Prior to obtaining a temperature we recommend the ear thermometer be placed a room temperature for approximately 15 minutes.
For children under 1 year of age – Pull the ear straight back
For children over the age of 1 and adult - Pull the ear up and back
Note: Proper placement within the ear canal is essential for an accurate reading. If the thermometer is not inserted properly and firmly into the ear canal, a lower reading might be obtained.
