My almost two year old Jax has been sick basically this entire year. I can’t even begin to imagine what we’ve spend in co-pays to Doctors, ER’s and Urgent Care in addition to all the prescriptions he’s had to take. Health care can be costly but it’s also obviously a necessity and we’re lucky we have good insurance.
While they are trying to figure out what’s going on with him I’ve been asked to track his daily health. This involves things like his temperament, appetite, any symptoms he’s experiencing, pulse ox and temperature.
Now that cold and flu season is upon us it’s even more important for me to keep a close eye on him! Since he has been so sick, he knows the drill! He tries to take his own temperature and it probably won’t be long before he can!
Since this thermometer has the ability to store readings, I can track his temperature throughout the day when he is sick. The Doctor always wants to know the full range and this way I don’t have to remember because it does it for me!
I really like the thermometers that take their temperature on their forehead because of how simple they are to use and how quickly they respond. However, not all are created equal! Some just take the skin temperature which isn’t an actual reflection of their temperature. Only the Temporal Artery Thermometer gives you an accurate reading.
Here is how it works:
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.
Since toddlers are notorious for having zero patience, the reading in two seconds is extremely important to me! It’s about how long I have his attention! Since you can put the thermometer into silent mode, you can even take their temperature while sleeping. I do this all the time when Jax is sick.
The thermometer fits comfortably in the palm of my hand and is easy to turn over, pushing down the button and getting a reading in a matter of seconds.
It’s hard having a child that is sick all the time but at least the temporal artery thermometer makes me feel like I’m doing my part tracking his health at home. It gives me a small bit of peace of mind while we figure out what’s going on with him.
The Exergen TemporalScanner™ Thermometer is a 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 thermometer is easy to use, with just a few simple steps: Simply depress and hold its large, soft button and lightly scan across the forehead. A red LED light and soft beep indicate a correct scan.
Nearly two billion temperatures are taken each year with the TemporalScanner™. It is used in thousands of hospitals, clinics and pediatricians’ offices across the country, as well as in millions of homes. In addition to being the #1 preference of pediatricians in the United States, it is the #1 preference of nurses, and the #1 selling retail thermometer.
The TemporalScanner™ Thermometer is tested six times for accuracy during manufacture at Exergen’s plant in Watertown, Massachusetts and comes with a one-year warranty. It runs on one 9-volt battery (included), and meets and exceeds all regulatory requirements, including FDA, ASTM, EC, and UL.
Created by Harvard-research scientist Dr. Francesco Pompei, the TemporalScanner™ has become one of the most efficient, non-invasive thermometer ever created. The Exergen TemporalScanner’s performance is supported by more than 50 peer-reviewed published studies covering all ages from preterm infants to geriatrics and all care areas from hospitals to homes.
