I recently received an Exergen Smart Glow Thermometer to try out to review for my readers. This has come in handy both in my personal and professional life. As an occupational therapist, I have to take vitals on my patients at every visit, and using the Exergen Smart Glow Thermometer helps save time and provides a much more accurate reading for me than the oral thermometer that I had been using up until now. It also helps when dealing with a kiddo with a fever. No longer do I have to wait and wait for an oral thermometer to reach its reading, I simply rub the scanner across her forehead and have a reading in seconds. This is great for those times in the middle of the night when you have a baby with a fever.
About the Exergen Smart Glow Thermometer:
- A softly illuminated display for easy reading in any light – perfect for checking the temperature of a sleeping infant in a darkened room
- Beeping sound indicating scanning can be turned off or on to avoid waking a sleeping child
- Automatically retains the last eight temperature readings for instant recall to check on fever progression
- Ability to switch between Fahrenheit and Celsius modes
The Exergen Smart Glow Thermometer is a perfect tool for health care workers and parents alike. Women who are charting their temperatures while trying to conceive will also find this convenient first thing in the morning. It’s the number one preferred thermometer by clinicians, and its effectiveness and accuracy is backed by over 50 studies. The Exergen Smart Glow TemporalScanner thermometer accurately reads a temperature in two seconds and gauges body temperature by capturing the naturally emitted heat from skin over the temporal artery, which runs across the forehead and is directly connected to the heart via the carotid artery.
It’s important to read the FAQ to learn how to properly use the Exergen Smart Glow Thermometer. You will not get an accurate reading if you scan over hair, or against the side of the head that may have been resting on a pillow. The best way to use is to slide the thermometer across the forehead in a straight line below the hairline and above the eyebrows.
The thermometer can be purchased at Walmart, Toys R Us, Babies R Us/babiesrus.com, Walgreens/Walgreens.com and Costco.com for approximately $49.99.
