The Exergen Temporal Scanner

This giveaway is now closed....
Congrats Rebecca!
rebecca said...
Wow. Right now we use a 30-60 second under arm thermometer. I hate having to take baby's clothes off enough to get a reading and then holding his little arm down. I'd love to have this!


Squirming, Screaming, hands covering their ears....
These are all things associated with taking one's temperature in my household.
I don't know why but my kids have never been the type to sit still while I take their temperature.
We have tried the digital thermometers.....
They act as if I am trying to choke them.
We have tried the digital ear thermometers....
They act as if I am trying to RING their ears or something.
They squirm around so much that is almost impossible to get an accurate reading.
THAT WAS THEN....
THIS IS NOW...

The Exergen Temporal Scanner thermometer


A little about Exergen Temporal Scanner:
The Exergen TemporalScanner™is the world’s first infrared thermometer designed to measure body temperature by taking a reading from the temporal artery. The patented technology employs an infrared sensor that accurately registers body temperature to within +0.2ยบ F—a much more accurate means of taking the temperature than any other way including oral, rectal, axillary (under the arm) and tympanic (in the ear). It is also the least invasive method, depending upon a gentle sweep over a patient’s forehead.

AHA!
Did you get the part about gently sweeping it over your patient's forehead??
That's all it takes is a gentle sweep. You can take their temp when they are SLEEPING!
I love it already.
Also,
The gentle scan across the forehead, reading the temporal artery, is more accurate and comfortable for the user.
No more "guessing" if you have the correct temperature (peace of mind).
When we first received the Exergen Temporal, I began practicing my mad temp taking skills.
I swept it across everyone's forehead (I even scanned the hubby's forehead!)
I am going to say that the readings were all accurate . . .98.4 and 98.6.
Photobucket
Fast Forward three days later and I got to REALLY put this baby to the test.
I had my first sick kiddo :Sigh:
Temperature was 99.3 ((DING DING)) we have a sick kiddo indeed!
*No, I am not excited about the sick kiddo part but more like excited because I got to fully TEST my new Exergen Temporal Scanner.
Guess what, folks?
The fun didn't stop there.
Two more sick kiddos the next day and this momma was in the temp taking business.
I didn't have any screaming or squirming either.
The kids thought the Exergen Temporal Scanner was rather cool.
(I think they liked the beeping sounds.)
Later they became even more curious because they were walking around taking temps of pretty much everything INCLUDING THE CAT! (Poor kitty)

From now on, we will only be using the Exergen Temporal Scanner.

Well, I currently take my children's temperature using the back of my hand or my lips, but I could really use a more accurate method such as the Exergen Temporal Scanner. Kudos to the non-invasive design!!

Shasta on April 6, 2009 at 1:10 PM said...

Right now, I use the "old fashioned" kind that you have to wait like 3 minutes until it beeps. My boys HATE it! It takes way too long. This would be wonderful for us, so much faster and easier! I would love to have one of these!

tutugirl on April 6, 2009 at 1:12 PM said...

I have an ear thermometer right now and when my kids are sick, they have having me stick it in his ear. This new one would make it so much easier and quicker. No more wiggles.

MOMFOREVERANDEVER on April 6, 2009 at 1:43 PM said...

under the tongue- this would be so much cleaner accurate and safer

KPort207 on April 6, 2009 at 2:46 PM said...

Right now, we use one that goes under the tongue but it's never accurate. Thanks.

Jinxy on April 6, 2009 at 2:57 PM said...

Luckily my baby hasn't been sick yet, but if she were I would have to use the "old fashion" way.
I'd rather use the temporalscanner because its faster and my doctor recommended the old fashion way to get the plumbing going if that became a problem.

Traumajunky on April 6, 2009 at 3:09 PM said...

I take my daughter's temp orally with a digital thermometer. I'd love to have the Exergen as it would be fast and no more fussing or fidgeting.

rbailey1958 on April 6, 2009 at 4:43 PM said...

