Product Description:

The Exergen Smart Glow TemporalScanner™ thermometer accurately reads a temperature in two seconds and gauges body temperature by capturing the naturally emitted heat from skin over the temporal artery, which runs across the forehead and is directly connected to the heart via the carotid artery.

To use, simply slide the thermometer in a reasonably straight line across the forehead, midway between the eyebrows and the upper hairline.

The Exergen TemporalScanner™ Thermometer has four unique features to make taking your child’s temperature simple:

Soft-Glow Display

8 Temperature Memory

As with any thermometer, taking temperatures properly is critical to obtaining accurate temperatures, so please read all instructions carefully and thoroughlMy Review:y before using this product.

My Review:

Taking your temperature or the temperature of a sick loved one with a traditional thermometer can be tricky. I know I personally hate using my oral thermometer when my nose is stuffed and can’t breath out of it. One minute feels like forever when your nose is stuffed up. 

The Exergen TemporalScanner™ Thermometer is the answer! It is so quick and easy to use.  The directions say: Simply slide the thermometer in a reasonably straight line across the forehead, midway between the eyebrows and the upper hairline. It really is that simple!

I love that there is a light so you can see the reading in the dark. 

Here are some commonly asked questions:

Q: What does the TemporalScanner™ measure?
A: With a gentle stroke of the forehead it captures the naturally emitted heat from the skin over the temporal artery, taking 1,000 readings per second, selecting the most accurate. With its patented Arterial Heat Balance system, the TemporalScanner measures ambient temperatures, mathematically replaces the small temperature loss from cooling at the skin, and displays an accurate arterial temperature.
Q: What is arterial temperature?
A: Arterial temperature is the same temperature as the blood flowing from the heart. It is the best determinate of body temperature.
Q: Why is it more accurate than ear temperature?
A: A major reason ear thermometers are considered inaccurate by medical professionals is because the positioning of the probe in the ear canal is inconsistent, thus creating inconsistent readings and frequently missing fevers. The temporal artery thermometer scans the forehead area for the temporal artery and it is almost impossible to miss the artery during a scan. Furthermore, the TemporalScanner™ has been proven more accurate than ear thermometers by a Harvard Medical School study.
Q: Normally, how does arterial temperature compare to other methods of temperature?
A: Arterial temperature is the same temperature as the blood flowing from the heart. It is the best determinate of body temperature.
Q: Why am I getting inconsistent results?
A: The user should normally be getting stable results, or results within a few tenths of a degree of each other. However, a few things to know:

  • 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 be cooled 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.
Q: I heard the thermometer is sensitive to ambient temperature, is it?
A: Yes, it is sensitive to ambient temperature, which is part of the reason it is so accurate.
Q: Where can I purchase a TemporalScanner?
A: They are available at Wal-Mart, Babies R’ Us, Walgreens, Toy’s R’ Us, and Costco.
