To make body temperature measurements
After monitoring temperature, process the sensor as follows.
Expression MR400 Instructions for Use
Ensure that a jacket has been placed on the sensor (see Placing the
Sensor in a Jacket, on page 11‐5).
If needed, apply lubricant to the jacket for insertion into the
Never use petroleum-based lubricants. A water-based lubricant (for
example, Surgical Lubricant, REF 989803168891) can be used to
Insert the sensing tip of the sensor into the patient at an
Never insert the sensor beyond the patient segment of
the sensor. Insertion beyond the patient segment can
lead to difficulties removing the jacket from the
If desired, change the unit of measure (Celsius is the default
setting); see TEMP Menu, on page 11‐10, for details.
Perform the monitoring procedure, allowing at least 2 minutes for
the measurement to stabilize; see TEMP VS Box, on page 11‐8, for
After the procedure, remove the sensor from the patient.
Ensure that the entire jacket is removed from the
patient when withdrawing the sensor. Failure to do
so can potentially lead to jacket material being left
inside the patient.
Immediately clean and disinfect the sensor (see Post‐Measurement
Processing on page 11‐7).
