Frequently Asked Questions
Some of the common errors we have found when using our thermometers for the first time are: 1) the thermometer is not correctly positioned in the mouth, under the tongue, back by the molars. 2) the patient does not keep their mouth closed for the entire 60 seconds. 3) the patient is talking when the thermometer is in their mouth. 4) the patient had something hot or cold to eat or drink within 15 minutes of taking their temperature. 5) the thermometer was in the patient’s mouth for less than 60 seconds. 6) when using Tempa•DOT®, the healthcare provider did not wait 10 seconds after removing it from the patient’s mouth before recording the reading. 7) the patient just came in from an extremely warm or cold environment.
