The Best Temporal Thermometer: Reviews

The Best Temporal Thermometer: Reviews

In the last 20 years doctors and nurses almost universally agreed that mercury-based thermometers were too risky to handle. The vigorous swinging needed to "reset" a mercury thermometer makes it very easy to accidentally break and then spill the poisonous mercury. Instead of stocking up on spill kits, hospitals and doctors now stock up on electronic digital thermometers, specifically temporal scan thermometers. Exergen's temporal scanner infrared thermometer, the Exergen TAT-5000 Temporal Thermometer is quickly becoming the standard in temporal scanners. The TAT-5000 is the best reviewed temporal thermometer. Temporal thermometer reviews are important to read. But what do the doctors say? What are the professional reviews of the Exergen Temporal Scanner? Here are a few, from Exergen's site.

"[The Exergen] thermometer is more accurate than the tympanic thermometer in infants, and it is better tolerated by infants than rectal thermometry."

"We measured the temperature with each of these two thermometers on children and compared the reading to the rectal temperature, which is generally considered the standard. Essentially we found that by every measure that we used, the temporal artery thermometer was more accurate."

Dr. David Greenes M.D.

Division of Emergency Medicine, Boston Children's Hospital, Harvard Medical School

"I have been very impressed with the accuracy of the unit. I would highly recommend it to anyone."