Currently, we take temps under the arm w/a digital thermometer.
I would like the giveaway thermometer because it would be accurate, fast and easy

Stephanie on April 6, 2009 at 5:47 PM said...

currently still use rectal temp taking and I am so done with it -- the squirm, the wait etc. Little boy just had a fever last week so hoping this fantastic product lives in my medicine cabinet the next time the fever decides to invade.

We use a mercury thermometer now. It would be so much easeier to use this new Temporal Scanner - less fussing, and no problems when the temperature takee is coughing their head off!

Thanks for the giveaway!

Karen on April 6, 2009 at 6:46 PM said...

I use a regular old thermometer under the kids' tongues. And then sometimes I put it under their arms if they are coughing. I never feel confident reading it. I would love to win this!

I don't have the thermometer, so the back of my hand has to work!

I use an ear thermometer right now. It's not all that accurate. And no matter what I do my daughter screams even mentioning having to take a temp. This sounds much easier!

We use the old fashioned type of thermometer. It is lousy.

One Frugal Girl on April 6, 2009 at 11:11 PM said...

I don't have kids but at the daycare center where I worked we used the under the arm method. The exergen would be so much better since it's so simple to use and seems nearly full proof.

This is so sad but I have to pin my two year old down because he just doesn't understand the concept. We use a digital thermometer and it's not the easiest to use on him...Its a battle of wills and he usually wins!

we use a standard oral thermometer

Dove420 on April 7, 2009 at 4:40 AM said...

I have both an ear thermometer and a digital mouth thermometer...I would much rather have the temperal, It is faster, noninvasive and more accurate. I have a houseful (3 adults, 2 children) who tend to get sick one after the other.

dove42(at)comcast(dot)net

clc408 on April 7, 2009 at 4:52 AM said...

I've used a digital oral thermometer, but this one is non-invasive and would not stress a sick child. I also like the accuracy. Thanks for the giveaway.

pamcallahan on April 7, 2009 at 4:56 AM said...

Right now, I use an older digital thermometer. I don't think it is very accurate though. This one looks so easy and I love the fact that it is non-evasive!

pamela.callahan@sbcglobal.net

Stephen on April 7, 2009 at 5:29 AM said...

I don't have a kid, if I did I'd use something like this preferably.

We use a digital ear thermometer. My 7 year old doesn't mind it, but my baby can't stand it!

hminnesota on April 7, 2009 at 7:26 AM said...

I am using digital thermometer but for accuracy I generally use my own judegement:(. This product will take away my two cents which is quite required!!. My elder one who is 6 gets crazily mad seeing that digital thermometer. I am pretty sure Exergen will make life easier.thanks

We now use a cheap unreliable digital under the tongue thermometer! I need to win this!

clynsg on April 7, 2009 at 8:17 AM said...

My children and grandchildren are all grown, but my granddaughter has a 2 month old, and she is currently using a digital thermometer for axillary temps. Would love to be able to give her this.

sphinx63 on April 7, 2009 at 8:46 AM said...

I have an oral thermometer now, and the reason I want this Exergen termometer is because when my daughter is sick, she hates using the oral one. Thanks!

but this one seems more accurate..
hope to win for my little one

I just have a regular thermometer and would love to have the new non-invasive thermometer to use on the grandchildren when they are here visiting and become sick.

I use the digital under the arm method which is paramount to torture, I like the non invasiveness of temporal reading

Starryphate on April 7, 2009 at 11:13 AM said...

I use an underarm thermometer but as a first time mom to a 5 month old I would love an easier way to do it and this sounds like it.

susan on April 7, 2009 at 12:53 PM said...

We have tons of thermometers (ear and digital). However none of them are as fast, accurate, or non-invasive as the Exergen Temporal Scanner. This would be a blessing to have.

jayne on April 7, 2009 at 12:58 PM said...

