Frequently Asked Questions
How do I measure with the Philips Avent ear thermometer?
To take your temperature with the Philips Avent Smart Ear thermometer please first ensure the following things:
Thermometer at room temperature
Make sure the thermometer has the same temperature as the room you are measuring in. If you are unsure, allow the thermometer at least 30 minutes to adjust.
Ear at normal temperature
Make sure that the ear itself is at normal temperature. For example, the ear has not been covered, or the person measured has not been lying on their ear, in a warmer or colder area, in a warm pool or bath, etc.
Clean the thermometer
Clean the sensor on your thermometer using a cotton swab and then gently place the tip just inside your ear canal, pointing towards the eardrum - you don't need to place it any deeper. Note: the readings in each ear can be a little different, so measure in the same ear consistently.
The person measured should sit still.
We advise you not to use the device if you are using ear drops or other ear medication. In this case, measure the temperature in the untreated ear (if possible).
It is not necessary to take more than one measurement. However, if you do, you might notice subtle variations in readings. This is normal. In this case, the app will show the latest reading.
If you are worried about your temperature, or a fever persists, we recommend that you consult with your doctor.
