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:

I have used it on myself and my 3 month old, as long as it's held correctly against the skin and the button is pushed and released correctly it works fine. It's hard to use when baby is awake and squirming as it has to be put against forehead, button pressed and held while swiping to temple. It's easier while she's asleep. I really like not having to do recta! temp when I think she feels too warm!

      Comments about Exergen Corporation Exergen Temporal Artery Thermometer:

      This thermometer is too confusing to use. It has one button that turns it on, off, and takes the temperature. Half the time I get a Celsius reading, and the other half I cant get it to read at all. I gave it 2 stars because my husband has used it with success before, but not often!

                        This product is too expensive and not accurate. It was 2 degrees off from a traditional thermometer. Use the one that put under the arm pit is better and more accurate. I would not recommend.

                          After reading many pro and con reviews I decided to buy this and draw my own conclusions. My son was using an axial thermometer for my first grandchild and I wasn't sure I trusted the results. We have been very satisfied with the temporal scanner but it is not as easy to use as one might think. I can scan the grandbaby's forehead 3 times and get different results - not wildly different but different. I think there is a learning curve to using it correctly but once you 'get the knack' it is a trustuworthy and convenient tool.
