Today’s digital thermometers have revolutionised temperature measurement and brought advanced medical technology to your bathroom cabinet. A thermometer should measure your core body temperature, which is the temperature of your heart, brain and other organs. This is usually measured in your ear because your eardrum temperature, which provides an accurate reflection of how warm your body is. Measuring temperature in the ear is much more comfortable and convenient than in the mouth, especially for children.
OMRON offers a range of in-ear, infrared (contactless), and pencil/stick thermometers. In-ear and infrared models are particularly suitable for small children because they have a fast measurement feature. Some of these thermometers also have a large backlit display which is ideal for night-time use.
A new probe cover must be used for each measurement in order to ensure accurate results. Never use the thermometer without a probe cover as this can cause the lens to become dirty and potentially impact the accuracy of the temperature measurement. The Probe Cover is critical to ensure fingerprints, ear wax or dirt will not contaminate the probe and impede upon the accuracy of the thermometer. If the probe lens becomes dirty it may be gently cleaned with a soft cotton cloth moistened with alcohol. Do NOT use a paper towel. The fibers in the paper towel may scratch the probe lens. Allow forty- five (45) minutes for the probe lens to dry completely before attaching the Probe Cover. Always return the thermometer to its protective case when not in use.
