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 really liked the product once you figure out how to use it. If you don't do it correctly you enter the memory menu which is confusing because you think that is the actual temp, you realized that once it makes a sound that's when you are getting a real time measurement. Once we figure out how to use it, it was really nice and you don't have to struggle with you lil one to take their temperature because you use their forehead to do so.

        I have always wanted a good working and reliable thermometer and I finally found it in this one, I tested it and received the same reading or very close to it, that it's accurate. The price was a great price as well. I paid so much more for a thermometer that you get the temperature from the ear and it was a different reading every time within seconds too. One would be 100.5 then seconds later 98.6, then 99 so it was all over. Trust me buy this one, it's great and no special batteries either, it uses 9V which they include. Very pleased with the item.

            Comments about Exergen Corporation Exergen Temporal Artery Thermometer:

            This is my third baby thermometer and it will be the first I will actually keep to use. I have one previously that was used three different ways for young babies but that won't work with my 2 year old any more who barely sits still. We purchased another that had to be held slightly away from her head for 3 seconds…she would look up every time and we never got an accurate read. My husband bought this one a few weeks ago and it has been great from the beginning. I do test 2 or 3 times to make sure I get accurate readings but it is easy to use. My daughter wants to do it herself and always lets me get "momma's turn" first. It will also work well for our second baby that is due soon. Would definitely recommend.

                  While we haven't used this product yet a lot, it is so much faster and there is so much less crying involved than with the underarm thermometer we were using. I haven't needed it yet because my baby hasn't felt feverish since I bought it and it seems to like the number 98.1 on people who aren't hot to touch. Hopefully it will work when needed!
