5-1°F (0.3-0.6°C) lower than an oral temperature. Therefore, it is NORMAL to get 1-2°F (0.6-1.2°C) difference between an ear measurement versus a forehead measurement. This is NOT due to the inaccuracy of the thermometer.
Frequently Asked Questions
How to change do celsius?
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. Keep on holding the button until you see the "--- °C/°F" temperature unit on the screen. Let go of the F2 button. The "--- °C/°F" temperature unit will start blinking. Press the F2 button again within 5 seconds to change the temperature unit to your choice.
The temperatures that I see helded on forehead are around 95.5 to 96.5. Is this normal?
That is not normal. We found that 90% of the time, the reason for the low temperature is due to the sensor being dirty. The sensor is extremely sensitive to dirt and oil. Check the sensor regularly. The surface should be reflective and gleaming. If it is dull and lackluster, please clean the sensor with a q-tip cotton swabs (preferably soaked with alcohol) until the sensor is gleaming. Then wait for 10 minutes for the alcohol to fully evaporate before using the thermometer again.
Can this be used for a newborn?
Babies are not as adaptable as adults to temperature change. Premature and low-birthweight babies usually have little body fat and may be too immature to regulate their own temperature, even in a warm environment. Even full-term and healthy newborns may not be able to maintain their body temperature if the environment is too cold. Hence, using a temporal thermometer on a newborn might NOT reflect the true temperature of the baby.
