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?

          I found this thermometer to be very easy to use. When you have to check your little ones temperature when they are not feeling good the last thing you want to do is use a thermometer that makes them even more uncomfortable. This thermometer allows you to get there temperate without any added discomfort.

              Comments about Exergen Corporation Exergen Temporal Artery Thermometer:

              My whole family loves to use this over any other thermometer. As long as used as directed, you will receive the same, accurate reading. You can also take your child's temp behind their ear. Our favorite was that it took seconds to get the reading.

              It took my parents and in-laws a couple of tries before getting the hang of it (if they would have watched when we showed them, then they would have had it from the get-go)! :)
              Also, my oldest will actually stop and point to his forehead when we tell him it is time to take his temperature. He thinks it is sort of a game and insists on looking at the numbers after the reading.

              We started off using the regular thermometer, but as my first got older, the more he wiggled, the more I wondered whether the reading was accurate.

              You can even find a $5.00 mail in rebate if you search online to use after buying this product!

                      I'm absolutely in love with this thermometer!!! I have the ear, pacifier, and a few normal thermometers and this one is by far the easiest one to get a reading from with a squirmy toddler and infant. I really wish I would of got this when my son was first born.

                          I bought this when my son was a few months old. I loved it at first but if the baby is clammy like they are with fevers it doesn't read correctly. I am in nursing and similar thermometers are used in the ER but those are obviously hundreds of dollars. This thermometer stinks, I checked my temperature orally and axilary and there readings were normal. I used this thermometer and got 96.7 or 97.0 or 95.3 I really liked it at first because to check my son's temp under his arm he screams like someone is hurting him so this was convenient, for a little while. My son uses it as a play toy now.
