HOW THE EAR THERMOMETER WORKS
BEFORE YOU START
The LifeSource ear thermometer utilizes infrared thermo scanning
principles to scan the temperature of the human eardrum. The
eardrum is located beneath the surface and not easily influenced
by the changing temperature in the environment.
The LifeSource ear thermometer is faster, safer and easier to use
than traditional stick thermometers. It scans the eardrum 512
times per second and displays the highest temperature detected.
Measurements can even be taken while your child is sleeping. For
adults, an ear thermometer offers fast, comfortable, accurate
readings in seconds.
This product is intended for household use only. If you have
questions about the meaning of a specific temperature, please
consult your physician.
Use the thermometer at room temperature between 60.8° F 104.0° F (16° C - 40° C). If the ear thermometer is stored in an
environment where the temperature is out of that range, move the
thermometer to a location with a room temperature of 60.8 F 104.0° F (16° - 40° C). Allow the thermometer to equalize to that
temperature range before use.
Why the ear?
☞ Your ear is cold, wet or blocked with ear wax
is within 30 minutes after eating, taking a bath or physical
☞ Itexercise
☞ You are suffering from an ear infection
Research indicates 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
body temperature.
Eardrum
Hypothalamus
Lens
DO NOT measure temperature if:
NOTE: Make sure the tip of the thermometer is clean. A dirty
lens may cause an inaccurate measurement. Clean the lens with
a soft, alcohol moistened cloth or cotton swab. Never use an
abrasive cleaner. Never submerge the body of the thermometer
in water or any other liquid.
We recommend you practice with the LifeSource ear thermometer
on yourself and family members while you are healthy. This way
you know how the thermometer works and will feel more
confident of the measurements when you or a family member is ill.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
✓
Q. Why do I get consistently low temperature
readings?
A. The thermometer is not positioned properly in the ear. The tip of
the thermometer must form a seal around the opening of the ear.
OR
A. The waterproof lens is dirty. Clean the lens with a soft, alcohol
moistened cotton swab.
Q. Why is the reading taken in the right ear
different from that taken in the left ear?
A. The temperature is roughly the same in both ears, but the
values may differ because the shape and cleanliness of each ear
is different. Also, the position of the thermometer can affect the
reading.
Q. Can I use this thermometer to measure an
animal’s temperature?
A. No. This thermometer has been designed exclusively for
human use. The UT-202 ear thermometer was programmed
specifically for the human ear construction and human body
temperature.
