INTRODUCTION

Thank you for purchasing the BébéSounds® Ear Thermometer. This thermometer will enable you to take an accurate temperature in just one second.

The ear thermometer is a delicate electronic device designed to measure body temperature. This thermometer provides you with accurate and reliable temperature readings by detecting infrared heat from the eardrum. The eardrum reflects the body’s temperature because it shares blood vessels with the part of the brain that controls body temperature.

Temperature readings from an ear thermometer are considered to be as accurate as those taken orally. Please keep in mind that body temperature will differ based on a person’s age and the time of day when it is taken. Temperature will also vary from ear to ear. Therefore, for best results, temperature should be taken from the same ear whenever possible.

Use of this ear thermometer should not replace a visit to your doctor. It is recommended that you advise your doctor any time a temperature is above 100°F/37.8°C.

INSTRUCTIONS FOR USE

1. Press and realease the

 

POWER/SCAN button

 

and the system will start

 

its self-testing cycle

 

Figure 1

(See Fig. 1).

 

2. Once the self-testing is

 

completed, the display

 

will show the last temper-

Figure 2

 

ature recorded. (See Fig.

 

2). This indicates that the

 

thermometer is ready for

 

you to use.

 

3.Press the POWER/SCAN button without releasing

it so it will perform the

Figure 3

 

automatic scanning

 

 

sequences. The word Lo

 

may appear indicating

 

the temperature

 

registering is lower than

 

93.2°F/34°C (See Fig. 3).

 

4.Keeping the POWER/SCAN button depressed, insert the probe into the ear canal. The probe must be inserted well

6

into the ear to allow the

 

probe tip to continuously

 

scan the ear canal. This

 

will ensure an accurate

Figure 4

 

 

temperature measurement

 

(See Fig. 4). After one

 

second release the

 

POWER/SCAN button

 

for a temperature reading.

 

5. A beep will indicate the

 

 

end of the temperature

 

measurement. (See Fig. 5).

ear canal and view the

 

temperature.

 

6.To change the reading from Celsius to Fahrenheit, press the POWER/SCAN button without releasing it and then press the MEM button.

7.A smiling face will

appear in the display to

indicate a temperature Figure 6 lower than 100.4°F/38°C

7

Figure 7

Figure 9

while a frowning face accompanied by one long and two short beeps will indicate a temperature higher than 100.4°F/38°C

(See Figs. 6 & 7).

8.The thermometer’s temperature range is

between 93.2°- 109.4°F and 34°- 43°C. A Lo

reading appears when the temperature measured

is lower than 93.2°F/34°C, while a Hi reading appears when the temperature measured is higher than 109.4°F/43°C (See Figs. 8 & 9).

9.If the ambient temperature is outside the thermome-

ter’s range (see Technical

 

 

 

 

Figure 10

 

 

 

 

 

 

Specifications), “Err” will

 

 

appear in the display

 

 

(see Fig. 10).

 

 

10. The Ear Thermometer

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

stores and recalls the last

 

 

 

 

10 temperature readings.

 

 

Figure 11

 

 

 

 

 

To recall prior readings

 

 

simply press the MEM button. The memory symbol (top left corner), the number of the reading and the temperature reading will appear on the display (See Fig. 11).

11.To get the most precise temperature reading wait five seconds before taking a temperature again.

12.The temperature will vary between both ears so try to take the temperature from the same ear each time.

CARE AND CLEANING

1.The ear thermometer is a delicate electronic device. Although the probe is waterproof, the body of the thermometer is not. Therefore, to ensure proper functioning, avoid direct contact of the body of the thermometer with water or other liquids.

2.Clean the probe with a soft cloth moistened with either water or alcohol. Clean the body of the thermometer with a soft dry cloth. Never use an abrasive.

3.Avoid touching the probe with your fingers.

4.Do not expose the thermometer to direct sunlight.

5.Keep out of the reach of children and in the storage case when not in use.

The optimal storage temperature is between 4°~122°F/-20°~50°C.

6.The ear thermometer is designed for taking temperatures from the ear canal only. Do not use it to take rectal, oral, or armpit temperatures.

7.Do not disassemble the thermometer.

11

NOTE: According to extensive clinical examinations, the temperature readings given by an ear thermometer are equivalent to those given by its oral counterparts.

Use of this ear thermometer should not replace a visit to your doctor.

TROUBLESHOOTING

1.Consistent low temperature readings

a.The probe is not positioned properly in the ear canal. The tip of the probe must be snug and fully seated against the opening of the ear canal. Failure to properly position the probe may lead to a low temperature reading.

b.The waterproof lens is dirty. Clean the lens with a soft cloth moistened with water or alcohol.

2.The measurement is out of the range of the ear thermometer

a.Switch the ear thermometer on before positioning it in the ear. Please properly position the ear thermometer in the ear canal and then repeat the measurement.

3.Low battery warning

a.Battery needs to be replaced.

See Battery Installation section of the manual.

NOTE: If you believe your thermometer is defective or otherwise not operating properly, please check the battery first. If the thermometer is still not operating properly or if you are having any other technical problems, please contact:
