EXERGEN TemporalScanner™ -- Product Review

What is the Exergen TemporalScanner Thermometer:

The Exergen TemporalScanner Thermometer is a totally non-invasive system with advanced infrared technology providing maximum ease of use with quick, consistently accurate measurements. Advanced, patented technology measures temperatures with a gentle stroke across the forehead.

The Exergen TemporalScanner Thermometer has been clinically tested for accuracy compared to rectal thermometers and temperature sensors inserted in the heart during course of patient treatment and accepted for use in major hospitals, making it the ideal thermometer for use with newborns, infants, children or adults. 

The Exergen TemporalScanner has patented software, providing arterial heat balance. This unique process determines temperature by accurately measuring the balance between the tissues warming from arterial blood and tissues cooling (warming) caused by heat loss (gain) to the environment.

Why take temperature measurements at the skin surface over the temporal artery?

The best place to measure temperature is the center of the heart, but this can be done only under a doctor's supervision. Doctors know that measurement of the blood temperature in a major artery accurately reflects true body temperature. The TemporalScanner Thermometer is designed to measure the temperature of the skin surface over the temporal artery, a major artery of the head.

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. It is easy to use because it is ideally located at the front portion of the forehead. The TemporalScanner is easier and gentler to use than other types of measurement devices such as oral, rectal, underarm and in-ear thermometers because it is truly non-invasive.

How does the TemporalScanner Thermometer work?

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.

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

My Thoughts:

The Exergen TemporalScanner Thermometer came in handy yesterday and today, as both my daughter and I are under the weather and I have been monitoring our temperatures.  She had her 15 months shots yesterday, including the flu shot, so I think this is what caused her not to feel well. But, nevertheless, it is important that I watch our temperatures, in case I have to call the doctors for a follow-up.  

I have tried other temporal thermometers in the past, as I received a few as baby shower gifts for Savannah last year, but noticed either they didn't produce an accurate reading, or didn't even offer up a reading.  So, at first I was skeptical about this thermometer.  Why would it be any different?  But, after trying it out, I was proved wrong.  It not only has provided accurate readings, but in seconds I can get a reading for both my daughter and I.  It is great to use when Savannah is napping, as I know in seconds, I can take a reading and not have to worry about waking her.  I was never one for the rectal reader, and I know Savannah is not a fan either, so when there is a thermometer out there that actual does what it is supposed to -- give fast and accurate readings -- it makes the life of a mom a lot easier.  And, being under the weather myself, it is great, as the last thing I want to do is spend half the day trying to get accurate temperature readings.

If you are in the market for a new thermometer for your infant or family, why not check out the Exergen TemporalScanner today.  Stop fiddling with those other temporal scanners and old-fashioned thermometers, and get this today.  It will make your life so much easier, and your children will thank you.
