How to Use Your Braun Age Precision™ Thermometer
3 Simple Steps:
1. Switch on the thermometer by pressing the On/O button
Youwillhearashortbeepanddisplaysegmentcheckwillbeperformed.Afterthesegmentcheck,last
temperaturereadingwillbedisplayedfor2seconds.Subsequently,theageiconsandagerangewill
cycle,untiltheAgePrecisionbuttonispressed.
2. Select the age by pressing the AgePrecision™ button
WhentheAgePrecision™buttonispressed,theagerangeiconswillstopcycling,andstopontheage
range icon that was showing when the button was pressed. Keep pressing the button until the desired
agesettingisdisplayed.Thethermometerhas3agesettings:
• 0-3months
• 3-36months
• 36monthsuptoanadult
Aftertheageisselected,theagerangeiconremainssteadilylit.
Thedisplaywillshowthreedashedlinesandthethermometer
is ready to start the measurement.
3. Take the measurement by placing it on the measurement site.
Oncetemperatureriseisdetectedbythermometerinmeasurementmode,itwillbegintomeasure.
Ifthethermometerdoesn’tmeasureatemperaturerise,theageiconandthreedashedlineswillbe
shown until the thermometer automatically turns o.
Aftermeasurement(generally8secondsaftertemperaturechangeisdetected),theconrmation

Tips for Measuring at Dierent Sites
Under-the-arm (axillary) use
Thismethodisusedforbabiesandyoungchildren.
1. Wipe the underarm with a dry towel.
2.Placetheprobetipunderthearmsothetipistouchingtheskinandpositionthepatient’sarmnextto
thepatient’sbody(Fig.1).
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 aect the reading.
