2.5 Recommendations
The thermometer default is set to Celsius °C. It is possible to measure the
temperature in °C or °F. To change the unit of temperature from °C
(Centigrade) to °F (Fahrenheit) follow the procedure shown below.
Store the unit in the room where you are going to use it.
1 The GentleTemp 510 ‚ is off and the display is blank.
2 Press and hold the blue button for approx. 4 seconds.
During this period all the symbols on the display illuminate.
Next a large C flashes on the LCD.
3 Remove your finger from the blue button.
4 Each time the button is pressed a large C or a large F is
displayed alternatively.
5 Remove your finger from the blue button.
6 Five ( 5) seconds after pressing, the thermometer turns
off automatically. The display is blank.
7 The thermometer is now set for the Fahrenheit (°F) mode.
To select Celsius (°C) mode, start from Step 1.
6
If the unit has been stored in a cool (cold) room, allow it to reach ambient
temperature before using (temperature of the environment needs to be
above 10 °C or keep the thermometer at least 30 minutes in the place
where you are going to use it). Do not warm the unit by placing it near a fire.
Instead, place it in the room where you are going to use it to allow it to reach
the room temperature.
Start measurement after the body (ear) is warmed up.
The measurement may indicate a lower temperature than the actual
temperature in the following cases:
• Immediately after returning to your home (especially in winter).
• In a cool or cold room.
• When the head (ear) is cooled by an ice bag.
Confirm the measuring method by familiarizing yourself with the best way
to insert the unit in the ear. Do this during normal body temperature periods.
• Note the angle you are holding the thermometer at when the highest
measurement value is indicated.
• The measurement value may differ for each ear. Try to measure the
temperature using the ear that shows the highest temperature in stable
conditions.

TO INTERPRET MEASURED RESULTS
4.2 Normal and raised temperature
The GentleTemp 510® instant ear thermometer detects the infrared heat
given off by the eardrum and surrounding tissues, and it converts this heat
into an equivalent ear temperature.
We recommend that you practice with the GentleTemp 510® on yourself and
family members.
This way you can improve your technique and feel more confident of the
measurements you take when a family member is ill. You will also be able
to tell when a reading is higher than normal.
The GentleTemp 510® is less threatening to a child than a rectal
thermometer. It’s faster, safer and easier to use than an oral thermometer.
Being digital, there’s no worry about the hazard of broken glass or mercury
ingestion. Measurements can even be taken while a child is sleeping.
For adults, the GentleTemp 510® Instant Ear Thermometer offers fast,
convenient and accurate readings without the delay of a conventional
thermometer.
As ambient temperature, sweat, or saliva easily
affects body temperature measured under the arm
or the tongue, readings may be lower than the core
temperature.
Tympanic temperature measurement accurately
reflects the brain temperature and can lead to a
quicker detection of fever.
4.1 Temperature measurements taken within the ear
Clinical research has shown that the ear is an ideal site for taking body
temperature. The eardrum shares blood vessels with the hypothalamus,
the part of the brain that controls body temperature. Therefore, the ear is an
accurate indicator of internal (core) body temperature. An ear temperature,
unlike an oral temperature, is unaffected by factors such as talking, drinking,
and smoking.

In order to make a correct judgement of suspected fever conditions, it is
important to learn the normal temperatures of family members by measuring
their temperatures when they are in good physical condition.

SOLVING PROBLEMS
The temperature measured in the ear is different to that measured rectally.
Please use the normal as the standard for understanding the temperature
difference during fever.

after leaving the unit in
the room where you are
going to measure so
that the unit is accustomed to the temperature of that room
(between 10°C - 40°C
(50°F - 104°F)).
If you store the unit
in the room where you
are actually going to
measure, you can
measure quickly.
The temperature of the
main unit may be above
40°C (104°F).

5.2 Question and answer
How many times can I measure consecutively?
You can measure consecutively up to three times. The main unit will then
be warmed up and may not be able to measure correctly. If you are going to
measure more than three times, wait for ten minutes, then measure again.
The temperature indicated is rather high.
1 The probe cover may be faulty.
2 You may have used the thermometer that has been stored in a cool or
cold place. Measure the temperature after leaving the unit in the room
where you are going to use for more than thirty minutes. If you store the
unit in the room where you are going to measure the temperature, you can
use the thermometer promptly.

GentleTemp 510 English
Is the temperatures measured in the right ear different from that
measured in the left ear?
Among healthy people, there should be no significant difference in the
measurement results. Differences may be caused by the following reasons:
1) The infrared sensor is not inserted in the same way.
2) Measurement is not conducted by inserting the unit in a stable manner in
the same angle. Try to measure in either ear that can show the highest
measurement value constantly. In accordance with the “10 seconds mode,”
the unit detects the highest temperature. (Refer to paragraph 3.2).
The temperature shown is rather low.
1 The probe cover is dirty.
2 The infrared sensor is dirty.
3 You removed the unit from the ear before the measurement is finished.
4 The ear is cold. The temperature tends to indicate low when you use
an ice bag or an ice pack, or immediately after coming in from the
cold in winter.
5 The thermometer is not inserted deep enough in the ear.
6 The infrared sensor is not directed towards the eardrum.
Use the 10 seconds measurement mode (Refer to paragraph 3.2).
