Must have item: Exergen Temporal Artery Thermometer



The Exergen Temporal Artery Thermometer is a first class product. Anyone who has tried to take a child’s temperature before will appreciate this device. Now there is no need to use any obtrusive oral or ear probing thermometer.

This simple to use body temperature thermometer gives an accurate reading in 5 seconds or so. Taking a reading is as simple as placing the scanner probe on the forehead and swiping it across until you reach the hairline. The device is highly accurate and its LCD screen showed only a 0.2 degrees spread when I took ten consecutive readings. The scanner works by sensing infrared heat in the temporal artery.


The unit is no bigger than a tube of toothpaste and is comfortable and easy to use. It is also made in the USA and is testament to the ingenuity we used to see in US products before most of our manufacturing facilities were transported abroad. A detailed, clear and informative manual is included which includes full user instructions. This thermometer is beautifully made and can be used for the whole family. It operates from one supplied 9V battery.

Sold at Wal-Mart, Walgreens, Costco, Babies R Us, Toys R Us and Sam’s Club. Price: $50
