The Innovo Dual Mode Thermometer allows you to choose between the ear mode, recommended for ages above one-year-old, and forehead mode, ideal for all ages. The device uses the latest infrared scanning technology that is clinically proven to be extremely reliable and accurate. Innova Forehead and Ear Thermometer (INV-DC200) was designed to live the blood heat via the subject’s ear (recommended for teenagers age 1 and above) and/or forehead (recommended for all ages).
Using the newest infra-red scanning technology, the Innovo DC-200 has proven to be extremely reliable and accurate during clinical trials.
Features of Innova Forehead and Ear Thermometer
Measure temperature via Innova forehead and ear thermometer or ear (recommended for children > age 1)
Press F1 for forehead measurement and F2 for ear measurement mode. Press and hold F2 for 6-9 seconds when the thermometer is off.
When it starts blinking, press F2 within 5 seconds to change the units. 20 readings memory recall. It can measure in both Fahrenheit and Celsius. Visual and auditory alarm when the temperature exceeds 99.5 °F.
- Easy to use, fast and efficient
2. The close measurements between readings convince people that they can rely on the forehead thermometer
3. Getting a quick result and no waiting for a second reading
1. Perfect for checking on a sleeping baby or child
As you’ll know, the temperature is often taken by using the mouth, rectal, armpit, ear, or forehead type thermometers. But the temperature readings vary counting on which one you employ, and you would like an accurate blood heat to work out if a fever is present.
There is no exact formula between temperature measurements but generally, the correlation of temperature results are as follows:
The average normal oral temperature is around 98.6°F (37°C). A rectal and ear temperature is5°F (0.3°C) to1°F (0.6°C) higher than an oral temperature.
An armpit and forehead (temporal) temperature is 5°F (0.3°C) to1°F (0.6°C) lower than an oral temperature.
It is important to recollect if you purchase a dual (ear + forehead) type thermometer you can’t measure the same temperature value and this example is normal.
The Innova Forehead and Ear Thermometer Manufacturers
Thermometer manufacturers provide information on how to use it. Please be sure to read and follow the instructions to obtain an accurate temperature. The information can also include how the results of the device correlate with the results from other methods of taking a temperature.
Plastic strip thermometers measure skin temperature, not blood heat but they aren’t recommended for general home use.
When you talk together with your doctor about your temperature, make certain to mention what method was wont to take the temperature.
There is a temperature comparison table by the method below. Find the method that you used to take a temperature. Find the correct temperature range. Look for the temperature range of the other methods that correlate to the method you used. For example:
If your 2-year-old child’s oral temperature is101°F (38.3°C), his or her rectal or ear temperature maybe around 102°F (38.9°C). Remember. a toddler features a fever when his or her temperature is4°F (38°C) or higher, measured rectally.
To fix a temperature that is reading incorrectly on a digital thermometer, all you need to do is press the reset button. With many thermometers, this is just a matter of holding down the power button for a few seconds, but you may have to check with your manual to make certain.
The sensitivity and specificity for the non-contact thermometer is 97%. The negative predictive value is 99%, which is especially important to rule out fever and avoid unnecessary laboratory workup.
Body temperature is a measure of your body’s ability to make and get rid of heat. If you tell your doctor about your temperature reading, be sure to say where it was taken: on the forehead or in the mouth, rectum, armpit, or ear. Normal: The average normal temperature is 98.6°F (37°C).
Tested on one infant, one 4-year-old, and two adults. Even my handheld IR thermometer for checking building material temperatures is 99.9% accurate on human skin.
