Instructions for use of forehead thermometer
Only when used correctly will the thermometer provide an accurate measurement. Not every head thermometer works non-contact. Some devices need to be placed against the forehead and then pushed through the temple to the cavity under the ear. Other devices can be held a few centimetres away from the head to measure the temperature. There are also devices that can measure the temperature of liquids, such as the baby's bath water, in addition to body temperature.
Whichever device you have, we recommend always reading the instructions carefully before taking a measurement.
