Let’s look at these 6 steps one by one.
Prepare the thermometer
As this is slightly a different method than usual. We first need to prepare the thermometer. Covering the thermometer probe is necessary in this method. This is something that can be easily done with the help of a prop cover. That prob cover can easily be bought from any pharmacy.
Once you cover the probe with the cover. This is the time to lubricate it. The lubrication can be done with a water soluble jelly. Please do remember that you should not use petroleum jelly. Only the water-soluble gel is recommended.
Prepare the patient
Once done now this is the time to prepare the patient. Patients should be laid down in the proper form. In the case of young babies. The children should be laid on their stomachs. The position of the legs should be hanging around. This position can easily be obtained at the edge of a table. You may also obtain this position at the edge of a bed or even the changing table.
The insertion of the thermometer
Now you may insert the tape into the rectum. Do remember that this process should be very gentle. Do not push the thermometer. Make a gentle move. Stop as soon as you observe any hurdle. The insertion of the tip should not be more than a half inch.
Measurement of the temperature
The thermometer will take about 10 seconds to reach the exact temperature. once the thermometer is reached at the exact temperature it will beep. Secondly, this will also be displayed on the display screen. You will clearly see that the blinking of foreign height signs will be stopped. it appears permanently and without blinking.
Read the temperature
Now you can easily observe the temperature but do remember that in this method that reading you get is one degree higher than the normal temperature. Or the temperature you will observe in case you use the arm or mouth method.
Take care of the thermometer after use
Remove the cover from the probe and dispose of it properly. The thermometer should be washed properly. The procedure of the washing should be done as instructed.
Vicks rapid read thermometer battery replacement
The thermometer is equipped with the best possible piece of technology. This is the reason that the battery comes with a thermometer that has a very long life. But everything finishes one day. This is the reason that this battery needs replacement after extensive use.
Now the question is how will you know that the battery actually requires replacement. For this, the indication will be provided by the thermometer itself. You will see this indication in the lower right corner of the display.
The procedure of changing the battery
- Un cover the battery
- Remove the battery
- Replace the battery
- Cover the battery again
- Discard the old battery
Now we will look at these five steps one by one.
To uncover the battery you need to remove the battery cap. This is something that can be done by sliding the battery cap away. Once this is done now this is the time to move on to the next step.
Take a nonmetallic object. This nonmetallic object should be in that shape that can remove the battery from the battery compartment.
once the battery is being removed now is the time to install the new battery. But for this, you should know the specifications of the new battery. Two different types of batteries can be placed in it.
- 1.55V, L41 alkaline
- SR41 silver oxide
Even the equivalent batteries can also be used.
This is very important to install the battery in the proper direction. Otherwise, the battery will not be able to supply the energy to the thermometer. As this energy is not being supplied the thermometer will not work at all. For this, you need to position the battery in such a way that the positive side should face the display.
Put the battery cap back on the compartment. Do remember that this battery cap is actually installed to save the compartment from undue atmospheric effects. The most common of these atmospheric effects is moisture. Once placed make sure that it is fixed properly. So that the battery safely remains inside and at its position.
ATTENTION: THIS IS REALLY VERY IMPORTANT TO DISCARD THE OLD BATTERY PROPERLY. The young children get it and can create trouble for themselves and finally for themselves.
