How to measure body temperature with infrared thermometer

Infrared thermometers use infrared rays to measure body temperature. There are two commonly used ear thermometers and forehead thermometers. The ear thermometer is a contact type, which is mainly used to measure the temperature in the ear canal. When using it, use one hand to gently straighten the patient’s ear canal, insert the temperature measuring head into the ear canal, and press and hold the upper temperature measuring button for one second. The accurate reading can be read from the LCD screen, it is very safe to use, and the result is more accurate. The most accurate part of the forehead thermometer measurement is the center of the forehead of the patient and above the center of the eyebrows. Point the infrared detector at this part and keep it vertical. Be careful not to be covered by hair. If you sweat, you must dry it first. The infrared detector is between the infrared detector and the forehead. The distance between the two is about 3~5cm, and after holding for a few seconds, the body temperature reading can be displayed.
