Vicks, Underarm thermometer
READ AND SAVE THESE INSTRUCTIONS
Thank you for purchasing the VICKS
Underarm Digital Thermometer, a professionally accurate instrument for
comfortably measuring body temperature. Please read these instructions carefully to ensure accurate temperatures and
safe operation. When used properly, this high quality thermometer will give you years of accurate, dependable use.
Underarm Digital Thermometer is designed specifically for measuring underarm (axillary) temperatures
of young children. It’s perfect for children who are too old for rectal measurements yet too young to hold a
thermometer in their mouth.
Unlike regular thermometers, the unique ComfortDisc™ of the Vicks
Underarm Thermometer is designed to find
the “hotspot” easily and comfortably every time.
IMPORTANT SAFETY INFORMATION
High, prolonged fever requires medical attention especially for young children. Please contact your physician.
Do not allow children to take their temperatures unattended.
Do not allow children to walk or run during temperature taking.

Underarm Digital Thermometer, call

Temperature readings vary from person to person. Although there is no one “normal” temperature reading, a
temperature, taken underarm, ranging between 96 - 99°F is considered normal. A rectal temperature is generally 2°
higher and an oral temperature will be 1° higher.
The best method to determine your child’s normal temperature is to use the thermometer when they are feeling
well. Record the temperature twice a day (early morning and late afternoon). Take the average of the two
temperatures. This is considered your child’s normal body temperature. Any variation from it may indicate some
sort of illness and you should consult your pediatrician.
Underarm Digital Thermometer is designed specifically for underarm use. It is recommended that for
15 minutes prior to use, your child should avoid eating or drinking any liquids, physical activity, or taking showers
OPERATING YOUR VICKS
Press the On/Off button to activate the thermometer. A beep will sound and the
display will come on. The display will first show the LCD display test (Fig. 1) the last
reading. After 5 seconds, the display will be in the ready mode (Fig. 2).
UNDERARM (AXILLARY) USE
1. Wipe the underarm with a towel.
2. Place the ComfortDisc™ under the arm so the sensor is touching the skin and position the arm next to the body
(Fig. 3). With a young child, it is sometimes helpful to hug the child to keep their arm next to their body. This
helps hold the thermometer steady and ensures that the room air does
not affect the reading.
3. When the thermometer first beeps (a series of 10 beep signals), this
provides a quick temperature measurement. To get a good, accurate
reading, continue to leave the thermometer in place under the arm for
up to 5 minutes.
Remember that this method produces a temperature about 1° lower
than a temperature taken orally and about 2° lower than rectal.
4. Turn the thermometer off by pressing the On/Off button. If you forget to turn it off, the thermometer will
automatically turn off after approximately 9 minutes.
5. Wash the thermometer as recommended.
TO RECALL THE LAST TEMPERATURE
Press and hold on/off button for 1.5 seconds and the last reading will show in the display with the letter “M” shown
under the degree sign for approximately 3 seconds.
