The NexTemp® Plus Thermometer is individually wrapped and intended for single patient use. It is designed for high accuracy readings and to prevent patients from exposure to infections such as C. difficile, MRSA, Norovirus, and Rotavirus. NexTemp® thermometers circumvent this risk by providing a clean, sterile instrument that is used with a single patient and then discarded. Unlike Tempa·DOT™, the NexTemp® thermometer is reusable, and automatically resets itself after use.
1. Slide thermometer into rectal sheath and apply lubricant to sheath exterior
2. Insert thermometer into rectum for 3 minutes
3. Remove thermometer from rectum, remove sheath, and wait 10 seconds
4. Read the temperature scale by locating last black dot and discard all items when done
The thermometers displayed read 98.6°F and 38.7°C. After the temperature reading is taken, the thermometer will reset. If the thermometer resets itself before the temperature signal can be read, simply retake the patient’s temperature using the same thermometer.
Range: 96.0°F to 104.8°F or 35.5°C to 40.4°C
Accuracy: ±0.2ºF or ±0.1ºC
NexTemp®’s accuracy is the same as, or better than, other thermometers commonly used in a healthcare setting. Each of the dots has its own formulated temperature point that fires at a specific temperature. When a dot fires, the color changes from green to black. The number of temperature dots that fire is dependent on the patient’s temperature. The last black dot provides the accurate temperature reading.
