The Exergen Smart Glow Temporal Thermometer
All it takes is for one of us to get sick and all of us get sick. No matter how much I disinfect we always get sick. One of the many things I do not like about my boys being sick is having to take their temperature.
Being a mom of three I have tried my fair share of thermometers. I have tried rectal, forehead strip, oral thermometers, etc. Yet I have always struggled to get accurate readings. Mainly because like most kids my boys do not like having their temperature taken. They can never stay still enough, keep their mouths closed long enough, or manage to keep the thermometer under their tongues.
Lately at the pediatrician’s office they have been taking temperatures with a temporal scanner. So I started looking into them and found one that I just had to try.
It is the Exergen Smart Glow Temporal Thermometer.
I tried it out immediately once I received it. I have to say that this is the easiest way to take your temperature, or that of a loved one. This thermometer uses the Temporal Artery on your forehead to get a highly accurate temperature. In case you didn’t know the Temporal Artery is located on the forehead and it has a direct connection to the heart via the carotid artery. This artery has a constant blood flow which is needed for an accurate temperature measurement. Because of the location of the artery, it makes this the most convenient and comfortable place to take a temperature.
I really liked that this thermometer is ready to use right from the package. It uses a 9 volt battery, which is included in the package. Another thing I liked is how well the Exergen Smart Glow Temporal Thermometer feels in my hand. It’s not bulky or awkward to hold and use. The battery installation was simple and easy as well as the quick version of instructions included. The thermometer has an 8 temperature memory ability which means that it will automatically retain the last 8 temperature readings taken. Another feature is the soft glow display which gives a soft light so that you can read the temps even in a dimly lit or dark room.
I would absolutely recommend the Exergen Smart Glow Temporal Thermometer to anyone who has any temperature taking needs, including those moving on their own for the first time. I also believe that this will make a great gift this holiday season!
