Luckily no one has had a fever so I have only used the digital oral thermometer to measure a baseline temperature. It is a good idea to know what your regular temperature is. My natural temperature is in about 97.4 F so if my temperature was 100 F I know that is 2.6 F above my normal rather than less than 2 F above the average normal temperature.
This thermometer was easy to use and understand. The thermometer is suppose to have a special beep to let you know it is measuring a fever on someone but sick no one has been ill I have not heard it yet. I do like that feature of beeping to let me know that it s considered a fever. The thermometer also comes with a carrying case, that way you can carry it in your purse or baby bag and know it will stay clean in the case until it is needed.
