How/When to Use:

Oral temperature is taken through the mouth in order to determine if you or a family member has a fever. Normal oral temperature for adults are 37° C (98.6° F). The normal oral temperature for a child is between 36.4° and 37.4° C (97.6° and 99.3°  F). Place the thermometer into mouth making sure it does not read more than 35.6° C (96° F) before usage (if so, shake and check before using). Close your lips gently around the thermometer placing the metallic end under your tongue for 3 minutes making sure you do not bite. Remove without touching the tip to get proper reading. Clean by washing with soap and warm water as hot water may break the thermometer.
