    Temperature readings vary from person to person. Although there is no one “normal” temperature reading, a temperature, taken orally, ranging between
    97°F and 100°F is considered normal. A rectal temperature is generally 1° higher and an underarm (axillary) temperature will be 1° lower.
    The best method to determine your own normal temperature is to use the thermometer when you are feeling well. Record your
    reading twice a day (early morning and late afternoon). Take the average of the two temperatures. This is considered your normal
    body temperature. Any variation from it may indicate some sort of illness and you should consult your physician.
    Your VICKS
    ComfortFlex™ Digital Thermometer is a 3-in-1 thermometer for oral, rectal, or underarm use.
    Whichever method is used, it is recommended that for 15 minutes prior to use, avoid eating or drinking any liquids,
    exercising, taking showers or baths, or smoking.
    Disposable probe covers are provided with your VICKS
    ComfortFlex™ Digital Thermometer. Place a cover on the probe tip each time the thermometer is
    used to help prevent spread of germs. Additional probe covers can be purchased at most drug stores or pharmacy departments.

    Oral Use
    It is suggested to use a probe cover for Oral Use. Discard the probe cover after taking a
    It is important to place the tip of the thermometer well under the tongue to get a good, accurate
    reading. (Fig. 5) Place sensor tip in areas marked with “”. Keep mouth closed and sit still to help
    ensure an accurate measurement.
    When the peak temperature is reached (usually 12 seconds), 2 beep signals will sound and the “°F”
    sign will stop flashing. The temperature is now ready to read and will not change when the
    thermometer is removed.
    Dispose of used probe cover and wash the thermometer as recommended
    Under-the-arm (Axillary) Use
    This method is used for babies and young children.
    1. Wipe the underarm with a towel.
    2. Place the probe tip under the arm so the tip is touching the skin and position your arm next to your body (Fig. 6).
    With a young child, it is sometimes helpful to hug the child to keep their arm next to their body. This ensures that
    the room air does not affect the reading.
    3. When the peak temperature is reached (usually 11 seconds but sometimes longer for this method), 2 beep
    signals will sound and the “°F” sign will stop flashing. The temperature is now ready to read and will not change
    when the thermometer is removed.
    Note: This method produces a temperature 1° lower than a temperature taken orally.
    4. Wash the thermometer as recommended.
    Rectal Use
    Commonly used for babies, young children, or when it is difficult to take an oral or underarm temperature.
    1. Cover the thermometer’s tip with a probe cover and lubricate with a water-soluble jelly for easier
    insertion. Do not use petroleum jelly. Read the label of the lubricant to be sure you are using the
    right kind.
    2. Lay the patient on his/her side. If the patient is an infant, the proper position for a baby is to lay on
    its stomach with legs hanging down, either across your knees or at the edge of a bed or changing
    table. This positions the infant’s rectum for safe and easy insertion of the thermometer.
    3. Gently insert the tip of the thermometer NO MORE THAN 1/2 inch into the rectum. If you detect resistance, stop. Hold the thermometer in place
    during measurement.
    4. When the peak temperature is reached (usually 10 seconds) 2 beep signals will sound and the “
    F” sign will stop flashing. The temperature is
    now ready to read and will not change when the thermometer is removed.
    NOTE: This method produces a temperature 1
    higher than a temperature taken orally.
    5. Dispose of used probe cover and wash the thermometer as recommended.

    For readings between 97.0-98.9°F, the LCD will display green as the backlight color indicating the measurement is within an acceptable range.
    For readings between 99.0-100.9°F, the LCD will display yellow as the backlight color indicating a slight elevation in temperature measurement.
    For readings 101.0°F and above, the LCD will display red as the backlight color indicating possible fever.
    The Fever InSight feature continues for about 7 seconds.
