- Thermometer readings should be regarded as a reference. Do not attempt self-diagnostics or self-treatment using the temperature readings. Please seek professional medical advice when necessary.
- There is no absolute standard for human body temperature. Knowing your average body temperature range is important to determine accurately if you have a fever.
- Make sure that the forehead of the subject is free from sweat, cosmetics, dirt, or grease before measuring.
- Patients should not drink, eat, or be physically active before/while taking a reading. Wait 30 minutes before taking a measurement. Temperature readings taken when a body is in a state of stable equilibrium are more accurate and useful as a reference.
- Do not take temperature measurements over scar tissue, open sores, or abrasions.
- Do not measure body temperature from scar tissues on the forehead, as such tissues will affect temperature conduction of the body.
- If there is a temperature difference between the thermometer storage area and the new ambient environment around the forehead, please let the thermometer sit within the new environment for 30 minutes before taking the measurement.
- Do not measure body temperature immediately after consuming a drug that raises body temperature. Temperature readings taken at this time will not be accurate.
- It is normal for readings taken from continuous measurement to fluctuate within a small range. During continuous measurements, the subject’s body temperature may be transmitted to the thermometer, affecting measurement accuracy. We recommend taking only up to 3 continuous readings within a short period.
- Do not directly face the sun or an air outlet of an air conditioning or radiator device during the measurement as this will cause changes to the forehead temperature. Measurements should be taken in a stable environment where possible.
- Do not measure body temperature in an environment with strong EM interference (examples include places close to a working microwave, induction cooker, or cellphone in use) as EM interference may cause errors in the reading or even device failure.
- This product should be considered a personal device. Clean and sanitize the product properly to prevent cross-contamination.
- To clean a dirty thermometer probe, gently swipe the probe using a cotton swab dipped in 70% alcohol. Let the cleaned thermometer sit for at least 15 minutes before taking more measurements.
- This infrared thermometer meets requirements established in ASTM Standard (E1965-98) Except for clause 5.2.2. It displays the subject’s temperature over a range of 89.6°F-109.2°F.
