SolarTherm Speed Thermometer



Power and recharging: 1. For the first time use, the thermometer must be charged in good light for at least 5 hours. 2. When the low power symbol appears, the solar cell needs to be recharged at least 60 minutes. 3. Turn the power off before recharging. 4. The solar cell should face the light source during recharging. Directions for use: 1. Disinfect the probe with ethyl or isopropyl (rubbing) alcohol before using. 2. Depress the ON/OFF button to activate the display. 3. Release the ON/OFF button and the display will show L degrees F with a flashing degree scale symbol. 4. Place the probe correctly in the appropriate site (oral, rectal or axillary). 5. Once the degree scale symbol stops flashing, the correct temperature is displayed. The temperature reading will not change after the degree sign stops flashing. 6. The unit will automatically turn off in 9 minutes (approx.). However, to save energy, it is best to turn the thermometer off immediately after the temperature has been noted. Special features: Normal temperature alarm: An alarm will sound when the maximum temperature has registered and is ready to read. The "Normal Temperature" alarm (four quick beeps followed by a pause) will sound repeatedly for approximately 8 seconds. Fever alarm: If the temperature registers higher than 99.5 degrees F, the fever alarm (a quick beeping sound, which occurs continuously for about 8 seconds), will sound when the peak temperature has registered. Last memory recall: When the ON/OFF button is depressed to activate the thermometer, display of 188.8 will change to show the last measured temperature and then will return to "ready-to-measure" mode. The recalled temperature will then be erased. Note: Always disinfect the thermometer before use. Note: If the room temperature is greater than 89.6 degrees F, initial reading will be displayed as a number rather than L degrees F. Note: You may put a sanitary plastic probe cover on the sensor tip to help prevent cross-infection. Use of the probe cover can result in a -0.2 degrees F difference from actual temperature. Dispose of any used probe covers and store the unit in a safe place. Oral: Place the sensor tip well under the patient's tongue. Instruct the patient to keep their mouth closed while the thermometer is measuring. Rectal: If rectal temperature is recommended by your doctor, you should use a probe cover. Insert thermometer into the probe cover. Lubricate the probe cover with a water soluble jelly for easier insertion. Do not use petroleum jelly. Insert tip of probe no more than 1/2 inch into the rectum. STOP if you meet any resistance. Axillary: Wipe armpit with a dry towel. Place the probe high in the patient's armpit and keep the patient's arm pressed firmly against their side. Note: children should be attended by an adult during the entire temperature measurement process. After use, the digital thermometer should be stored in a safe place, out of reach of young children. If you compare temperatures between two thermometers, it is possible to have two different readings even if both thermometers are functioning within their accuracy tolerances. This can be due to differences in technique. Remember: Find your normal temperature and watch for changes. Cleaning instructions: To clean the thermometer, wash the tip with a solution of mild detergent and cool water. Disinfect the thermometer by wiping the sensor and lower stem with a cloth dipped in a household antiseptic solution such as rubbing alcohol. Please make sure that the thermometer is not totally immersed in water or disinfection solution. The thermometer is water resistant, but not waterproof.
