The Omron MC-720 is a digital thermometer with forehead mode
This mode in thermometer displays the oral-equivalent value of the measured forehead temperature
This unit measures the temperature at the surface of the forehead by sensing infrared emission of the skin at the measured point, and then calculates the oral-equivalent value using a unique algorithm based on actual body temperature survey data
This Omron thermometer is meant for gentle non intrusive temperature measurement
The digital thermometer is designed with an easy to hold design and features a backlight which provides visibility in the dark
The Omron thermometer allows to measure forehead temperature in just 1 second and is suitable for all ages
The thermometer is equipped with 2 modes - silent and buzzer beep
This forehead mode thermometer is touch free and is easy to use
This thermometer also allows for last reading recall
This digital thermometer has a LCD screen display and has a storage capacity of 25 readings
Thermometers are used to measure fever in humans or tell you how cold it is outside. Made up of thermo (heat) and meter (measuring device), the meaning of the word thermometer is straightforward. Thermometers measure temperatures in degrees, according to either the Celsius or Fahrenheit system.
Digital thermometers are temperature-sensing instruments that are easily portable, have permanent probes, and is equipped with a convenient digital display. The way a digital thermometer works depends upon its type of sensor. Sensor types include resistance temperature detector (RTD), thermocouple and thermistor.
One can use any thermometer, with mouth open, put the end with the red, blue, or silver-coloured tip under your tongue. Close your lips gently around the thermometer. Do not bite the glass thermometer.
Cleaning of the thermometer is also important. It's important to clean the thermometer after each use, but how you clean it depends on what type of thermometer you have. For glass thermometers, wash it with soap and cool water, then rinse and dry. For digital thermometer you can wipe it with a cloth soaked in alcohol or water. Allow it to air dry.
