Ear Thermometers Deliver Most Precise Readings
If you are the parent of a young child, you probably know all too well that the average baby gets seven fevers a year. Clinical studies prove that ear thermometers reflect changes in core body temperature faster than oral thermometers and more accurately than rectal or temple measurements.

Rectal temperatures lag behind changes in core body temperature, so they are not always a reliable indicator. Temple and underarm measurements take skin temperatures, not core body temperatures, so they can be influenced by external factors such as sweating or drafts. Likewise, oral temperatures can be influenced by external factors such as drinking, eating, and breathing.

The eardrum, however, shares its blood supply with the temperature control center of the brain, so changes in body temperature are reflected sooner and more accurately in the ear than in other places.

Pre-warmed Tip and Guidance System Ensure Accuracy Every Time
When you use the Braun ThermoScan, you can be sure you'll receive professional-level results every time. Unlike other ear thermometers, Braun ThermoScan ExacTemp features a patented pre-warmed tip. This feature minimizes the cooling effect on the ear canal that can result from using room-temperature tips, meaning you get the most accurate results possible.

Additionally, the ThermoScan's unique ExacTemp technology with Guidance System confirms with a light and a beep when you have taken a proper measurement. An ExacTemp light flashes during the measuring process and signals when the probe has not been placed correctly in the ear canal. The light shines continuously once the temperature has been taken, and a beep signals that you have an accurate reading.

And when you have to regularly monitor your baby's temperature, the ThermoScan's memory function facilitates by keeping track of the development of the temperature, storing up to eight different results.

Infra-Red Technology and Flexible Tip Make Measurement Fast and Gentle
The Braun ThermoScan is the perfect thermometer for parents who have fussy children. The ThermoScan measures the infrared heat generated by the eardrum and surrounding tissue, giving an accurate temperature in just a few seconds. With such a fast measurement time and with a small, soft, flexible tip, the ThermoScan is as gentle as can be. In fact, the ThermoScan is so gentle and fast, you can take your baby's temperature while he or she is sleeping, without worrying about an unscheduled wake-up.

Lens Filters Improve Accuracy and Safety
To ensure the accuracy of every temperature reading, a new clean lens filter should be used for each measurement. Lens filters protect the tip from scratches, as well as from impurities such as earwax, which might adversely affect the accuracy. Furthermore, exchanging the lens filter before every temperature reading virtually eliminates the risk of spreading germs from one person to the next.

For ease of use, a lens filter detector makes sure that a lens filter always is in place, and a lens filter ejector makes removing used lens filters as easy as can be.

We recently purchased this ear thermometer after reading a number of positive reviews online. The cost initially gave us pause, but since this product will be primarily used on our small children quality, accuracy and reliability were important considerations and outweighed the cost factor. Our last two ear thermometers were unreliable and didn't last long. We've used this product reliably for a couple months now and are quite satisfied.

What recently sold us though was a recent Emergency Room visit to the Fairfax INOVA Children's Hospital which is a fantastic children's hospitals in Northern Virginia (our baby is now OK). While there we were surprised to see the doctors and nurses all using this same product. This is a state of the art hospital where they spare no expense, and they were using this ear thermometer. Their units are used constantly and if this product can stand up to that type of abuse, I'm sure it will work for us for years to come.

*** Update 1 - 1/26/2013 - Well over three years of use and it's still going strong. I'm still extremely satisfied.
*** Update 2 - 3/3/2014 - We had an ER visit this Saturday when my 6 yr old son dislocated his finger on a jungle gym and they used one of these to take his temp. Looks like they are still popular.
*** Update 3 - 3/24/2014 - This morning, after 4.5 years of surprisingly frequent use on our two young kids it's kaput. New batteries wouldn't revive it. Took my daughter to her pediatrician this morning (it's a large pediatric practice with 8-10 doctors) and guess what they used to take her temp? Yes, exactly, this same thermometer. I'll be ordering a new one from Amazon today.

Bought this couple of weeks back consequent to my son developing high fever and which fluctuated considerably. This caused the Red Cross $9.00 digital thermometer useless as it takes approx. a minute (under armpits) to record temparature. Our doctor advised us to buy Braun based ear thermometer.

First off - there are quite a models available. After taking to doctor and doing research - the 2 new models are IRT 4520 and IRT 4020. These are EXACT copies (all functionality) like their PRO 4000 versions!
The ExacTemp feature has a pre-heated tip which is more comfortable for the ear.
The older models (PRO 3000) is about $80, but uses lithium batteries and I don't think has pre-heated tip.

Has a "sort of" battery meter. Starts to show - that battery's low, flashing means - will effect results. (Very good)

Usage:
Switch on, place tip (with tip cover, without cover, doesn't work)
push START and WITHIN TWO SECONDS you get the temperature.

Notes: Slightly hold the ear in order to place the tip INTO THE EAR HOLE to get best INTERNAL EAR CANAL reading. The readings are stored for access later - total 8 memory readings.
Auto shut-off: 60 sec.

The storage is into a white canister type case, which has HORIZONTAL standing (not good - as VERTICAL standing would have been better or if provided ALSO - good).

The given 21 nos. of lens caps are very little. Thankfully, the whole package of lens caps goes INSIDE the thermometer case, storing them together.

Size-wise it's a bit thick and thus slightly problematic to carry along but due to it's accuracy/etc. worth the hassle.

The ejector is very useful. Just press it and the lens cap is THROWN forward. Be careful, it's literally EJECTED out.

I have taken this to work at a hospital and compared it to the Pro model and they are not any different. My review is kind of a mix of comments I have posted in offering some information about these thermometers as some people have not had good results with them. It helps to understand the reasons for getting temps that frustrate you. As a nurse in critical care areas I have a lot of use with these and find them to be the best way (with the exception of a internal temperature probe placed in an uncomfortable location)I hope this is helpful.

Thermometers cannot read too high. The differing temps between ears are likely the result of method, like how you were pointing it into your ear, maybe differently between each one, or how clear the ear canal is, like is one side cleaner than the other. The difference between tympanic and oral is established to be different. There is an article on webmd that summarizes the typical ranges and differences between temperature locations. Many people falsely focus on getting the exact temp but this is futile because your body is always changing, heart rate, blood pressure, everything is in constant change based on environments. What you should be looking for is a trend, are you gradually going up in temp? or going down? I use the same style in the ICU and even there it is understood that you will have some slight changes even between ears, pick the one that is higher because that is more likely to be the cleaner best side. Don't get frustrated by the machine, just learn the correct use. (webmd com/parenting/rectal-ear-oral-and-axillary-temperature-comparison)

I don't like the forehead therms because I think it's too easy to lift off and drop my reading down. I absolutely choose the ear therm.
