Exergen TemporalScanner Thermometer Review and Giveaway

I received an Exergen Temporal Scanner to facilitate this review. Opinions stated are my own. 

One thing that always annoyed me in working in bedside care was attempting to get the temperature of a patient. An oral thermometer just seemed to take forever and was just incredibly annoying to a patient at that 4 am check. Recently, many facilities have begun to invest in Temporal Artery Scanning technology to improve the patient experience. Thank goodness it also improves nursing care experience, in my opinion.

Recently I received an Exergen TemporalScanner Thermometer to review and was pleasantly surprised with just how simple and efficient it is. It’s so easy to use that even my toddler had it mastered in a matter of seconds and was going around the house attempting to get the temperature of everyone in sight.

In my opinion temporal artery scanning is the most efficient and therefore the best way to take the temperature of your child. In my experiences both as a nurse and a patient, temporal artery scanning caused the least discomfort and inconvenience for both the healthcare provider and the patient as well as providing and accurate temperature.

Exergen is becoming very popular in part of this is because they cater to both consumers and medical facilities. In fact, the Exergen Temporal Thermometer was named of the smartest products of the decade!

“Exergen markets two models of the TemporalScanner thermometer: a professional

model for doctors’ offices and hospitals, and a consumer model sold in major retailers
including Wal-Mart, Target, Walgreen’s, Costco, Sam’s Club, Babies “R” Us, Toys “R” Us, and
BJ’s. More than 600 million temperatures are taken each year with the TemporalScanner.
Used in two-thirds of hospitals and half of pediatricians’ offices in the country as well as in
millions of homes, it is also the only thermometer manufactured in the United States.”

You can pick up your own Exergen Temporal Scanner on Amazon.com.

  1. I work in PACU and often struggle to get an oral or axillary temp on a sedated patient. I wish we could use these!
    It would be great for my two year old as well.

  2. Love temporal therm’s. I’ve had so many annoying experiences with axillary thermometers when I can’t get a quick reading without holding it for at least 3 minutes.

  3. LOVE temporal thermometers! my patients (the older ones especially) think it’s SO cool that it can take a temperature so easily and fast! I don’t know if I could ever go back to oral (or, heaven forbid, rectal). 🙂

  4. What a great gift idea for new mom’s as well! I wish I had this when my kids were little – those oral thermometers DO take forever!
