Preparing the Person being Evaluated for No-contact Infrared Thermometers (NCIT)

In preparation for taking a temperature measurement with an NCIT, the person using the NCIT should typically ensure that

  • The test area of the forehead is clean, dry and not blocked during measurement.
  • The person’s body temperature or temperature at the forehead test area has not been increased or decreased by wearing excessive clothing or head covers (for example headbands, bandanas), or by using facial cleansing products (for example cosmetic wipes).

Using the NCIT:

The person using the device should strictly follow the manufacturer’s guidelines and instructions for use for the specific NCIT being used. In particular, the following are typical instructions for NCIT usage.

  • Hold the NCIT sensing area perpendicular to the forehead and instruct the person to remain stationary during measurement(s). (See Figure 1)
  • The distance between the NCIT and forehead is specific to each NCIT. Consult the manufacturer’s instructions for correct measurement distances.
  • Do not touch the sensing area of the NCIT and keep the sensor clean and dry.
