When it comes to your new baby, you don’t want to take any chances...but you'd also rather not wake them up when they are sleeping. Exergen is perfect for newborns because it is not only the most accurate thermometer available, it's also gentle. Unlike rectal, ear and oral thermometers, your baby barely feels it. You can keep track of their health while they sleep soundly.
For Family Cold or Flu
You know what it's like when flu hits, and you want to avoid it at all costs. Plus you know in rare cases flu can be fatal. But how do you tell if it's a cold or the flu?
The way to tell the difference between a cold and the flu is fever. Flu always brings fever. That’s why you want the most accurate thermometer available. With Exergen, you know for certain when it’s time to call the doctor.
For Home Care
Exergen is used in thousands of hospitals and clinic around the world. Care providers prefer the Exergen TemporalScanner because it is simple, quick and easy with no risk of injury or discomfort. When you are home, Exergen is the best way to keep track of your vitals and stay on top of your health.
For Public Screening
Be safe and accurate while screening individuals in public settings such as schools, retail stores, or offices. SafetyScan Caps can be used once and discarded, or reused on the same patient. Caps may also be cleaned and disinfected with 70% isopropyl alcohol and re-used. SafetyScan Caps should not be re-used if they are chipped or cracked.
How to Use Temporal Thermometers
Here’s a trick for getting the best results with your scanner at home: Just remember "Touch". Anytime you are touching your child’s skin with the scanner, you should be touching your scanner’s button. Here's how it works.
Remove the protective cap and place the thermometer head flat against your child’s forehead.
Once the thermometer is touching the skin, press the button and keep it depressed as you glide your Exergen scanner across the forehead at the hairline. Do not to go down the side of the face or the technology can’t work.
While still holding the button down, use the scanner to touch the soft spot behind the ear. Then let go of the button and read the temperature.
Keep it clean
A dirty scanner can alter the accuracy of your readings, so it is important you clean it regularly. Use a Q-tip dipped in alcohol directly on the lens every 2-3 weeks. Do not use paper towels or tissues. Wait 5 minutes before using the scanner so it can recover from the coldness of the alcohol.
