Disposable thermometers are commonly utilized in hospitals. The main advantage they offer is that they cannot be used on more than one person. What this means is that the risk of contagion or infection by spreading disease is virtually non-existent.
If you have purchased a set of disposable thermometers, you need to tear one off from the strip, peel open the pack, remove the unit by its handle, and avoid touching the dotted section.
Place the latter under your tongue and leave in position for approximately one minute. Remove the thermometer and wait for ten extra seconds before getting your reading. Use the dots to figure out the temperature measured by the product.
