Caution
1. The body temperature measured in the ear may differ
from measurements taken under the armpits, in the
mouth, or in the rectum. Therefore, comparing them will
not be of value. Take temperature readings periodically
to determine the normal ear temperature measurement
with this instrument, then use that reading as the basis
for comparison with any measurement taken when you
suspect a fever.
2. Do NOT use this thermometer for measurements other
than as specified. This thermometer is designed for ear
measurement. Room temperature and material surface
temperature readings are approximate and are only for
reference.

About Ear Thermometers
All objects radiate heat. To measure body temperature, this
ear thermometer uses an infrared sensor incorporated in
its probe to detect the heat radiated from the eardrum and
the area around it. In general the ear canal (external auditory
canal) of an infant is relatively straight.
As we grow older, it takes on some curvature, as shown
in Fig. 2. It is important to point the probe lens of the ear
thermometer toward the eardrum and its periphery inside
the ear. To straighten the ear canal, gently pull on the outer
ear in the direction of the rear of the head, as shown in Fig.
3. Each ear canal has a slightly different shape, be sure to
check it before taking temperature readings. Insert the probe
straight into the ear canal, as shown in Fig. 4.
Fig.2
Fig.3
Fig.4
Caution
1. A person’s left and right ear canals are not necessarily
symmetrical. This may cause different measurement
results. Always take temperature readings in the same
ear.
2. A soiled probe lens will result in inaccurate measurement.
Be sure to check that the probe lens is clean before use.
3. Body temperature rises after vigorous exercise, a bath or
shower, or eating. Wait at least 30 minutes before taking
temperature readings.
4. Do NOT use the ear thermometer when the ear canal is
wet (after swimming, bathing, etc.).
5. Let the ear thermometer stand at room temperature
before use.
6. It is important to know your normal temperature so you
can compare it to the measurement result.

CARE AND CLEANING, STORAGE
The probe is the most delicate part of the thermometer.
Use caution when cleaning the probe lens to avoid damage.
Holding the thermometer too long may cause the probe
to make a higher ambient temperature reading. This could
make the body temperature measurement lower than usual.
• After each use, clean the probe and probe lens with a cotton
swab or soft cloth moistened with 70% alcohol.
• Let the lens fully dry for at least 30 minutes.
• Keep the unit dry and away from where it might be exposed
to moisture, liquids, direct sunlight, high temperature, high
humidity, or excessive dust.
• Storing the thermometer at 10 to 40°C (50 to 104°F) allows
you to measure body temperature at any time. Storing
the thermometer below or above this temperature range
may cause it to display Er 3. In such a case, leave the
thermometer at 10 to 40°C (50 to 104°F) for at least 30
minutes before taking a measurement reading.

Questions and Answers
Q1: Why is temperature measured in the ear different
from measurements taken under the armpit, in the
mouth, or in the rectum?
A1: Temperatures of different parts of body may vary. Compare
the measurement in question with a normal temperature
previously taken in the same ear.
Q2: The temperature differs each time I take a
measurement. Why? What can I do?
A2: Your method for straightening the ear canal may be
inconsistent, the way you insert the probe may be not
consistent, or you may be taking a second measurement too
soon. Pull the ear rearward to straighten ear canal, then very
gently insert the probe into the ear canal for measurement.
Once a measurement is taken, the temperature in the ear will be
affected. Therefore, wait at least 1 minute before taking another
measurement.
Q3: Can I measure temperature without the probe cover?
A3: This instrument is designed to measure temperature without
the probe cover. Do NOT attach the probe cover or any film or
covering.
Q4: Is it hygienically safe to use the ear thermometer
without the probe cover?
A4: The probe and probe lens should be kept clean by using
a cotton swab or soft cloth moistened with 70% alcohol.
Therefore, the thermometer can be used hygienically without the
probe cover.
Q5: Can I use the ear thermometer in cold/hot places?
A5: This instrument can be used in room temperature from 10
to 40°C (50 to 104°F). Error messages (Er 2 or Er 3) may be
displayed if the temperature during storage greatly differs from
that of the room temperature where you take a measurement
reading. In such a case, let the ear thermometer stand for a
while at room temperature before measurement.
Q6: Can I use the ear thermometer on an infant? Their
ear canals are very small.
A6: Do NOT attempt to force the probe into the ear canal. Use
caution and pay close attention while very gently inserting the
probe just into the entrance of ear canal.
Q7: Can I use the ear thermometer to measure
temperature under the armpit or in the mouth?
A7: No. This instrument is designed to measure temperature
only in the ear.
Q8: Can I use the ear thermometer on animals?
A8: No. This instrument is designed to measure temperature in
the ears of humans.
