INTRODUCTION
Congratulations on your purchase of the Welch Allyn SureTemp Plus Thermistor
Thermometer. Please follow the operating and maintenance instructions provided in this
manual to ensure years of accurate and reliable service. Please read these instructions
thoroughly before using the instrument, and then store these instructions in a safe place
for future reference.
The Welch Allyn SureTemp Plus is a portable thermistor thermometer used for accurately
measuring body temperatures at oral, axillary, or rectal sites.
Normal body temperature is a range, which varies from person to person and is
influenced by factors such as time of day and an individual’s level of activity, ingested
medications, age, and gender. A person’s normal temperature tends to decrease with
age.
The following table shows that ranges of normal also vary by site. Do not directly compare
measurements from different sites.
