Special Features:
Normal Temperature Alarm: An alarm will sound when the peak temperature has registered
and is ready-to-read. The "Normal Temperature" alarm (four quick beeps followed by a
pause) will sound repeatedly for approximately 10 seconds.
Last-Temperature Memory Recall: When the ON/OFF button is depressed to activate the
thermometer, hold down for approximately 2 seconds. The display of 188.8 will change to
show the last measured temperature. This reading is displayed as long as the button is held
down. When the button is released, the thermometer will be in "ready-to-measure" mode and
the recalled temperature will be erased.
ThermoTrend: It will show for 4 seconds (1) after last temperature recall (2) after
measurement completed, with the last-temperature bar (right bar) blinking.The right bar
shows the trend of last measurement, by comparing with 2nd last measurement, if last
measurement is bigger (smaller) by 0.2 °C (0.4 °F ) than 2nd last measurement, the bar will
level up (down) one stage.
The middle bar shows the trend of 2nd last measurement, by comparing with the 3rd last
measurement. The left bar shows the trend of 3rd last measurement, by comparing with the
4th last measurement.

with FeverTeller flashing (Red→Orange→Green).
3. Release the power switch and the display will show L°C(L°F) with °C(°F) flashing.
4. Place the probe in the appropriate position (oral, axillary or rectal).
5. Once the degree sign °C(°F) on the display stopped flashing, the correct
temperature is indicated and FeverTeller will light up color according to the measuresd
temperature.The temperature reading will not change after the °C(°F) stops flashing.
6. The unit will automatically turn off in 30 seconds ( approx. ). However, to prolong battery
life, it is best to turn the thermometer off by pressing the ON/OFF button once the
temperature has been noted.
For Models with Fever Alarm : If the temperature registers higher than 37.5°C(99.5°F), the fever alarm (a
quick beeping sound which occurs continuously for about 10 seconds) will sound when the peak temperature
has registered. Also, the result will keep flashing until the thermometer is turned off.
For Switchable Centigrade and Fahrenheit Models :After turning on the thermometer, the Centigrade or
Fahrenheit mode can be switched within the first 5 seconds by pressing the ON/OFF button.
NOTE : Always disinfect the thermometer before using.
NOTE : In Step 2, if the room temperature is greater than 32.0°C (89.6°F), it will be displayed
rather than L°C(or L°F).
NOTE : In Step 3, you may put a sanitary plastic probe shield on the sensor tip to help prevent
cross-infection and contamination. Use of the probe cover may result in a 0.1°C
(0.2°F ) difference from actual temperature. Dispose of any used probe shield and
store the unit in a safe place.
THE TAKING OF BODY TEMPERATURES: Change in body temperature is one of the most
important indicators of illness. It is important that accurate temperatures be taken. Even
though the digital thermometer is used in similar manner to the glass thermometer, it is
important that the simple instructions for use of this thermometer be followed closely and that
the person taking the temperature understands body temperature.
BODY TEMPERATURE: A person's body temperature will usually be several tenths to one
full degree lower in the morning than it is in the late afternoon. Therefore, if your temperature
is 36.6°C(97.9°F) in the morning, it could be 36.9°C(98.4°F) or more in the late afternoon
and still be normal. To determine what your normal body temperature is you should take your
temperature both in the early morning and in the late afternoon over several days. Children
have the same normal temperature range as do adults. A fever for both children and adults is
typically defined as a temperature over 37.5°C(99.5°F) (oral reading). Exercise, excessive
clothing, hot bath, hot weather, warm food and drink can cause mild elevations of up to 38°C
(100.4°F) to 38.4°C(101.1°F) in oral temperature. If you suspect one of these to be the
cause of an elevated reading, eliminate the possible cause and retake the temperature in a
half hour.
Place the probe well under the patient's tongue. Instruct the patient
to keep their mouth closed while the thermometer is reading.
A normal temperature by this method is usually considered between
36.0°C to 37.5°C(96.8°F to 99.5°F).
probe tip
1. For best results, do not use the fast read thermometer for axillary (underarm)
measurement. Only use it for taking oral and rectal temperatures.
2. Do not boil the probe . Instead , clean the unit by wiping it with a dry cloth and disinfect the
probe with ethyl ( rubbing ) alcohol .
3. Do not drop the thermometer or expose to heavy shock . The unit is not shockproof .
4. Do not bite the probe.
5. Do not store the unit in direct sunlight, or at a high temperature, or in high humidity or dust.
Performance may be degraded.
6. Stop using the thermometer if it operates erratically or it displays malfunctions .
7. Keep out of the reach of unsupervised children .
8. Clean the thermometer probe before storing .
9. Do not attempt to disassemble the unit except to replace the battery .
10. If the thermometer has been stored at below-freezing temperatures, allow the
thermometer to warm naturally to room temperature before using .
11. Performance of the device may be degraded if operated or stored outside stated
temperatures and humidity ranges or the patient's temperature is below the ambient
(room) temperature.
1. When the symbol "
" appears, the battery needs to be replaced.
2. Using a coin, unlock the battery cover by turning it counter-clockwise and carefully remove the battery with a
non-metal instrument from the battery holder. Avoid using any sharp metal object in this operation.
3. Discard old battery carefully.
4. Replace the battery with a 3V, CR2032 lithium type or equivalent in the chamber with the negative (-)
side down and the positive (+) side up.
5. Using a coin, replace and secure the battery cover by turning it clockwise.
If rectal temperature is recommended by your doctor, you may use a probe shield. Insert
thermometer into the probe shield. Lubricate the probe cover with a water soluble jelly for
easier insertion . Do not use petroleum jelly . Insert tip of probe no more than 1/2 inch into
rectum . STOP if you meet any resistance . The sensing unit is on the very tip of the probe
and there is no need to insert the probe deep into the rectum . In general, the rectal
temperature is around 0.5°C to 1.0°C(1.0 to 2.0°F) higher than oral temperature.
Wipe armpit with a dry towel . Place probe in the patient's armpit and keep the patient's
arm pressed firmly against the body. In general, the axillary temperature is around 0.5°C
to 1.0°C(1.0 to 2.0°F) lower than oral temperature. Note that in order to achieve better
axillary temperature measurement result , a minimum measuring time of 3~5 minutes is
recommended regardless of the beep sound.
NOTE : Children should be attended by an adult during the entire temperature recording
process . After use , the digital thermometer should be stored in a safe place, out of reach
of young children. If you compare temperatures between two thermometers , it is possible
to have two different readings even if both thermometers are within their accuracy
tolerances. Differences in how you take each reading and the thermometer's tolerance
range can account for nearly 0.1°C(0.2°F) variability.
To clean the thermometer, wash the tip with a solution of mild detergent and cool water.
Disinfect the thermometer by wiping the sensor and lower stem with a cloth dipped in a
household antiseptic solution such as rubbing alcohol.
This thermometer is guaranteed for one year from the date of purchase against
manufacturer's defect under normal, household use. Following the directions closely will
ensure years of dependable operation. If the thermometer does not function properly, first
check the batteries (see battery replacement instructions). Replace it if necessary.
Warning :
1. Discard old battery carefully , out of reach of young children. Swallowing the battery may be fatal.
If the battery is swallowed, contact a hospital immediately to have it removed. Do not dispose of
the battery in a fire. It may explode .
2. For battery disposition, please consider the national regulation.
