“The Exergen Temporal Artery Thermometer is a non-invasive system that can easily be used for newborns, infants, children or adults. Temperature is taken by gently placing the thermometer on the forehead while it measures the balance between the tissues warming from arterial blood and tissues cooling from the environment. This unique design allows you to take the temperature of the skin surface over the temporal artery and uses advanced infrared technology to do so.”-Exergen
I have never owned a Forehead Thermometer, so I was excited to try the Exergen TemporalScanner Thermometer.
“With a gentle stroke of the forehead it captures the naturally emitted heat from the skin over the temporal artery, taking 1,000 readings per second, selecting the most accurate. With its patented Arterial Heat Balance system the TemporalScanner measures ambient temperatures, mathematically replaces the small temperature loss from cooling at the skin, and displays an accurate arterial temperature.”-Exergen
I found it very simple to use. First things first, remove the plastic cap. I totally didn’t notice this little cap the first couple times I tried the thermometer and it was working right. So make sure you take that off first.
To take a temperature: You place the thermometer on the forehead then as you press and hold the button you swipe it across the forehead until you reach the hairline. The red button lights up as you do this. There is a red light on both sides so you can see it as you take the temperature.
I love how easy it is to use and that it doesn’t take very long. My baby girl doesn’t get frustrated or upset cause it is so fast. You can even take a temperature while your child sleeps! And it is very accurate, I tried it on all my family members and it works great each time giving a regular temperature for each (none of us are sick).
I also really like that it has reminder instructions printed directly on the back of the thermometer just in case you forget or a care taker has to use it, very nice and convenient.
I highly recommend the Exergen Temporal Artery Thermometer for your family! I am loving mine!
