Non-Contact infrared Body Thermometer
Model: HTD 8808
Please read this manual before operating this device, important safety information inside.
1-Advice for 1st use:
For stable and reliable results, it is essential to check the Non-contact Body IR thermometer and adjust as needed with the following steps:
1st step: Take the temperature of a person using a conventional thermometer and get the test result, 37.5°C (99.5oF) for example.
2nd step: Take the temperature of the same person using the Non-contact Body IR thermometer keeping 5 -15cm (2 -5.9 in) between the thermometer and the forehead (Be sure to remove any obstacle on the forehead which may affect the testing result, such as hair, perspiration etc., If you get 37.5°C (99.5•F), that is to say the Non- contact Body IR thermometer is properly set and ready for use.
If you get a lower temperature, 36.4°C (97.5° F) for example, the difference is 37.5-36.4=1.1 oC (2.0° F). You should adjust the temperature on the Non-contact Body IR thermometer and add the difference, e.g. 1.1°C (2.0°F).
To adjust the difference, short press SET button, the screen displays F1, press UP or DOWN button to add the difference, e.g. 1.1 oC (2.0°F), then short press SET button several times until it power off automatically.
3rd step: Take the temperature again using the Non-contact Body IR thermometer to check whether the thermometer is properly set.

- General Knowledge of Body Temperature
Human body is a very complicated comprehensive system, and the body temperature is a very important indicator of the body health conditions. We can take the temperatures of our forehead, ear, oral, and auxiliary etc to check our health conditions. Different temperature will be for different body parts, please kindly check the values as below.
|Measurement||N0r»aI Temperature (”C)||Normal Temperature (°F)|
|Rectal||36.6 to 38||97.8 to 100.4|
|Oral||3s.s to 37.5||95.9 to 99.5|
|Oral||35.5 to 37.5||95.9 to 99.5|
|Auxiliary||34.7 to 37.3||94.4 to 99.1|
|Auricular||35.8 to 38||96.4 to 100.4|
|34.7 to 37.8||94.5 to 100.0|
The human body temperature also varies throughout the day, it can also be influenced by numerous external factors: age, sex, type and thickness of skin.
Normal Temperature According to Age:
|Age||Normal Temp C||Normal Temp F|
|0-2 years||36.4 to 38.0||97.5 to 100.4|
|3-10 ears||36.1 to 37.8||97 to 100|
|11-65 years||35.9 to 37.6||96.6 to 99.7|
|n65 years||35.8 to 37.5||96.4 to 99.5|
Women body temperature is also different from the men body temperature, usually higher than that of men’s by 0.3°C(0.5°F), moreover, the women body temperature who is under ovulatory time is usually higher by 0.3°C(0.5° F) to
0.5 oC(0.9°F) than that of the body temperature when she is
Not under ovulatory time. Basing on this knowledge, many women take their body temperature every morning and draw out the diagraph of their base body temperature, which will clearly show when the women is under ovulatory time, then the women can plan their babies or contraception’s.
