When your child is sick, you don't want to fumble with a complicated thermometer. Get a quick, easy, and accurate temperature reading with the Safety 1st Quick Read Ear Thermometer. You'll appreciate the ergonomic design that is easy to hold when positioning the thermometer. This is extra helpful if you need to keep one hand free to steady a fussy child. With just one button, positioned just where your finger can find it easily, the thermometer is also easy to use. Press it for one second to take a reading. The Quick Read thermometer will beep once to confirm that the reading is complete and beeps a bit longer to alert you immediately if fever is detected. The large digital display is easy to read and includes icons to indicate either “normal” or “fever” temperature readings. The previous temperature reading will display at startup to help you keep track.
