Exergen Temporal Artery Scanner Thermometer Review

Exergen Temporal Artery Scanner Thermometer

logo

When you have a sick child in the house or family member what is the main thing you always need to have on hand? A trust worthy accurate thermometer that you know will work the first time.

I have fought with my son when he was a infant to sit still long enough to hold that little thermometer under his arm. He would scream and cry from me holding him still and I would get frustrated because it wouldn’t work fast at all!

When your child is sick you want that temperature fast, accurate and easy.

The Exergen Temporal Scanner is the answer to everything you would want in a thermometer. With a quick 3 second scan across the forehead the thermometer reads with am advance infrared technology that gives you a quick, consistently accurate measurement.

“The Temporal Scanner Thermometer has been clinically tested for accuracy compared to rectal thermometers and temperature sensors inserted in the heart during the course of patient treatment and accepted for use in major hospitals” The scanner is designed to read the temperature of the skin directly over the temporal artery for the most accurate reading.

I have found this thermometer to be fast and easy to use. Both of my kids actually enjoy having their temperature taken and will bring it to me and ask me to take their temperature.

Photo3

To use the thermometer you place the head flat against the forehead and hold down on the button, then moving the thermometer across the forehead you will hear a triple beeping when it is done reading. The display is clear and easy to see and read.

Photo4 Photo5

If you remove the battery cover you will find where you can change the reading from Fahrenheit to Celsius by simply adjusting a black little probe inside. When the thermometer is not in use it comes with a cover for the head to protect the sensor from being damaged while being stored. I would absolutely recommend the Exergen Temporal Scanner to anyone who is looking for a great accurate and affordable thermometer.

    Best Selling Thermometer 3 Years In A Row!! =)

  2. Rebecca D says:

    I love how easy it is to use. This would be great when checking on sick little ones at night. You don’t have to wake them to get a temp!

  3. THis would make life so much easier!!!

  4. Ashley says:

    Love this thermometer!

  5. Leslie Galloway says:

    I learned that Exergen TemporalScanner Thermometer is the Best Selling Thermometer at Retailers for the Third Year in a Row.

  6. Wow, what an incredible device. Having one at home would make life so much easier especially at 3 o’clock in the morning. The accuracy is a selling point for me. Thank you.

  7. Jessica E Ledford says:

    I learned that these are available at Wal-Mart, Babies R’ Us, http://www.babiesrus.com, Walgreens, http://www.walgreens.com, Toy’s R’ Us, http://www.costco.com, and http://www.baby.com

  8. Brianna L. says:

    I learned that “it takes 1,000 readings per second and selects the most accurate.” I love that it is “almost impossible to miss the temporal artery during scan.” I have a MOBI temporal or ear thermometer, but depending on where I place it, the temperature varies almost an entire degree!

  9. Brandy says:

    I like that it is incredible quick with results.

  10. amanda roach says:

    that its the best selling thermometer

  11. Keya Millionie says:

    This is a LOT more sanitary

  12. I like that it scans and you don’t have to fight a child to hold it under arm, tongue etc.

  13. Apple says:

    I learned just how accurate it is…even though it doesn’t take long.

  14. Lauren says:

    I learned that it’s been #1 three years in a row.

  15. Best thing about this device is that you don’t have to wake your child up to take their temperature. 🙂

  16. tracy p. says:

    I learned that: As you gently stroke the thermometer across the forehead crossing over the temporal artery, the sensor in its probe performs two processes:
    First it scans like a video camera, capturing naturally emitted infrared heat from the arterial blood supply at about 1000 “frames” per second, locking in the highest temperature it senses and;
    Second, at the same time, a patented system measures the ambient temperature of the site where the temperature is being taken. The patented “arterial heat balance” (AHB) software then synthesizes the two separate readings to accurately determine and display body temperature.

  17. Melissa Hartley says:

    I learned that the Temporal Scanner Thermometer is designed to measure the temperature of the skin surface over the temporal artery, a major artery of the head.
    Thanks for the contest! 🙂

  18. amy marantino says:

    i learned that Exergen markets two models of the TemporalScanner thermometer: a
    professional version for doctors’ offices and hospitals, and a consumer

    This would be so great. My daughter is so wiggly and it’s hard to get her temp when she doesn’t feel well.

  20. Laura Miller says:

    This would have come in handy this week! BOTH of my girls have been sick since Friday.

  21. Stephanie Phelps says:

    I learned you can ask your pediatrician for your TAT-2000C Educational Pamphlet which includes a $5.00 (mail-in) rebate coupon good toward your purchase of a TAT-2000C ComfortSCANNER™ or TemporalScanner™ Temporal Artery Thermometer.

  22. Amy Pullifrone says:

    I like that they have teamed up with Nascar…very cool…this is the first I have heard of them.

  29. Jackie Preas says:

    I like that the site has so much information on how to use the scanner appropriately.

  30. amy williams says:

    Exergen TemporalScanners are now used by medical professionals approximately 700,000,000 times per year, and by consumers approximately 100,000,000 times per year.
    If medical offices and hospitials trust it to use it this much I would love to have it.

  151. Kathy Pease says:

    Multiple temperatures taken over the same area in rapid succession will ultimately cool the area causing differences.
    If sweating, the temperature on the neck behind the ear lobe becomes the overriding temperature, and since this area is not quite as stable as the temporal artery, it can easily cooled be by the thermometer in taking multiple readings. Remember, the probe of thermometer will be at room temperature, and is about 30 degrees Fahrenheit (17 degrees Celsius) cooler than body temperature.

  152. Laura Unger says:

    I like that it is fast, non-invasive, and accurate! This would be so much easier than trying to hold the thermometer under my little one’s arm for several minutes.

  156. Sarah Yurga says:

    I found the following to be very informative: The temporal artery is connected to the heart via the carotid artery, directly leading from the aorta, the main trunk of the arterial system. It offers constant blood flow. It is the only such artery positioned close enough to the skin surface to provide access needed to take an accurate measurement.

  157. Sheila K. says:

    I learned that Exergen is the creator of the first temporal artery thermometer!
