What you should know about using this thermometer
6	
There are different thermometers for taking temperature measurements in different parts of the body:
Ear/forehead thermometer (this thermometer, for measuring in the ear or on the forehead area)
•	
Rod thermometer (for rectal (in the back passage), axillary (under the arm) or oral measurement (in the
•	
mouth))
 Taking the temperature gives a measurement that provides information about a person’s current
body temperature. If you are uncertain about interpreting the results or if the value is abnormal,
please consult your doctor. This also applies in the case of slight temperature changes if there are
other symptoms of illness such as agitation, severe sweating, flushed skin, fast pulse rate, tendency
to collapse etc.
Temperatures measured with different thermometers cannot be compared with one another. You
should therefore tell your doctor (or bear in mind if you are diagnosing yourself) what thermometer
you used to take your temperature and in what part of the body.
The temperature of a healthy person is affected by various factors: the person's individual metabo-
lism, their age (body temperature is higher in babies and toddlers and decreases with age. Greater
temperature fluctuations occur faster and more often in children, e.g. due to growth spurts), their
clothing, the ambient temperature, the time of day (body temperature is lower in the morning and in-
creases throughout the day towards evening), the preceding physical and, to a lesser extent, mental
activity.
The temperature varies depending on the part of the body where the measurement is taken. The
difference can be between 0.4°F (0,2°F) and 1.8°F (1°C) for a healthy body. The normal temperature
ranges are as follows:
On the forehead: 96.4°F - 99.7°F (35.8°C - 37.6°C), measured with a forehead thermometer
•	
In the ear: 96.8°F - 100°F (36.0°C - 37.8°C), measured with an ear thermometer
•	
In the back passage: 97.3°F - 100°F (36.3°C - 37.8°C), measured with a conventional
•	
thermometer
In the mouth: 96.8°F - 99.3°F (36.0°C - 37.4°C), measured with a conventional thermometer
•	
In order to track temperature change, always take the measurements in the same part of the body.

Measuring
7	
Before each use, please check that the lens is intact. If it is damaged, please contact your retailer or the
service address.
Bear in mind that the thermometer needs to have been in the room in which the measurement is taken for at
least 30 minutes before use.
Measuring body temperature in the ear
 Some people produce different readings in their left and right ear. In order to record temperature
•	
changes, always measure a person's temperature in the same ear.
The ear thermometer may be used by children only under adult supervision. Measurement is usu-
•	
ally possible over the age of 6 months. In infants under 6 months, the ear canal is still very narrow
so the temperature of the eardrum often cannot be recorded and the result displayed is often too
low.
The measurement must not be taken in an ear affected by inflammatory diseases (e.g. discharg-
•	
ing pus or secretion), after possible ear injuries (e.g. eardrum damage) or in the healing period
after operative procedures. In all of these cases, please consult your doctor.
Use of the thermometer on different persons can be inappropriate in the event of certain acute
•	
infectious diseases because of the possible spread of germs despite cleaning and disinfection. If
you have any doubts, please consult your doctor.
This thermometer may only be used without a disposable protective cover.
•	
If you have been lying on one ear for some time, the temperature is slightly raised. Wait a little
•	
while or measure in the other ear.
As ear wax can affect the measurement, you should clean the ear before measuring if necessary.
•

Press the
•	 button for 1 second to switch the thermometer on.
Following a successful self test, the device emits two short beeps.
Remove the cap by gently pushing it up (1) and then pulling it off
•	
forwards (2).

Make sure that the sensor tip and also the ear canal are clean.
As the ear canal is slightly curved, you have to pull the ear slightly up and
backwards before inserting the sensor tip. This is important so that the sensor
tip can be pointed directly at the eardrum.
Insert the sensor tip carefully and press the
•	 button for 1 second.
Release the
•	 button. The end of the measuring time is signalled with a
short beep and the measured value appears on the display.
If the measured value is within the normal range (< 100.4°F/38°C), the green
LED lights up for 3 seconds. If the measured value is higher (≥ 100.4°F/38°C,
high temperature), the red LED is illuminated.

Measuring body temperature on the forehead
Please note that the forehead/temples must be free from sweat and cosmetics and
that taking vasoconstrictive medication and skin irritations can distort the result
when measuring temperature on the forehead.
Press the
•	 button for 1 second to switch the thermometer on. Following a
successful self test, the device emits two short beeps.
Place the measuring head with the forehead/cover cap fitted on the temples,
•	
hold down the button and move the thermometer smoothly over the
forehead to the other temple.
Then release the
•	 button. The end of the measuring time is signalled with a
short beep and the measured value appears on the display.
If the measured value is within the normal range (< 100.4°F/38°C), the green LED lights up for 3 seconds. If
the measured value is higher (≥ 100.4°F/38°C, high temperature), the red LED is illuminated.
Measuring surface temperature
Press the
•	 button for 1 second to switch the thermometer on. Following a successful self test, the
device emits two short beeps.
Then press the
•	 and buttons simultaneously for 3 seconds to switch to the Object temperature
mode. The symbol appears in the display.
Press and hold the
•	 or button and point the sensor tip towards to the object or liquid to be meas-
ured (never immerse in liquids), maintaining a distance of 3 cm.
Release the
•	 or button. The end of the measuring time is signalled with a short beep and the
measured value appears on the display.
Please note that the displayed temperature is the measured and not the adapted surface temperature. It is
not the same as the forehead/ear temperature.
To switch back to the Ear/Forehead thermometer mode, press the and buttons simultaneously for 3
seconds until the symbol disappears and there is a short beep. By switching the thermometer off and on
again, it automatically exits the Object temperature mode.

The temperature last measured, i.e. only the last value of a series of measurements, is automatically stored
as soon as the thermometer switches itself off or is switched off. There are 10 memory spaces available for
this.
To switch the thermometer off, press the and buttons simultaneously for approx. 3 seconds.
If you do not press any other buttons, the thermometer automatically switches off approx. one minute after
displaying the measured value.
To call up the saved values, switch the thermometer on and press the button.
The date, time, storage space number, the measurement mode symbol and the temperature are displayed in
turn. Browse through the stored measurements by pressing the button repeatedly.
