Title: PROBE COVER WITH LUBRICATION WELL
Abstract:
A disposable, molded probe cover (10) for use with an ele ctronic thermometer (11) is disclosed comprising an elongated hollow body (12) which defines a distal end (22) and a proximal end (24). The distal end (22) of the body (12) has a convex-shaped surface that defines a lubrication well (20) adapted to hold a lubricant (34) therein, while the proximal end (24) forms an opening (26). The opening (26) communicates with a chamber (28) that extends the entire length of the body (12) and is sized and shaped to receive a probe (48) of the electronic thermometer (11).