I use the under the tongue method! I like the scanner method better!

Grandma said...

My husband has a loss of hearing in the high frequency range and can't hear the beeping of the regular digital thermometer so he can't tell when is is working or when it is done. This would be great for him.

I use a cheapy digital thermometer that was sent home with us from the hospital when my youngest was born. It's not very accurate and hard to use on a wiggly toddler. Thanks for the chance to win!

Danetta on April 7, 2009 at 2:09 PM said...

I currently use a digital oral thermometer. I would really love to win the TemporalScanner because it would be so much quicker and easier (on both me and my son). When my son is sick with a cough or stuffy nose he has a hard time keeping the oral thermometer in his mouth and gets frustrated.

Deborah Osterman said...

I don't have a thermometer. I really could use one and this one looks great.

Katie on April 7, 2009 at 2:41 PM said...

I take their temperatures in their armpits. Ears are inaccurate (at least my thermometer is), too little for oral, and I am just NOT taking it rectally! This Temporal Scanner would make my life SO much easier, especially with my son's frequent ear infections. Faster, more accurate, quiet... sign me up.

I take my son's temp rectally. It's no picnic!

Heidi Gail on April 7, 2009 at 3:22 PM said...

My kids are grown and I want this for one of them and their kids. I used to take their temperatures rectally when they were really small, later with a digital thermometer under the arm.

ecky on April 7, 2009 at 3:35 PM said...

we use the armpit method. our daughter hates it and yells "ow" the whole time. also it isnt very accurate. the temporal scanner sounds much less invasive and much more accurate. my daughter would be much happier!!

elkesten at yahoo dot com

kdkdkd on April 7, 2009 at 3:55 PM said...

I currently use an ear scant thermometer on my boys that is less than accurate. You get a ball park reading, but take it 5 times in a matter of minutes and all the readings will vary. This would be so much easier to use and so much more accurate

michelena2000 on April 7, 2009 at 4:00 PM said...

I use the digital kind that beeps.

vboackle on April 7, 2009 at 4:59 PM said...

i would rather use this because it is quick and noninvasive.

The Jacobsen Family! on April 7, 2009 at 6:12 PM said...

Currently we use the ear thermometer. It would be so much quicker to use the Exergen (and more accurate!), plus no worries about taking temp with a kid whose ear is aching!

Ebie on April 7, 2009 at 7:16 PM said...

uhhh, i pretty much just touch his forehead b/c he won't let me take his temp actually. i just guess at whether he's too warm or not.

Heather on April 7, 2009 at 7:54 PM said...

we have an oral thermometer and UGH we hate it,, my son has a horrid gag reflex and holding that under his tongue always leads toa big mess and him feeling worse~!

this would be a great tool to have around the house...thanks...it's so accurate!

Kristi on April 7, 2009 at 9:22 PM said...

I guarantee you that I need this more than anyone else. My poor 6 and a half year old has to still be subjected to rectal just because he runs such high fevers regularly (103.5 average) that I always need accuracy when I take it. This would save him dignity and me embarrassment and shame.

Jenndiggy on April 7, 2009 at 10:44 PM said...

An oral thermometer.

Annette on April 8, 2009 at 12:35 AM said...

I currently use a thermometer under the arm on my 2 year old...and in the mouth for my 7 and 12 year old.

jennem on April 8, 2009 at 9:55 AM said...

My daughter gets super high temperatures--usually between 104 and 105--and usually in the middle of the night. They have to be carefully monitored. This would make it so much easier and less intrusive, right now we use an oral digital.

samsakara on April 8, 2009 at 11:09 AM said...

I currently use my hand to check to see if my kid has a fever. I would love to have this since it's not invasive and because I need a thermometer.

The Dreamer on April 8, 2009 at 12:20 PM said...

