Know how to take the thermometer Before using a mercury thermometer, hold it by the top (not by the bulb) and shake it with a quick movement of the wrist until the mercury is placed below 35 ° C. If you are worried about breaking the thermometer, do this operation on a bed. Wait at least 30 minutes after eating, drinking or smoking before taking the temperature in the mouth, as these activities alter the temperature of the mouth and produce inaccurate readings.
Hold the thermometer with the lips, not with the teeth . Breathe through the nose, not through the mouth, so that the ambient temperature does not affect the reading. Leave the thermometer in place for at least three minutes (some experts prefer to keep it for five to seven minutes.)
Place the thermometer under your tongue in one of the “bags” on either side of your mouth, and do not right above. These bags are closer to the blood vessels that reflect body temperature.
In children under five years of age, take rectal rather than oral readings. The rectal temperature is generally one-half higher than the oral one. Rectal thermometers are recognized because they have shorter, round bulbs. To use a rectal thermometer, place the child face down in your lap and keep one hand on your buttocks to keep it from moving, says Dr. Donald Vickery. Lubricate the end of the thermometer with Vaseline. Carefully insert the thermometer between two and three centimeters. The mercury will begin to rise after a few seconds. Remove it when the mercury no longer goes up, between one and two minutes later.
After using it, wash the thermometer with cold soapy water. Never use hot water. And never keep it near a heat source. Use the digital thermometer following the instructions that accompany it. Next, wash the tip with soap and warm water or rubbing alcohol. Do not completely submerge the instrument or splash it with water on the part where the numbers appear: it may damage the thermometer. Remember to change the batteries every two years.
