  • A. It will register as low as the scale on it goes! Are you checking dead bodies?!?

  • A. You shake it down (just like the old mercury thermometers) until the fluid line inside is well below 98.6. Then you place the thermometer in the person's mouth with the bulb part under the tongue. You are supposed to leave it there at least 5 minutes and while it is there, the fluid inside is rising to the temperature of the person. I would check to see if you can take a child's temperature with this because it is glass and appears to be thin glass at that. Anyway, when the time is up, (it doesn't beep or anything so you have to time it yourself. It can't hurt to stay longer so if you just guess on the time, no no harm done.) So when the time is up, you look at the unit to see where the line has risen to and that is your temperature. If you have never read a traditional thermometer, it might take some practice. But it is by far a more accurate reading.

  • A. The directions are right on the back of the package. You shake the thermometer by snapping the wrist briskly until you are below 98.3? then place it under the tongue, mouth closed for 3 mins. Then read.

  • A. Put it under your tongue for 5-8 minutes, this one is very slow. Have someone shake it down for you. Better yet put it in under your arm in your armpit and then lower your arm to hold it tight. Leave it for 8-10 minutes then read it. Shaking it down to 97degrees or so is illustrated on the Internet: http://nursing411.org/Courses/MD0531_Taking_Vital_Signs/2-11_taking_vital_signs.htm Take it back and get a digital $2.99 . Push the button on the right. Put it in your mouth, when it beeps take it out and look at the black numerals. This is your temperature. Write it down on paper with a pen or pencil, push the button again if the numerals still show and the window with the numerals should go blank. Don't leave the 88:88 showing. PUSH the button so this goes off.

It is okay, if your have an inferno temperature, otherwise it only goes to 98⁰ even. Physical trainers, diabetics and others need more accuracy about their means temperature. It would be better to buy two cheap $2.99 numbers for a back up thermometer, although most of us will buy one of these and two of the cheap ones or one of these and a more expensive digital one. It does work if your temperature is nearing 100. Below I finally got it. I ran warm water on it for a second at which it hit over 100⁰ and shook it down to 97 something. It is still hard to shake down.

I bought one last night after buying too many digital ones over the last 20+ yrs of being a mom. I love this one, i'm old school so I don't feel like having to wait 3 mins. is a big deal. No batteries and it's accurate, took me about 20 shakes to get it back down to 98.6 which I don't mind either. Nice sturdy case, and well priced too.

Since I broke my last mercury thermometer, my family has been through 6 digital ones costing from $1.50 to $60.00 each and none of them has performed well. I decided to try this Geratherm Mercury-Free Oral Glass Thermometer while looking online for some temperature taking device that had at least some degree of accuracy.The strange shape takes some getting used to but it works GREAT so far. I still use my digital protectors because they fit and it cuts down on the washing of the unit. You can't beat the old mercury ones for accuracy but since we cannot get them anymore this is a pretty good alternative. My family is pleased with them! Oh and after an extensive internet search, I found the price at Walmart to be the best.

It takes THREE minutes to get the temperature. The great thing about these 'new' old school thermometers is that the temp will be there a half hour later! Someone complained that it didn't move - that's a benefit not a problem! If you are charting temperature for Wilson's Temperature Syndrome you can be taking your temperature while driving and then record it later. Oh - a little hint regarding 'shaking it down'. It takes a lot of energy and snapping of the wrist which can be difficult for some. If you put the thermometer with the metal tip down into a sock and twirl it around, it will go down very quickly and easily. Just make sure you don't bang the counter or anything else while twirling! Peace and love - stay healthy!
