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 love how easy and quick it is to use. You can use it quickly without waking your kids. It is very quick on registering the temperature and easy to read the numbers in the dark. Very simple to use.
        It's what I used when I worked as a nurse at the hospital.
        The only thing I have learned is it's probably not the most accurate for newborns. My pediatrician said axillary (under the arm) is better for newborns. Recal is most accurate but more invasive.
        Conclusion: I love this thermometer and highly recommend it to people except for the newborn stage. I am glad I bought it though and I know I will be using it tons but I just bought a inexpensive oral/axillary one for my newborn until she's a few months older.

            As a new mom I bought this thermometer thinking it would be easy to use, actually it's not. It takes forever to scan and read read. This product doesnt work well at all. The one you put in the baby's ear is the best one you can get. don't waste your money.

                Over all easy to you and very handy when it comes to checking your little ones temperature it only take a few seconds to read so by the time your little one realizes what's going on your down and don't have to worry about your baby panicking. The only thing you have to be careful for is to make sure you're actually reading a calibration and it's not the last reading you took because of the memory functions. Other than that I would recommend!

                I was looking for an easy way to take temperature for all my children. I can't decide how accurate this is. It seems like it gives a different temperature each time I take it, even within a few minutes. All the information says that this is normal, but is it? I wouldn't recommend this for accuracy for sure...

                    My little one had a high fever and I could not get an accurate reading with the ear thermometer we had. I sent the hubby out to get a different one and he came back with this and an oral thermometer. Although the oral one does give the most accurate reading I didn't want to use it over night when sleeping. This thermometer was PERFECT! It still gives an accurate reading and is not invasive at all as you just swipe it across the forehead (just remember to take off the protective cap!). Little didn't even stir as I did it which meant she got to sleep soundly and it gave us piece of mind overnight! We have even used it on ourselves!
