Customer Reviews

This is very easy to use and works great.
Gussie
When using it to take a temperature multiple times in a row, it will actually give me different readings each time, sometimes up to a degree and a half different.
Lucy Nelson
It is soooo much easier to use than any of the other types of thermometers!

I'm an ER nurse and we use Exergen's temporal artery thermometers in our ER. They are much more accurate than underarm or in the ear, although the gold standard is a rectal temperature, which can be upsetting to children.
I actually wrote my Master's research paper on these thermometers, and here are a few tips in order to use them accurately:
1. run the thermometer from forehead (above the eye) all the way into the hairline. DO NOT LIFT the thermometer at all!!!
2. repeat this 2 more times
3. take the HIGHEST of the 3 readings. It is always important to take the HIGHEST as it is most accurate. There is a chance it didn't read right on the artery so it wouldn't be as high, which is why it is best to do 3 readings.
4. clean the head of the thermometer with a Q-tip and some alcohol occasionally to help it read accurately.
5. If your child is sweaty, the sweat dries off quickly and cools their skin temperature, so it isn't as accurate! In this case, it is better to run the thermometer over their carotid artery on their neck- off to the side of the voicebox. Run the thermometer side to side, and not up and down.
If you follow all of these steps, this thermometer is quick, easy and very accurate. I highly recommend it over any other form of temperature taking for young children.

My biggest worry was how accurate can these be? I am always the skeptic and trust mechanical processes more then electronic ones. Some things we did to try it out.

1.) Test it on me - both readings came out about 98.8 which is good because the average human body temperature is 98.6.
2.) Test it on my wife - we have always known she runs about a degree cooler then the average. We know this because this always occurs during hospital visits or doctor visits, she just runs cooler. We tested it on her three times and it came back about 97.5 which is what we expected.
3.) A sick baby - our daughter's daycare told us yesterday that she was running a 104 degree temperature. They used an in ear thermometer to test her. We picked her up and tried the Exergen on her and consistently came back with a 106 degree temperature. We took her to the ER where the ER nurses tested her using their high end forehead thermometer (like ours, only industrial and hooked to a big machine). It also read at 106 degrees. Routinely through the night they kept taking her temperature using their industrial forehead thermometer. When they would leave the room, I would get up and test her with the Exergen thermometer and it always came back the same temperature as the hospital's readings.

Suffice to say that I very much trust this thermometer to give us an accurate view of our daughter's temperature.

This has been a fabulous product. I guess it is that time of year, but our kids have been sick a lot and we've had the chance to use it several times already. It is soooo much easier to use than any of the other types of thermometers! The kids don't kick and scream, in fact, they think it is kind of a fun way to check their temperature. It only takes about 3 seconds to read someone's temperature. It seems to be very accurate (based on the fact that it reads very close to 98.6 degrees when someone doesn't have a fever).

The unit looks and feels like it is well-made. I consider it one of the best investments we have ever made and I would definitely buy it again if I had it to do all over.

I wanted to try this becauce it is what they use at the doctor's office and it seems so easy and accurate. Aside from the fact that all of the other options just do not make sense--I don't want to use a rectal therm for my toddler, he will not tolerate a therm in the mouth or under the arm, and the ear therms don't seem accurate.
This is insanely easy to use. There is just one button! I tend to take two readings to assure an accurate reading, and my only gripe is that there is no "reset" button to use between readings. The only option is to turn it off and then on again, which I worry is depleting the battery, but it's not a huge deal. I also like the idea of the antimicrobial head so that I don't have to clean it with alcohol. Overall, the best option I have found for a squirmy toddler, as well as the whole family.

The easiest product yet to get an accurate temperature! I've compared many and tested several, plus talked with the 'experts' in the field of medicine and this has, by far exceeded the relative ease of use and reliability of the other thermometers out there. Simple to use. Nothing required in the mouth or ear, just a quick swipe to the forehead and you're done. The temperature displays in a clear, digital format. I recommend this product!

I work as a home health nurse. The thermometer is super efficient and easy to use, but it won't read if it is cold. Once it warms up, it reads just fine. The often leave my nursing bag in the car, and my stuff gets cold for the night. If I warm up the sensor with my finger, I can often get it to read. It is definitely more accurate than other methods of taking a temperature.

this thing gives a fast reading and quick. a little advice, do it twice (it takes like five seconds). if you lift it off the skin or press the button before you touch the skin it can mess up the reading. it is worth it to be sure. a little bummed that there isn't a shutoff for the beeping. maybe my kid is just to light of a sleeper but she wakes up every time i check her. other than that it works amazing. wish i had got one sooner.
