The Medline ear thermometer works well for all ages, from small children to adults. It is designed like other ear thermometers to have a one-touch operation that is non-invasive. Even those with sensitive ears will find the Medline thermometer tolerable.

No matter where you are, or what units you want to measure in, the Medline thermometer is ready, offering both Fahrenheit and Celsius settings.


Medline wanted to ensure the device remained sanitary, so besides implementing the commonplace disposable probe covers, they also improved the way covers are removed. With a mechanical feature, the thermometer can release the used covers into a garbage without contact. This helps prevent the spread of any germs from the patient’s ear to the person taking the temperature.  The model comes with 20 disposable probe covers.

Medline Tympanic Ear Thermometer is latex free and reusable.

To increase accuracy, the Medline thermometer reads from the tympanic membrane. This location, commonly used by other similar thermometers, helps give an accurate reading of a person's body temperature in Celsius or Fahrenheit.

Frequently Asked Questions

I have heard Medline’s replacement covers are more expensive than competitors. Is that true? A 100-count pack of covers will cost about $13 at Walmart. Comparably, a 40-count pack of Braun covers will cost about $6. To this regard, the Medline covers are actually cheaper though this is often because they are sold in larger quantities.
Is the screen backlit? Yes, the thermometer screen is backlit, so you can read it in the dark.
How do you change from Celsius to Fahrenheit? With the thermometer in the OFF position, hold down the scan button. Then hold the ON/MEM button until the LCD display shows °F, then release the scan button.
