Narrator: Before using the tympanic thermometer, calibrate it according to the manufacturer's instruction regularly. Use a new probe cover on the thermometer every time. Straighten the baby's ear canal to detect the temperature accurately. For babies under one year old, pull their ears straight back. For children over one year old and adults, pull their ears backward and upward. Every time, take 3 measurements for the same ear and take the highest reading as the baby's temperature. Always refer to the manufacturer's instruction for the reference normal temperature range, as it varies with different brands and models. Clean the probe according to the instruction every time after use. Discard the probe cover after use.
