Product Description

Amazon.com

When you suspect a fever, it’s often difficult to get a restless toddler to stay still long enough to take a basal temperature--and you can forget about taking a rectal temperature. This super-fast ear thermometer offers the best solution, providing accurate and instant 1-second results. The thermometer has a soft sensor tip that is gentle and safe on little ears, and comes with 22 sensor covers for the tip (more available separately) for comfortable and accurate readings. With the power on, the thermometer beeps when ready. Parents simply insert the tip into an ear and press the scan button. Within a 1-second interval, the thermometer’s MultiScan technology reads infrared heat generated by the eardrum, and takes 12 readings. Those readings are instantly averaged and converted to an oral equivalent. The ear thermometer beeps once when the temperature has been recorded and is normal, and beeps several times in a row to indicate a fever over 99.5 degrees. The lighted display makes it easy to read results in a dark room. And, just in case you turned off the unit before getting the reading, the ear thermometer has a fever-tracking memory that recalls the last 12 temperatures taken, allowing you to monitor your child’s health through the duration of an illness. The thermometer has a protective cap when not in use, and stands up for easy storage in a medicine cabinet. Also included is an applicator for the sensor covers and two AAA batteries. This ear thermometer is hospital tested and approved. --Cristina Vaamonde

The probe covers on the other hand are TERRIBLE!
Amazon Customer
The rest of the time the readings tend to be on the low side and can fluctuate by a number of degrees from readings taken within seconds of each other.
S. Simmons
My son had a very high fever according to my mother thermometer and mine kept saying his temperature was only 97 degrees.

I purchased this because I was tired of long waits to get temperatures in the mouth or under the arm. Reading the packaging made this thermometer seem the fastest and most dependable.

Although the readings were consistent and fast, they constantly fell short of accurate. My wife, myself, and our daughter all had readings of 93 degrees. My wife and I both read the directions and both tried multiple ways (angles and depths) of taking our temperatures. We cleaned out our ears, and we always got low temperatures.

you would be better off sticking a meat thermometer in your ear... it would be more accurate. readings may be correct for a turtle but no good for a human. keep this thing away from your ears. should be recalled.

Typing in all caps, with hundreds of exclamation points would not convene my dislike for this product. My daughter clearly has a fever, she is burning up when I took her temperature it was 93.4... huh? she is borderline hypothermic? I don't think so. This thing is a piece of junk. I took my temperature multiple times and never got the same reading twice.

I purchased this because of the great price, and what I got was a broken package and corroded batteries. It needless to say did not work at all.

This thermometer is no better than measuring your child's temperature with your hand. I've had it for about 2 years, and I initially thought it was inaccurate because my child was smaller, maybe she had smaller ear canals, etc. Now at almost 4 years old and staying perfectly still, this themometer will give readings of 102.0 to 104.5 in the same sitting. Luckily, at this age, taking an oral temp is almost doable. I'm a pediatrician, and tracking the height of the fever is sometimes important. Before trying one, I never recommended ear thermometers to any of my patients. Now, after using one, that hasn't changed.
