but it also can be used to measure surface temperature of
following objects:
• Milk surface temperature in baby's bottle
• Surface temperature of baby's bath
• Ambient temperature
Measurement in 1 second
The innovative infrared technology allows measurement of ear
temperature in only 1 second.

• Do not use the thermometer if there are signs of damage on the
measuring tip or on the instrument itself. If damaged, do not
attempt to repair the instrument! Please contact your nearest
MEDEL customer service bureau.
• Earwax in ear canal may cause a lower temperature reading.
Make sure subject's ear canal is clean to ensure an accurate
reading.

4. HOW THE MEDEL MP7 QUICK INSTANT INFRARED
THERMOMETER MEASURES TEMPERATURE
The MEDEL MP7 QUICK instant infrared thermometer measures
infrared energy radiated from the eardrum and the surrounding
tissue. This energy is collected through the lens and converted to a
temperature value. The measured reading obtained directly from
the eardrum (Tympanic Membrane) can ensure the most accurate
ear temperature. Measurements taken from the surrounding tissue
of the ear canal generate lower readings and may result in
misdiagnosis of a fever.
IMPORTANT:
• Use ever the probe cover
• Switch on the thermometer by pressing the O/I button
• Straighten the ear canal by gently pulling the middle of the ear
back and up
• Place the probe firmly into the ear canal, press the Start button
and keep the probe in the ear until the thermometer beeps to
identify the completion of the measurement.

7. DIRECTIONS FOR USE
IMPORTANT: Prior to every measurement, fit a new undamaged
probe cover on the measuring probe. Failure to do so or use of
a dirty, damaged or unfitted probe cover may result in incorrect
temperature measurement.
1. Press the O/I button. The LCD is activated
to show all segments for 2 seconds.
2. The last measurement reading will be
shown on the display automatically
for two seconds with the „M“ icon.
3. When the °C or °F icon is flashing,
a beep sound is heard and the thermometer
is ready for the measurement.
4. Straighten the ear
canal by pulling the
ear up and back to
give a clear view of
the eardrum (Pic.8,9).
• For children under
1 year:
- Pull the ear
straight back
• Children aged
1 year to adult:
- Pull the ear up and
back (Pic.7).

5. While tugging the ear,
insert the probe snugly
Pic. 9
into the ear canal and
press the "START” button. Release it, when
you hear a beep
sound. This is the
reminding signal that comfirms the end of measurement.
6. Remove the thermometer from the ear canal. The LCD displays
23
the measured temperature.
IMPORTANT: 10 short beeps will sound when the temperature is
higher than 37.5°C in order to alert the patient that he/she may
have fever.
7. Replace the probe cover after each measurement. To do this,
please follow the instruction in point 6 „HOW TO RELOAD A
NEW AND CLEAN PROBE COVER?“.
8. In order to assure the accurate readings, please wait at least 30
seconds after 3-5 continuous measurements.
ADVICES FOR A CORRECT MEASUREMENT
• For an infant, it is best to have the child laying flat with his head
sideways so the ear is facing upwards. For an older child or
adult, it is best to stand behind and slightly to the side of the
patient.
• Always take the temperature in the same ear, since the temperature readings may be different from the right ear and left ear.
• Please wait for a few minutes to take the ear temperature after
sleeping.
• Take three temperatures in the same ear and consider the highest
one taken as the reading.
8. CHANGING FROM FAHRENHEIT TO CELSIUS AND VICE-VERSA
The MEDEL MP7 QUICK instant infrared thermometer can display
temperature measurements in either Fahrenheit or Celsius. To
switch the display between °C and °F, simply turn OFF the unit ,
press and hold the Start button for 5 seconds. When you stop
pressing the Start button after 5 seconds, the current measurement
scale (°C or °F icon) will be flashed on the display. Toggle the
measurement scale between °C and °F by pressing the start
button again. When the measurement scale has been chosen,
wait for 5 seconds and the unit will enter the ready for measuring
mode automatically.
