The DET-306 infrared forehead thermometer is specifically designed for safe use on the forehead. The Infrared Forehead Thermometer is a device capable of measuring people’s body temperature by detecting the intensity of infrared light emitted from the forehead.
It converts the measured heat into a temperature reading displayed on the LCD. The infrared forehead thermometer is intended for the intermittent measurement of human body temperature from the skin surface of forehead by people of all ages. When properly used, it will quickly assess your temperature in an accurate manner.
Depending on various skin types and thickness, there may be temperature difference. When the indoor temperature is significantly different, the body infrared thermometer should be placed in that room for 15-20 minutes before using.
Infrared Forehead Thermometer measures core body temperature,which is the temperature of a body’s vital organs. (See Figure 1) This thermometer is designed to measure the temperature of the skin surface over the temporal artery, a major artery of the head. The temporal artery is connected to the heart via the carotid artery, directly leading from the aorta, the main trunk of the arterial system. It offers constant blood flow. Therefore, body temperature changes are reflected sooner in the forehead than they are in other parts of the body such as oral, rectaland underarm.
