Ear thermometers are great. Studies show that taking a temperature via the ear is more accurate than via an oral thermometer. It takes just second and is much easier to do on young children than an old fashioned thermometer.

The braun thermoscan giving inaccurrate temperature readings,how to revtify this problem


Pull the pinnacle of the ear up and back. The sensor must be closer to the tympanic membrane to read a more correct core temp. The sensor must be free of debis and if the ear is infected or the canal has wax present as well as other forms of debis, u will not get a correct temp . If the subject has chronic ear issues I would use an oral trmp or preferably a temporal scanner

I don't have the directions how do I work it i have ThermoScan and want to use on 4month old


How to use Braun ThermoScan 1. Always make sure a new, clean lens filter is in place to help ensure an accurate reading. The thermometer will not function without a lens filter attached (see Changing the lens filter). 2. Press the /mem button. The LCD (liquid crystal display) is activated, showing all segments. When the ready symbol is displayed the thermometer is ready for use. 6 To help ensure an accurate temperature reading, use the following technique: If you are right handed, hold the thermometer in the right hand and take the temperature in the right ear. If you are left handed, hold it in the left hand and use the left ear. 3. Perform an ear tug to straighten the ear canal. This gives the thermometer a clear view of the eardrum. Children under 1 year: Pull the ear straight back. Children aged 1 year to adult: Pull the ear up and back. An ear tug is best performed by using your free hand to grasp the outer edge of the top half of the ear. To take your own temperature, wrap your free hand around the back of your head and grab your ear from behind. 4. While tugging the ear, fit the probe snugly into the ear canal as far as possible and press the activation button. Release it when you hear a beep. This is the Temp Beep that confirms the end of measurement. 5. Remove the thermometer from the ear canal. The LCD displays the temperature measured. 6. Replace the lens filter after each measurement: press the ejector button and put on a new, clean lens filter. 7. A new measurement can be taken as long as the ready symbol is shown. If no button is pressed within 2 minutes, the thermometer will turn off automatically. 7 Note: In the following situations, it is recommended that you take three temperatures in the same ear. If they differ, use the highest reading. · Infants in the first 90 days of life. · Children under three years of age who have a condition such as a compromised immune system and for whom the presence or absence of fever is critical. · When you are first learning to use the ear thermometer until you are comfortable with the technique and are obtaining consistent readings. Important: As with any type of thermometer, slight temperature variations ( ± 0.3 - 0.5 °F / ± 0.2 - 0.3 °C) can occur, if consecutive measurements are taken. Temperature taking hints · The right ear reading may differ from the reading taken at the left ear. Therefore, always take the temperature in the same ear. · The ear must be free from obstructions or excess earwax buildup to take an accurate reading. · External factors may influence ear temperatures, including when an individual has: - been lying on one ear or the other - had their ears covered - been exposed to very hot or very cold temperatures, or - been recently swimming or bathing. In these cases, remove the individual from the situation and wait 20 minutes prior to taking a temperature.

I need a instrution manual for a ear themoniter model no ET1200


Hi.
  • 1 Consider that most digital thermometers take a temperature in less than 30 seconds, quickening the temperature-taking process for squirmy children.
  • 2 Read the thermometer's instructions carefully. Never throw the instructions away. Keep them near your digital thermometer.
  • 3 Wipe the thermometer probe with a soapy washcloth or a tissue dabbed in isopropyl alcohol or put on a clean probe, depending on your brand of thermometer.
  • 4 Turn the thermometer on.
  • 5 Use a gentle rocking motion as you insert the thermometer into the ear canal or rectum. Never push or cram the probe into the body. Forcing it causes pain, especially if there is swelling in the ear canal or rectum.
  • 6 Listen for the beep.
  • 7 Remove the thermometer.
  • 8 Read the thermometer. If you see "ERR," you did not get good contact with the ear canal or rectum, and will need to take the temperature again.
  • 9 Use the chart insert that comes with your thermometer to see what your normal reading should be.
  • 10 Clean your thermometer probe with a soapy washcloth and/or isopropyl alcohol before storing.
