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.
Features
Temporal artery temperature scanner
Temperature is taken by placing the thermometer over the temporal artery so temperatures can be read through non-invasive procedures. This is the gentlest way to take a baby’s temperature.
Infrared technology
Temperatures are read through infrared technology to provide accurate temperature readings. The thermometer first scans and captures naturally emitted infrared heat, then measures the ambient temperature of the site where the temperature is being taken. Arterial heat balance software then synthesizes these readings to determine body temperature.
Clinically tested
This thermometer has been clinically tested for accuracy in comparison to rectal thermometers. It is accepted for use in major hospitals so you can feel safe using it on anyone at home.
Patented software
The patented software provides arterial heat balance. The process accurately measures the balance between the tissues warming from arterial blood and tissues cooling from the environment.

I purchased this thermometer after seeing my pediatrician use it. I was impressed with how quick and easy it was to take my son's temp. The key to getting an accurate temp it to READ THE INSTRUCTIONS and FOLLOW THEM!
It specifically tells you how to 1)slide the thermometer across the forehead; 2) what to do if there is perspiration present; 3) that a temp taken from the temporal artery may be 1 degree HIGHER than an oral or underarm temp and 4) to get a feel for your or your child's normal average temp by taking it several times during a day, when they are NOT sick. Everybody has a different normal temp. That's why some people are warm and some are cold at the same time.
Please people, for the sake of others who may or may not buy a product based on a review, read the instructions and follow them. That's why they are included with the products that you buy!

I have used this product many times since my daughter's birth. I personally do not have a problem with it. I will take her temperature several times and will get the same reading each time, or if it is different, it's off by maybe .3 degrees. I have also used an underarm thermometer to check its accuracy, and this temporal thermometer seems pretty good. My husband, however, has a heck of a time with this. He can take our daughter's temperature 3 times and get 3 completely different readings (98.6, 99.7, 100.1 for example). He has become frustrated with it and now refuses to use it. My guess is if you don't do it exactly right, you will not get an accurate reading. And who really wants to take their child's temperature several times in an effort to get an accurate temperature?

    Comments about Exergen Corporation Exergen Temporal Artery Thermometer:

    My husband and I use this on our baby as well as on ourselves. We've checked our daughter's temperature a few times against the rectalthermometer in the beginning, and they have always matched. There is a little bit of skill involved in getting a good reading - my husband has a harder time sweeping it across our daughter's forehead so usually ends up having to take the temperature 2-3 times. My main complaint is the beeping that it makes the entire time you are taking the reading. We've never used this on a sleeping baby, but I feel like it would wake my daughter if we tried.
    We found it to be a good alternative to the rectalthermometer, but as our daughter has gotten older (now 18months), she does fight it and make it harder to use, sometimes requiring two people.

    good first line of defense

    By Ed

    from Philadelphia, PA

    Comments about Exergen Corporation Exergen Temporal Artery Thermometer:

    My daughter had a high fever as registered by it, but not super high so we weren't super concerned. When describing the symptoms to a friend they said that more than likely her temperature was much higher and wasn't registering properly on the thermometer.

    So now we use this if they feel hot, if it's over 100-101 we wait an hour, check again, and if high go for the rectl thermometer. I'll also use this at night if they are sleeping.

            Very easy to use especially on a sick infant. It's the best thermometer I have ever bought. It doesn't wake up my baby when she's sleeping.

                Comments about Exergen Corporation Exergen Temporal Artery Thermometer:

                I was very excited for this thermometer but I was very dissapointed with it. It's surprisingly difficult to swipe it across a squirmy newborn's forehead. The first time I used it I was about to pack up my daughter and head for the ER when it gave a read out of over 100.4 degrees. But upon using three other digital thermometers they all agreed her temp was at least 2 or 3 degrees lower. I used the temporal one again and this time it gave me a lower temp, just a few minutes after the 100.4 reading. Waste of money, I don't trust it. Just buy a fast reading digital and take baby's temp rectally...it's not that bad and it's way more accurate.

                  My LO was sick and no matter how hard I tried I could not get a good reading under his arm plus it made him so mad when i tried to take it he would scream and cry. So we went to the store and bought this one. Truly amazing! It takes thr temperature quickly and my LO laughs as it runs across his forehead. No more tears for baby or me!
