Most recently I had the opportunity in reviewing the Exergen Smart Glow TemporalScanner Temporal Artery Thermometer.
The accuracy of the TemporalScanner for all ages is supported by more than 40 peer-reviewed published studies, and more than one billion temperatures taken annually in hospitals and clinics.
This thermometer is safe and easy to use. Just a gentle stroke of the forehead captures naturally emitted heat from the skin over the temporal artery. With the New Smart Glow it features a Soft Glow display with soft lighting for easy reading in any light. Perfect for checking the temperature of a sleeping infant or an adult in a darkened room. It also features 8 temperature memories, which automatically retains the last 8 temperature readings for instant recall to check on fever progression. The TemporalScanner even has a programmable beeper, the thermometer makes a beeping sound indicating scanning can be turned off or on to avoid waking a sleeping or adult. The flashing LED light facing the forehead while scanning turns off when the beeper is turned off. You can even program it to measure the temperature in either Fahrenheit or Celsius. The TemporalScanner takes 1,000 readings per second, selecting the most accurate one with the Arterial Heart Balance it computes the correct temperature.
By now you must be asking why does the TemporalScanner measure heat emitter from the temporal artery in the head? Well, because the temporal artery is directly connected to the heart via carotid artery. This connection has the constant blood flow needed for accurate measurement. And it is the safest most convenient and comfortable place to measure temperature.
I personally think this is an outstanding product it is so much for convenient then a traditional thermometer. Recently my son came down with a cold and I had to keep checking his temperature through out the day and night making sure his temperature didn’t reach any horrific levels. The TemporalScanner was easier to use, instead of sticking a plastic rod into his mouth while he was sleeping potentially waking him up I could just stroke the TemporalScanner across his forehead quietly checking his temperature. And the option to turn off the beeping noise when the temperature is done being scanned is a great feature as well as turning off the light that shows the temperature.
Sold in major retailers including Wal-Mart, Target, Walgreens, Rite Aid, Costco, Babies “R” Us, Toys “R” Us, Kroger and BJ’s, the Smart Glow thermometer’s suggested retail price is $49.99.
