Okay, sorry for the Nelly title reference….I just couldn’t help myself. Anyway, to be serious, I can’t tell you how often over the years I have struggled with thermometers. When Regan was young she had febrile seizures. Anytime she would start to feel warm, I would start trying to monitor her temp with an ear thermometer that we had. I honestly would get so many different and difficult readings that it left me frustrated. It got so bad, that as soon as she felt the slightest bit warm we would plunge her in a cool bath just to avoid any possible seizures. Due to her cerebral palsy, we couldn’t get her to function with a regular or rectal thermometer. What would really bother me was that when her pediatrician would ask what her temperature had gotten to, we were at a loss as to what to say.
Now I am blessed to have had an Exergen Temporal Scanner to work with and evaluate, and I absolutely love that device! First of all it is non-invasive. It gets a correct temperature reading with just a quick scan of the forehead. It was so easy, that everyone in my house could use it with no problems, and it was accurate. Who could ask for more in a thermometer.
The Exergen Temporal Scanner is the fastest, most accurate way to measure body temperature. Even if there is perspiration on the forehead, you can place the probe on the back of the neck to get a reading.
To use, simply place the probe on the forehead, hold down the scan button and slide over to the hairline. Within 2-3 seconds it will beep letting you know the scan is over. Release the scan button and take the thermometer away from the head when it reaches the hairline. It even has an automatic shut off after 30 seconds.
It is the only Thermometer made in the US and is better for the environment since it uses infrared sensor technology and contains no mercury. The Exergen Temporal Scanner runs on one 9-volt battery and meets all regulatory requirements.
You can purchase the Exergen Temporal Scanner in many places including BabiesRUs…..or you can win one from this giveaway…Yippee!
