Product Name: Infrared No-Touch Forehead Thermometer

Product Model: PT3

CAUTION

(1) Measurements

  1. Thermometer readings should be regarded as a reference. Do no attempt self-diagnostics or self-treatment using the temperature readings. Please seek professional medical advice when necessary.
  2. There is no absolute standard for human body temperature. Knowing your own normal body temperature range is important to accurately determine if you have a fever.
  3. Make sure that the forehead of the subject is free from sweat, cosmetics, dirt, or grease before measuring.
  4. Patients should not drink, eat, or be physically active before/while taking a reading. Wait 30 minutes before taking a measurement. Temperature readings taken when a body is in a state of stable equilibrium is more accurate and useful as a reference.
  5. Do not take temperature measurement over scar tissue, open sores or abrasions.
  6. Do not measure body temperature from scar tissues on the forehead as such tissues will affect temperature conduction of the body.
  7. If there is a temperature difference between the thermometer storage area and the new ambient environment around the forehead, please let the thermometer sit within the new environment for 30 minutes before taking the measurement.
  8. Do not measure body temperature immediately after consuming a drug that raises body temperature. Temperature readings taken at this time will not be accurate.
  9. It is normal for readings taken from continuous measurement to fluctuate within a small range. During continuous measurements, the subject’s body temperature may be transmitted to the thermometer, affecting measurement accuracy. We recommend taking only up to 3 continuous readings within a short period.
  10. Do not directly face the sun or an air outlet of an air conditioning or radiator device during the measurement as this will cause changes to the forehead temperature. Measurements should be taken in a stable environment where possible.
  11. Do not measure body temperature in an environment with strong EM interference (examples include places close to a working microwave, induction cooker, or cellphone in-use) as EM interference may cause errors in the reading or even device failure.
  12. This product should be considered a personal device. Clean and sanitize the product properly to prevent cross-contamination.
  13. To clean a dirty thermometer probe, gently swipe the probe using a cotton swab dipped in 75% alcohol. Let the cleaned thermometer sit for at least 15 minutes before taking more measurements.
  14. This infrared thermometer meets requirements established in ASTM Standard (E1965-98) Except of clause 5.2.2. It displays subject’s temperature over a range of 89.6°F-109.2°F.

Make sure you use the thermometer correctly each time, in these situations below, you should wait for 30 minutes before testing:

  • User and the thermometer should be in the same ambient temperature for at least 30 minutes
  • After using fever a cooling patch or ice bag to cool down, please dry the forehead and stay calm around 30 minutes.
  • Make sure the forehead of the subject is free from sweat, cosmetics, dirt, or grease before measuring.
  • Do not measure body temperature from scar tissues on the forehead as such tissues will affect temperature conduction of the body.
  • To make sure your hair will not affect the measurement, you should expose your forehead to the ambient temperature for around 30 minutes.
  • If there is a temperature difference between the thermometer storage area and the new ambient environment around the subject, please let the thermometer sit within the new environment for 30 minutes before taking the measurement.
  • Do not measure body temperature immediately after consuming a drug that raises body temperature. Temperature readings taken ta this time will not be accurate.

YES. iHealth PT3 is not harmful to children or adults, it only measures infrared light, it doesn’t produce infrared.

Keep the thermometer out of the reach of children. For accidental swallowing of the battery or other components, please contact emergency services immediately.

iHealth thermometer is only designed to test the human body temperature with the measurement position as the center of the forehead surface. It is not designed to measure objects and ambient temperatures.

Not all of the forehead surface is appropriate for measurement. Because the distribution of subcutaneous vessels is different from place to place, we recommend the center of the forehead surface for the correct measurement position for iHealth PT3. All of the results measured from other parts of the forehead may not be accurate.

iHealth thermometer PT3

Measurement position: center of the forehead surface

Keep the probe 1.18 in (3cm) away from the forehead. (the optimal distance is about the width of an adult’s index finger)

Step-1

Aim the thermometer probe at the center of the forehead from less than 1.18 in (3cm) away.

Step-2

Gently press the measurement button to begin the test.

Step-3

The thermometer vibrates noiselessly once the reading is complete.

iHealth PT3 thermometer is a high-tech infra-red (IR) thermometer designed to take human body temperature by measuring the energy of IR emitted from the forehead.

Troubleshooting
  • Please make sure you are not in a high electromagnetic radiation environment like close to cell phones or functioning microwave.
  • Please make sure that the forehead is free from sweat or moisture. Do not measure when sweating, please keep skin dry for 30 minutes before measuring.

Your temperature doesn’t stay same all day, and it will vary throughout your lifetime, too. Some things that cause your temperature to move around during the day include:

  • How active you are
  • What time of day it is
  • Your age
  • Your sex
  • What you’ve eaten or had to drink
  • (If you’re a woman) where you are in your menstrual cycle.

Medical research hasn’t determined an exact correlation between oral, rectal, ear, armpit, and forehead temperature measurements. Generally, the correlation of temperature results are as follows:

  • The average normal oral temperature is 98.6°F (37°C).
  • A rectal temperature is 0.5°F (0.3°C) to 1°F (0.6°C) higher than an oral temperature.
  • An ear (tympanic) temperature is 0.5°F (0.3°C) to 1°F (0.6°C) higher than an oral temperature.
  • An armpit (axillary) temperature is usually 0.5°F (0.3°C) to 1°F (0.6°C) lower than an oral temperature.
  • A forehead (temporal) scanner is usually 0.5°F (0.3°C) to 1°F (0.6°C) lower than an oral temperature.

The reference body site of PT3 is oral. Please compare with oral temperature from the testing result. Ear and rectal temperatures are normally higher than oral and forehead temperatures.

When people develop a fever, the heat conduction will take time to arrive at the forehead, there is a time gap. Suggest measuring every 5 minutes until the temperature stabilizes.

  • Make sure the forehead of the subject is free from sweat, cosmetics, dirt, or grease before measuring.
  • User and the thermometer should be in the same ambient temperature for at least 30 minutes.
  • Always hold the thermometer when taking a reading. Do not move the thermometer until you feel the final vibration.
  • Don’t take a measurement while or immediately after nursing a baby.
  • Users should not drink, eat, or be physically active before/while taking the measurement.
  • Remove hats and wait 30 minutes before taking a measurement.
  • Before taking a measurement, remove dirt or hair from the forehead area. Wait 30 minutes after cleaning before taking a measurement.
  • Always take the temperature exactly as directed. Temperature results may vary if positioned in the wrong location.
