SAFETY
Safety Precautions During Use
• Do not drop, step on or subject the ear thermometer to any
shock or vibration.
• Do not submerge this product in water or any other liquid.
• Do not use excessive force to insert the probe into the ear. Use of
excessive force may injure the ear canal or the eardrum.
• Do not use a portable phone near the thermometer when you are
taking the temperature as it will cause the thermometer
to malfunction.
Caution
• Do not disassemble or repair or remodel the ear scan.
• Do not discard batteries into the fire.
When the Product Should Not be Used
• This thermometer is designed to take your body temperature
through the ear canal only. Do not use it for any other purpose.
• Do not use the product on people suffering from ear diseases.
• Do not use the product while the ear canal is wet (e.g. after a swim
or a bath).
• This product is not waterproof. Therefore, keep the product dry at
all times.
• Do not operate the device outside the specified ambient
temperature range 41°F-104°F(5°C to 40°C) and humidity range
(15-95%RH)
• Do not store the ear thermometer outside the specified ambient
temperature range -13°F-131°F(-25°C to 55°C) and humidity range
(15-95%RH).

1. General
• Clean off dirt in the main body with a clean, soft and dry cloth.
• Do not clean the main body with water nor a cleaner containing
abrasive agents, thinner or benzene.
• Before and after each use, clean the thermometer.
2. Batteries
• If the low battery indicator flashes during use, replace with new
batteries, refer to page 5 under preparation before use point 2 on
the procedure for replacement of new batteries.
• Remove the batteries if you will not be the product for a long
period of time.
3. Probe
• Clean the probes surface with a cotton swab slightly moistened
with alcohol and immediately dry it with a clean cotton swab. After
cleaning, allow at least 5 minutes to dry before using it again.
• Do not clean the probe with a paper towel or paper as it contains
glass fiber, which may damage the lens at the tip of the probe.
• After cleaning , dry the probe thoroughly before store it.
• To assure a high level of accuracy, it is very important to keep the
probe clean, dry and unchanged. Fingerprints, earwax. dust and
other soiling compounds reduces the transparency of the window
and results in lower temperature reading.
• Avoid touching the probe except when cleaning is required.
• As the probe is the most sensitive and delicate part of the
thermometer, it is extremely important to ensure that a probe cover
is always on the probe to protect it from dirt and damage.
4. Storage
• Do not store the ear thermometer under direct sunlight or in
places where temperature and humidity are very high or very
low, in dusty or wet places, or where the product be affected by
a vibrating shock.
BATTERY WARNING:
Keep battery out of child’s reach. Swallowing battery could
be fatal. Battery should not be charged or placed in extreme
heat as it may rupture. Used batteries should be disposed
of properly.

NOTES ON TEMPERATURE
Why Measure in the Ear?
Clinical studies have shown that the ear is an excellent site for taking
body temperature because the temperature taken in the ear reflects
the body’s core temperature. Body temperature is regulated by the
hypothalamus, which shares the same blood supply as the tympanic
membrane. Changes in core body temperature are usually seen sooner
in the tympanic membrane than in other places, such as rectum, mouth
or under the arm.
Advantages of taking temperature in the ear versus traditional
sites:
• Axillary temperature readings only reflect skin temperature,
which may not indicate the internal body temperature.
• Rectal temperature often lag significantly behind internal
body temperature changes, especially at times of rapidly
changing temperatures.
• Oral temperature is often influenced by eating, drinking, breathing
through the mouth, or the inability of the person to close his/her
mouth completely.
Normal body temperature
Normal temperature refers to the body temperature of a healthy
person. It differs among individuals and is affected by environmental conditions such as time of day, atmospheric temperature, activity
before measurement, site of measurement e.g. ear, mouth, or armpit.
We recommend that you determine your normal body temperature by
measuring several times under the same conditions.
How Does the Ear Thermometer Work?
The Ear Thermometer measures the infra heat generated by the
eardrum and surrounding tissues. Clinical research has shown that
the ear is an ideal site for taking body temperature since the eardrum
shares blood vessels with the hypothalamus; the part of the brain
that controls body temperature. To help ensure accuracy, the
Ear Thermometer takes 6 measurements within one second and
displays the average temperature.
Measuring difference for ear themometer (for reference only)
According to the explanation of ASTM-E1965,
there might be some differences in reading
results if the measuring position is different.
The following drawing is taken from
ASTM-E1965 for your reference (Fig.1).

FEATURES AND EFFECTIVENESS
Features
• The ear thermometer is simple and convenient to use with one
button operation.
• Loading of a probe cover is not required before taking a
measurement, making the thermometer more user-friendly and
more cost-effective.
• Measures temperature in one second.
• Unique and slim design, following the contour of human’s palm for
easy handling.
• Comes with a large LCD for easy reading.
• Operated by two AAA batteries for easy replacement.
• Auto-off function helps you to save energy in the batteries.
• The ear thermometer is light and compact, allowing you to take
it everywhere.
Effectiveness
• Compared to traditional thermometers, which require several
minutes to take the temperature, the ear thermometer takes only one
second to display the measurement.
• It is safer to take the temperature in the ear, as there is no risk of
infection caused by contact with mucous membrane in the oral cavity
or the rectum as in conventional measurement.
• Operating environment from 41°F-104°F(5°C-40°C) makes it easy for you
to take a measurement.

USE OF YOUR PRODUCT (continued)
PREPARATION BEFORE USE
2. Inserting the probe into the ear canal
1. General
• Ensure that your ear is clean. If your ear is clogged with excessive
earwax measurement may be inaccurate.
• Sudden change of ambient temperature may influence the
measurement accuracy. For accurate measurement, try to store
the ear thermometer in the same room where you usually take
your temperature.
• For accurate measurement, take the temperature while you relax.
Your temperature may increase after exercise or a bath.
• The right ear reading may differ from the left ear. Therefore, always
take the temperature using the same ear.
• External factors may influence ear temperatures, including when an
individual has:
-been lying on one ear or the other
-had their ear covered
-been exposed to very hot or very cold temperatures
-has just finished swimming or bathing
-has been wearing hearing aids or ear plugs
Should any of the above mentioned situations occurs, wait for
20 minutes prior to taking the temperature.
Gently Pull Outer Ear.
Straighten Ear Canal
Less than 1 Year

Fully Insert Thermometer Probe
Gently into Ear
For children aged 1 year or above and for adults:
• Pull the ear slightly backwards and insert the probe along the ear
canal in a straight direction.
• Insert the probe until the body of the probe fully seals the ear canal
and hold it there until measurement is completed.
For an infant less than 1 year old:
• Pull the ear diagonally behind to make the ear canal straight.
• Apply the tip of the probe straight against the ear canal. Hold in
this position until measurement is completed.
2. Inserting batteries
• Your Ear Thermometer requires two AAA batteries. To insert,
remove the battery cover by sliding it away from the probe as
shown in fig.3.
For measuring your own temperature:
