Oral, Rectal & Underarm Test
When you or a family member is ill, you want the highest caliber of accuracy you can get in a thermometer. You may have some reservations about the less invasive thermometers such as the forehead or ear thermometers. They are certainly convenient, fast, easy, and non-invasive. But it is possible that they won’t offer the same level of accuracy as a true digital thermometer. You have heard that thermometers taking temperature readings rectally, orally, or under the arm may be the very best and most accurate approach. But what thermometer should you purchase? You remember the warnings about glass thermometers; how they can break and cause injury. You remember the warnings about toxic mercury in thermometers. You know you want to avoid those, because you want to keep your family safe. Consider the Omron MC 246 digital thermometer.
Omron MC 246 uses thermistor technology for the highest level of accuracy. Thermistors are resistors that are exceptionally sensitive to temperature, and are known to be predictable, precise, and extremely reliable. The MC-246 takes between one and two minutes to complete the measurement, so you know the technology has had time for an extremely accurate reading. This thermometer will store your last temperature reading, so you can see if the fever has changed. It features a handy buzzing notification to let you know when your measurement has completed, so you don’t have to keep looking at the thermometer.
Do note there are factors that will interfere with the accuracy of any digital thermometer. You will always want to take two readings back to back for accuracy. You need to obviously to position these in the same area. For example, you want to place the thermometer underneath the tongue as far back as comfortable, not under the tongue for one reading, and barely under the tongue with the mouth open for the second. You need to wait 30 minutes after bathing, exercising, eating, or drinking for an accurate oral temperature. Additionally, strong electromagnetic fields (even cell phones) have been known to compromise the accuracy of a digital thermometer. Fortunately, the Omron Digital Thermometer MC-246 comes with an easy-to read user guide to make temperature taking accurate and easy.