My Daughter is 18 now, so I don't have to take her temp. FOR her any more. But when I did, it was under the tongue for the most part and what a pain in the buttinsky it was!!! She could not keep her trap shut.. talking, PLUS she had asthma, coughing! OY VEY! What a nightmare! The Exergen Temporal Scanner STILL will be wonderful for OUR Family! A swipe across her forhead and Bam, done! She tends to still run a fever once in a while so this would be a blessing!

I use the three minutes under the tongue for my older girls and the not so accurate under the armpit for the two younger ones. Both ways take too long for the sick and uncomfortable so I usually use my lips to the forehead. I´d much rather have one of these. Thanks for the chance to win one.

Thank you

I haven't taken my kids' temps since they were babies. Then I used a digital reading thermometer under the armpit. Now, I put my hand on their foreheads. If they're hot, they have to rest.

trishden on April 11, 2009 at 9:12 PM said...

Right now I only take my child's temp by feeling and kissing his forehead. If it feels warm I will give him something like an ibruprophen or an acitamenphen to bring it down. I know not the best thing to do. Thanks for a great giveaway!

Gabriel J. on April 11, 2009 at 11:42 PM said...

I like that it is non-invasive unlike the one I currently use with my kids.

doozercries on April 12, 2009 at 12:29 AM said...

right now i take the temp by useing a basic digtial thermomter that i put on the tongue. Why i love to have this is because it takes less than 5 seconds to scan and get a accurate reading. very fast and accurate. ty.

Theresa C on April 12, 2009 at 12:57 AM said...

this is a wonderful item, ever take a temp with a cold thermometer under the fevered arm of a child or an ear thermometer in the ear of a sick child? this is painless and quick. Great giveaway

Kyndra on April 12, 2009 at 1:01 AM said...

Right now we try all methods to take the temp. Surprisingly, the little one will sit still (probably out of fear) for the back end method longer than for the paci or under arm thermometer. I would much rather use the Exergen Temporal Scanner so we don't have to wake the little one up. Sick kids need sleep!

I would like to win this because right now we use a digital thermometer under our baby's arm and she hates it and cries. The reason this would be so much better is because it would be quick, accurate and easy to use, and she wouldn't get stressed out any more.

I would like to win the Exergen Temporal Scanner because I like the idea of just swiping it across the forehead for a reading. We just have a basic digital thermometer that nobody like to put in their mouth and hold under their tongue. Thanks for the giveaway!

We use a traditional sublingual thermometer.

We have one of those bottom heavy electronic thermometers that you have to hold onto or the fall out of the little ones mouths.

I use a drugstore digital thermometer right now and I need this so I can have an accurate measure of my families temperature.

I would love to win this! I usually pass the job of temperature taking to my poor husband because I hate using the rectal thermometer on our baby! The Exergen Temporal thermometer would alleviate that stress and help me feel more confident when the baby is sick!

We currently use an ear thermometer and don't feel that it's very accurate. We would love to try this one!

shelley on April 12, 2009 at 7:37 PM said...

I would love to have the Exergen it would be so much easier for me since I'm in my fiftys and my grandaughter squigglies all over trying to get her temp.

Brea's Mommy on April 12, 2009 at 8:09 PM said...

We currently do rectal temps. I would love to win this so I no longer have to "torture" my daughter to get an accurate temp reading. I am sure she will love you forever if we win! Thanks for the opportunity!

We use a digital thermometer under the arm. This would be much quicker and more accurate. thanks!

I don't have a child, actually...but I take other loved ones' temps by placing my hand or lips on their foreheads.
Thanks for the chance, and God bless yoU!

Nikiblnc on April 12, 2009 at 10:09 PM said...

I love anything that helps avoid the rectal temp experience plus I love that's it's so simple to use and at the same time very accurate. Thanks for the giveaway!

Pam on April 12, 2009 at 11:40 PM said...

Currently we have a digital thermometer but it was a cheap one it seems to take forever before it says it's done. This would be a great improvement.

