Title (EN) INFRARED MEDICAL THERMOMETER
(FR) THERMOMETRE MEDICAL A INFRAROUGE
Abstract:
(EN) A self-contained handheld infrared medical thermometer having an elongated probe (15) that is reciprocably movable between a retracted position, located fully within the thermometer housing (11), and an extended position, located exterior to the housing. When extended, 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 addition, 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 advancing probe (15) to provide hygienic protection.
(FR) Un thérmomètre médical à infrarouge autonome possède une sonde allongée (15) pouvant effectuer un mouvement réciproque entre une position rétractée entièrement à l'intérieur de l'enceinte (11) du thermomètre et une position étendue à l'extérieur de l'enceinte. Lorsqu'elle est sortie, la sonde (15) est adaptée pour être introduite dans le canal auditif de l'oreil externe d'un patient pour mesurer la température du corps du patient. Lorsque la sonde est rétractée dans l'enceinte (11), une plaque de référence (21) pivote devant la sonde (15) pour faciliter le calibrage. L'avance de la sonde (15) vers sa position déployée de fonctionement fait pivoter automatiquement la plaque de référence (21) en l'éloignant de la sonde (15) qui avance et, de plus, fait avancer automatiquement un couvercle jetable protecteur (43) à partir d'un conteneur (45) contenant un grand nombre de ces couvercles vers une position où il s'étire automatiquement en recouvrant la sonde (15) pour assurer une protection hygiénique.
