Title: (EN) INFRARED MEDICAL THERMOMETER
(FR) THERMOMETRE MEDICAL A INFRAROUGES
Abstract: front page image
(EN) A self-contained handheld infrared med- ical thermometer having an elongated probe (15) that is reciprocably movable between a re- tracted position, located fully within the ther- mometer housing (11), and an extended posi- tion, located exterior to the housing. When ex- tended, the probe (15) is adapted for insertion into a patient's outer ear canal to measure the patient's body temperature. When the probe is retracted within the housing (11), a reference plate (21) is pivoted in front of the probe (15), to facilitate calibration. Advancement of the probe (15), to its extended, operative position automatically pivots the reference plate (21) away from the advancing probe (15) and, in ad- dition, automatically advances a disposable protective cover (43), from a container (45) for a large number of such covers into a position where it automatically stretches over the advan- cing probe (15) to provide hygienic protection.
