Operating Your Vicks® Speedreadtm Digital Thermometer

TURNING THE UNIT ON

  1. Turn unit on by pressing the On/Off button (Fig. 1).
  2. Wait for unit to get ready
    • A beep will sound and the display will show a test (Fig. 2).

    • After about 5 seconds, the display will show it’s ready (Fig. 4).

SELECTING A TEMPERATURE LOCATION

Oral Use

  • It is suggested to use a probe cover for Oral Use. Discard the probe cover after taking a
    temperature.
  • It is important to place the tip of the thermometer well under the tongue to get a good, accurate
    reading. (Fig. 5) Place sensor tip in areas marked with “✓”. Keep mouth closed and sit still to help
    ensure an accurate measurement.
  • When the peak temperature is reached (usually 12 seconds), 2 beep signals will sound and the “°F” sign will
    stop flashing. The temperature is now ready to read and will not change when the thermometer is removed.
  • Dispose of used probe cover and wash the thermometer as recommended

Under-the-arm (Axillary) Use

This method is used for babies and young children.
1. Wipe the underarm with a towel.
2. Place the probe tip under the arm so the tip is touching the skin and position your arm next to your body
(Fig. 6) . With a young child, it is sometimes helpful to hug the child to keep their arm next to their body.
This ensures that the room air does not affect the reading.
3. When the peak temperature is reached (usually 11 seconds but sometimes longer for this method), 2 beep
signals will sound and the “°F” sign will stop flashing. The temperature is now ready to read and will not change
when the thermometer is removed.
Note: This method produces a temperature 1° lower than a temperature taken orally.
4. Wash the thermometer as recommended.

Rectal Use

Commonly used for babies, young children, or when it is difficult to take an oral or underarm temperature.

  1. Cover the thermometer’s tip with a probe cover and lubricate with a water-soluble jelly for easier
    insertion. Do not use petroleum jelly. Read the label of the lubricant to be sure you are using the
    right kind.
  2. Lay the patient on his/her side. If the patient is an infant, the proper position for a baby is to lay on
    its stomach with legs hanging down, either across your knees or at the edge of a bed or changing
    table. This positions the infant’s rectum for safe and easy insertion of the thermometer.
  3. Gently insert the tip of the thermometer NO MORE THAN 1/2 inch into the rectum. If you detect resistance, stop. Hold the thermometer in place
    during measurement.
  4. When the peak temperature is reached (usually 10 seconds) 2 beep signals will sound and the “°F” sign will stop flashing. The temperature is
    now ready to read and will not change when the thermometer is removed.
    NOTE: This method produces a temperature 1° higher than a temperature taken orally.
  5. Dispose of used probe cover and wash the thermometer as recommended.

• For readings between 99.0-100.9°F, the LCD will display yellow as the backlight color indicating a slight elevation in temperature measurement.
• For readings 101.0°F and above, the LCD will display red as the backlight color indicating possible fever.
The Fever InSight feature continues for about 5 seconds.

1/2 minutes.
