- Remember: Fever itself is not an illness. It is a sign of the body's effort to fight an infection - a healthy response of the immune system. The majority of fevers will not need antibiotics or other treatment.
- In children. a high fever can occur suddenly, and even a low fever can sometimes be dangerous. It's a good idea to take a reading when you child is well so you know what your child's regular temperature is. Ask you health care provider what thermometer reading you should consider "high" for this particular child, and what steps are to be taken.
- Observe your child carefully. The way she acts is often more important than her actual temperature. Watch for listlessness, irritability, and lack of appetite.
- When talking to your child's doctor, be sure to mention:
- how temperature was taken (PACIFIER);
- what thermometer reading actually was;
- any additional symptoms.
Let your child explore the Pacifier Thermometer before turning it on to take the temperature. This will help reduce curiosity and maximize the length of time your baby keeps it in the mouth.
To Take Temperature:
- Clean thermometer before and after each use.
- If thermometer has been in a cold environment, allow it to warm to room temperate (about 15 minutes) before use.
- Avoid storing at temperatures above 140°F
- Remove thermometer from protective cover.
- Press the ON/OFF button once. You will hear one quick beep. Thermometer will display a pretest reading for about two seconds, then show "--.--F" with the "F" flashing to indicate that it is ready to measure temperature.
- Position pacifier bulb in child's mouth and allow the child to suck on it for a minimum of 90 seconds (allowing the thermometer to stay in the child's mouth for 2 to 4 minutes will provide the most accurate reading). Reading is complete when thermometer gives another single quick beep and display stops flashing. You may read display before or after removing thermometer (see "Digital Display" below).
- Press and release the ON/OFF button to turn the thermometer off. (If you forget, it will turn off automatically in about 10 minutes.)
For memory recall: Press the ON/OFF button and hold it in until the last recorded temperature appears - about 3 seconds. (The "M" under the ° symbol indicates "memory.")
- --- -° indicates a reading below 90.0°F
- H°F indicates a reading above 109.9°F
- 188.8° is a normal pre-test display
- ERR indicates thermometer is malfunctioning and should be replaced.
- Range: 90.0° to 109.9°
- Accuracy is plus or minus .2°F between 96.0° and 106.0° F.
- Wipe surface with a damp cloth or sponge using mild liquid soap. Wipe with clear water.