I have both a digital thermometer and an ear thermometer and get different readings all of the time! Not very accurate. I'd love to have a temporal scanner!

I use a digital thermometer. On my older kids I take it under their tongue. On my son, I take it under his arm. I would much rather use the Exergen Temporal Scanner. It would be quicker and easier. It's a struggle (ie. wrestling match) to take my son's and I'm always afraid that it's not very accurate.

Jammie on April 13, 2009 at 12:26 AM said...

under the tongue. And it isnt that easy I would love something so I can get in an out and not make my daughter be any more uncomfortable

Mollie G. on April 13, 2009 at 12:52 AM said...

"Poorly" says it best. My younger son is autistic, and tends to get very defensive about anything out of the ordinary. He actually bit down on a digital thermometer hard enough to crack it. This device, needing just a fast swipe across the forehead, sounds like a good solution!

Molly C. on April 13, 2009 at 1:32 AM said...

I hate to say it, but we just feel their forheads & give some tylenol if they feel hot. :( Can you tell we really need this? lol

Teresa on April 13, 2009 at 2:18 AM said...

I currently use under the arm method. This seems way more accurate!

I don't have a thermometer now and would love to have one of these.

anny32 on April 13, 2009 at 8:37 AM said...

digital oral thermometer hes very good at letting it alone. ive never had a problem with him. would be nice to have a quicker method. thanx

Skybluefusion on April 13, 2009 at 8:56 AM said...

We use a digital thermometer under the arm which isn't very reliable and the kids squirm. It takes forever. This thermometer would be SOOO much easier!

mom2anutball on April 13, 2009 at 9:00 AM said...

Right now I use the under the arm method, it dont work out too well! I would love to have this so I know Im getting an acurate temp everytime. Thanks for the chance!

rfrakes331k on April 13, 2009 at 9:00 AM said...

This is easy and non invasive! Thank you for the Opportunity!

Mir on April 13, 2009 at 9:07 AM said...

We use a digital thermometer. I'd rather be using the Exergen Temporal Scanner cause taking the temp of a infant is not easy with the digital one! Love the fact that it's non-invasive.

angie on April 13, 2009 at 9:49 AM said...

I have an oral thermometer. It's too hard to get an accurate reading. It's too uncomfortable to use. This one would be soooo much easier and better to use.

Kristy Clayman on April 13, 2009 at 10:40 AM said...

Just use a regular thermometer!

What a wonderful contest - thanks for posting! This looks like a great thermometer.

We have an oral thermometer but I don't really trust its accuracy! thanks, justicecw@hotmail.com

under the arm...it is so hard to get them to keep it there

taxchyk on April 13, 2009 at 12:13 PM said...

Hand to forehead, but obviously not accurate. Can only judge when to get to a doctor now! Regular thermometers cause much fussing, this would be a great relief.

Ardy22 on April 13, 2009 at 2:32 PM said...

We currently use the old fashioned mercury thermometer. This new exergen scanner would be great because of its simplicity and non invasive!

lezanac on April 13, 2009 at 2:32 PM said...

I take my kids temps orally I would love this because I won't have to fight my kids to get an accurate reading

jena2727 on April 13, 2009 at 2:36 PM said...

Currently, I take take the temperature of my 7 and 5 year old orally. For my 15 mth old I use the armpit. I would love to not have to hold my child down to get a reading. Also waiting for a regular thermometer to get a reading seems like an eternity!

Under the arm one...
This looks like a neat and helpful device, easy to use, accurate and non-invasive, what's not to love?

nanatt on April 13, 2009 at 2:42 PM said...

We still use a digital and this would be great to give our daughter who is haveing her 3rd child Thursday. With a toddler and a new baby it will be great to have one of these non invasive thermometers for her to use.
Thanks for the offer.

I currently use an ear thermometer. The Exergen Temporal Scanner seems more accurate.

ellie on April 13, 2009 at 4:11 PM said...

