Product Review: Exergen Temporal Scanner


I don't usually do product reviews, but I am so in love with this product that I have to rave about it. What is it? It's a thermometer that works by measuring the temperature emitted by the temporal artery in the forehead. It's quick, easy, painless, and completely non-invasive. Just press the button and sweep it across the forehead, and it works on newborns on up to adults. The first time I saw it was at our pediatrician's office. The nurse used it on one of my kids, and I said, "You're kidding, right? That can't be accurate." She tested it against a conventional oral thermometer and came up with the same exact reading. So I bought one for home and it's gotten lots of use, especially over the last week as my kids are all currently taking turns with fevers.

I got one of these back in April when my oldest had pneumonia. Best invention ever!! Complete lifesaver when all three kids are sick and I don't have the time to disinfect the thermometer all the time.
