Hot, Hot Baby!! Thermometer giveaway!

When kid's get hot, and you don't know what their temperature is, it can be a challenge getting a correct reading. I am not a big fan of taking a temperature rectally, even though that is probably the most accurate reading. I was excited to review the Temporal Scanner Thermometer from Exergen. This thermometer is so slick, and takes an accurate reading by scanning the temporal artery. Using just 2 batteries, you take off the lid, place the tip on the child's forehead, and click the power button. Then, you slowly move the thermometer across the forehead to the top of the ear/hairline. The forehead has the temporal artery, and it contains your body's heat. Here are some stats about the thermometer from the Exergen site:
First it scans like a video camera, capturing naturally emitted infrared heat from the arterial blood supply at about 1000 “frames” per second, locking in the highest temperature it senses and;
Second, at the same time, a patented system measures the ambient temperature of the site where the temperature is being taken. The patented "arterial heat balance" (AHB) software then synthesizes the two separate readings to accurately determine and display body temperature.
It is important to read the directions carefully so you can get the best, and most accurate reading. One key step is removing the plastic covering. I made that error one time while trying this product out. My daughter thought it was her phone when I took it out of the packaging. That was pretty funny.
Exergen Temporal Scanner is so easy to use, and you can take your child's temperature while you snuggle them~ which is what they want most when they are not feeling well. Guess what? You can enter to win one for your family! Go to the Exergen site, and leave a comment about something you found out about using this thermometer. Contest open to those in the USA. Giveaway ends April 15th, 2009.
You can purchase this at Walmart, Sam's Club, and several other places. Thank you to Exergen Temporal Scanner and Family Review Network for this great review and giveaway opportunity!

I learned that the skin must be clear of hair, hats, etc to get an accurate reading. It looks wonderful!

It is more consistent than ear thermometers because when using ear thermometers, the positioning of the probe in the ear canal is inconsistent.

thanks!

I found out that-
Arterial temperature is the same temperature as the blood flowing from the heart. It is the best determinate of body temperature.

Forgot to put that first, but here it is.

The thermometer is very non invasive and you can take your childs temperature when they are sleeping with very acurate readings.

If child is laying down don't use the side that they had been laying on, it will be warmer.

The Exergen Temporal Scanner Thermometer is the answer to my prayers. My mother could never figure out my temperature on the thermometer when I was younger. Then when I took my own temp, I realized that it was very hard to read. I bought an electronic one, but that proved to be inaccurate. I really like the sound of this thermometer because not only does it take the temperature from the forehead, it takes 1000 readings a second and then selects the right one.

Reads 1000 frames per second of the temporal artery, is the most accurate, and it's used by hospitals! LOVE that!

The temporal scanner can measure changes in temp faster than temperatures taken rectally. Thanks for the chance.