I have a digital thermometer but it's still the old fashioned kind. My four year old I use it under his arm and for my 14 month old we do it the real old fashioned way. This thermometer would make it so much easier. I could even use it while their asleep.

Helen on April 13, 2009 at 5:23 PM said...

I usually use an old fashioned thermometer or the back of my hand.

zenbob55 on April 13, 2009 at 5:46 PM said...

my mom used the inside of her wrist, and could tell what our temp was, i cant even get it right with a thermometer. the temporal scanner is what i need!

kylie8cake on April 13, 2009 at 6:14 PM said...

I use a cheap digital thermometer and my daughter hates doing it under her tongue. We would love to try this! thanks :)

RONA111 on April 13, 2009 at 6:37 PM said...

Right now, we use the regular mercury thermometer under the tongue method. How great it would be to glide this over the forehead. Quick easy and convenient! Thanks!

wendi on April 13, 2009 at 6:43 PM said...

I have a 13 mo old baby girl that gets a lot of ear infections and with that comes the fever. Taking her temp is nearly impossible. I take a underarm reading and she skirms and screams like she is in terrible pain. The themometer rarely takes a reading from all the moving. So on to the rectal themometer it is the same thing with this method. They even have trouble at the doctors office. My little girl is determined to not get her temp read. This would be great for us. I can't afford to buy one so maybe I can win it.
Thank you so much for the opportunity!!

Kaycee @ fitforachild.net on April 13, 2009 at 6:50 PM said...

We have a cheap dinky digital one! I would love this because its more accurate, faster and you dont have to interrupt sleeping babies!

micaela6955/Michele P. on April 13, 2009 at 6:50 PM said...

I have one of the digital thermometers you put in your ears to take the temperature. The only thing is I got it years ago and now I can't find the replacement sleeves anywhere so I can't use it! I would love this thermometer because it makes temperature taking easy and quick!

Gianna on April 13, 2009 at 7:08 PM said...

I'm currently using the ear thermometer. I'd love to use the temporal scanner because it seems easier. Love that it's non-invasive.

Donna M. Clark on April 13, 2009 at 7:42 PM said...

Right now we use one of the oral temp readers. It is not a fun time when the babies are sick. I would much prefer to use this one because it will not be invasive, and my children will be happier. Therefore, i will be happier.

jnmacdonald on April 13, 2009 at 7:48 PM said...

We currently use a thermometer that we place under her arm, but she's pretty squirmy so something I simply run across her forehead would be much simpler.

ZESTYWONDERLAND on April 13, 2009 at 8:31 PM said...

I stilluse the old fashion glass thermonetor !
I worry about spreading grems so I soak it in alcohol.
Then no maater how much I rinse it the kids say it taste yuck.
Would love to try the Temporal Scanner.
I got 4 kids here, 3 cats & two dogs............
so funny about them taking the cats temp...just love that!
Thanks for making me smile thur my pain(I fell yesterday & twisted my knee & got a hairline fracture).

I use a regular thermometer, and since my kid is a regular talk-show host both when I'm taking a temperature and on the phone, it takes ten years to accomplish.
With the scanner, I'll be finished in record time, and she can get back to talking in seconds flat - - or talk right through it! How exciting!

LuckyTJG on April 13, 2009 at 8:41 PM said...

I use a digital thermometer now but I would love this one because it's more accurate and less invasive. Thanks for the giveaway!

lilyk on April 13, 2009 at 8:59 PM said...

I currently take temperatures with a regular glass thermometer. I would much rather use the Exergen Temporal Scanner because it sounds very easy to use and gentle.

Donna on April 13, 2009 at 9:02 PM said...

We have an oral thermometer.

masonsgranny59 on April 13, 2009 at 9:32 PM said...

This would be so handy 2 own to use on the grandkids and whoever else is sick in the household :) ty 4 the entry:)
