Testimonials by Experts

We measured the temperature with each of these two thermometers on children and compared the readings to 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 than the tympanic.Dr. Davis Greenes, M.D. Boston

It is much easier to use than the ear temp probes, no handling of the ear, which typically scares a child, is a great benefit. I have been very impressed with the accuracy of the unit. I would highly recommend it to any one.Dr. Barry W. McCraw, M.D

A study published in the Archives of Pediatric and Adolescent Medicine found that the temporal artery thermometer detected fevers more often than the popular tympanic thermomter, which is placed in the ear. The method may even prove to be better that taking a rectal tempertaure, which has been considered the most practical method of getting an accurate reading.Sharl Roan, LA Times Health Writer
