What is a Contactless Forehead Infrared Digital Thermometer? 

A thermometer is an essential addition to any first aid kit or medicine cupboard to help you keep an eye on your temperature when you come down with an infection. This Contactless Forehead Infrared Digital Thermometer is easy-to-use, providing you with accurate results fast. This thermometer is suitable for all the family and can even be used in the workplace, too.

 

When is a temperature considered high?

Everyone's normal body temperature will be different and it can change throughout the day. Usually, a high temperature is considered to be 38°C or above. This is sometimes referred to as a fever. A high temperature can be caused by many different things, but it’s typically caused by your body fighting an infection.

 

What is the difference between a digital thermometer and a mercury thermometer?

Mercury thermometers are the device that many people still think of when they picture a traditional thermometer. They’re made up of a glass tube with a line of mercury in the centre that moves up or down to show you your temperature. Digital thermometers are a more recent invention, but they’re far more accurate and are much quicker to use.

 

We would always recommend using a digital thermometer over a mercury thermometer when taking someone’s temperature. Mercury thermometers can be more likely to break, causing a risk of injury from glass splinters or exposure to mercury, which is highly poisonous.

 

When should I check my child's temperature?

If your baby feels hotter than usual on their forehead, back or stomach, or they’re feeling sweaty or clammy with flushed cheeks, you may need to check their temperature. The NHS recommends using a basic digital thermometer and placing it under their armpit for about 15 seconds, or for however long it says in the manufacturer’s instructions. This is the recommended way to take a child’s temperature until they’re 5 years old.

 

Storage information

Store in a cool, dry place out of sight and reach of children. If the thermometer is not being used for long periods of time, it’s recommended that you remove the battery to extend the battery life.

You have a Contactless Infrared Thermometer for Ј54.99, is this device acceptable to be used for measuring someone's temperature for Covid for office? My number is 07881830062, I would appreciate if you could just take me through how the device can be used.

The thermometer is fine for office use. It basically can measure the measure at 2cm-5cm distance at the forehead. If the employee is found to be above 37.8C, this is an immediate warning sign for covid.

Can you use the contactless thermometer on newborns and children? Many thanks

That’s fine to use with newborns and children
