Exergen Temporal Scanner Thermometer - Review & Giveaway

{This giveaway has ended. Congrats to #145 Amy Lynn} If you have young children, then you know how difficult it can be to take their temperature. In the 6 years that I've had children, I've used every kind of thermometer. We started out with a rectal/oral thermometer. The first time my son was sick, he was a very young baby, so you know what that means. I had to take his temperature rectally. It was unpleasant for all and the worst part was that the thermometer kept giving me different readings. It was severely inaccurate.

Then we went to an ear thermometer. And accuracy was an issue. Eventually, my kids got a little older and we were able to use an oral thermometer, that although the digital component wore out quickly, we were still able to see a smiley or sad face faintly in the corner. And that's where we sat until Exergen sent us their Temporal Scanner.

Where was this when I had babies!!!?!?!?!? Okay, I'm sure it existed but I didn't own one. I wish I had. It was so easy to use! None of us have been sick lately, so I took all our "healthy" temperatures and it seemed to be very accurate. No one complained about having it touch their forehead. In fact, the opposite happened. Everyone wanted to take their temperatures again and again.

It's also quick. The Exergen Temporal Scanner thermometer reads your temperature in just 2 seconds. It would be fantastic for babies and squirmy toddlers. I may have originally missed it because of the price. Prices range between $30-$50. Looking back at the hassle and the fact that I purchased 3 thermometers over the last 6 years, the price seems a lot more attractive.

You can't put a price on accuracy when you need it most. You can find it at Costco, Walmart, Walgreens, Sam's Club, Toys R' Us, and Babies R' Us. You can print a $5 Rebate here.

A few other things you should know: the Exergen temporal scanner is the only thermometer manufactured in the United States. It does not contain any mercury or require disposable covers or parts. Given our current economy and the environmental implications, that's important information.

To make sure you have the best experience with the Exergen temporal scanner, be sure you take off the transparent cap so your scanner can make skin contact.One lucky Suburban Jungle Reader will have the chance to own an Exergen Temporal Scanner of their own!

To Enter: Leave a comment sharing your experiences (or frustrations) with taking a child's temperature.

My kids always think its going to hurt. This will be sure a treat. I'm sure they will want to do it on them self:)

Hannah said...

I get so frustrated when taking temperatures as we have experienced that the ear thermometers are just not accurate so it says it high and we head to the doctors only to find it wasn't as high as we thought! Very frustrating! Would love to try this we have some friends we one and they swear by it!

J.E. said...

This is the coolest thing ever. In the past when my kiddos have been sick, they sleep alot. I never want to wake them to take their temp- so this would be perfect to do while they are sleeping even.

This is a great product. When my son is sick he doesn't want me sticking something in his ear, he is already irritable enough without going through all of that.

What a great product! So much safer than the ones you have to put in a child's mouth.

I use to be so nervous when I would have to take my son's temperature I'd have to ask my husband to do it. This would make things so much easier for us. Thanks for the chance.

Juice said...

With three boys, one who had chronic ear infections, I have gone through several types of thermometers. I even tried the pacifier one! Which was somehow even less successful than regular under-the-tongue thermometers. I've found it's not just the method (armpit, mouth, rectal, ear) but how FAST the thermometer can get a reading.

And yeah, the more times you end up buying a cheap thermometer, the more attractive the higher-end ones become! (Although, that's still kind of scary, since I've lost a few to the toy abyss and even the toilet - that was favorite one, too!)

Super Blogger Girl! said...

my son is sick right now, I do rectal temps every hour, he hates it and screams everytime, i think im tramatisizing him, If I dont win im using the rebate and buying this anyways!

Erin said...

While babysitting as a teen, I had a fussy toddler that felt hot to me, but his temperature read as normal. Turns out he really did have a temperature and ended up in the hospital. This looks like a great product.

The NEW Mommiez Blend said...

Oh man this looks awesome. I have been lucky that my little man is fine with me taking his temp in his hinder. I do always question the accuracy and I am not about to test it on myself LOL. When your babe has a temp of 103 or more you really hope it's reading right. Thanks for an awesome chance to win this!

The worst we've found is the fact that the temps we get with a normal thermometer vary up to 3 or 4 degrees in a minute. That just doesn't seem really accurate to me.

skgaff said...

Oddly enough it's easier for me to take my 2 year olds temp rectally than under her arm. She is afraid of it for some reason. And I hate doing it rectally, so this would be a great thing to have.

Um, which frustration do you want? baby girl peeing and making her temperature higher? Or the time she pushed so hard to get it out she pooped everywhere?
I finally bought my own, but the kids have broken it, so you have great timing!

Moni said...

I have been wanting one of these. It is so hard to take my little ones temperature. I try to do it under her arm but I don't know how reliable that is and she squirms around to much.

KPort207 said...

It's so hard taking my daughters temperature. She doesn't hold still etc plus, it seems to take forever to get a reading. When a child doesn't feel well, it's the last thing i want to do but its necessary, thanks.

Have tried almost everything, rectal thermometers which worked for babies but wouldn't for my older kids 4 and 6- tried the ones in the mouth under the tongue besides it just being a little awkward for a child to keep there it takes too long- and the ones in the ears seem to be just a little too big for tiny kids. Would LOVE this one- saw them use it at the doctor on my daughter yesterday actually and she LOVED it- wanted to do it over and over again (2 year old)

Hi there!
This is awsome. I was a caregiver for my Mom for 5 years. (She passed away last year) We had a very hard time taking her temp - this would have been fabulous. Now it is grandbaby time OH MY! Thanks for the heads up (pun intended) and opportunity.
Cheers

With a regular thermometer, I had to wake my child up to take his temp. With this thermometer, you can take your child's temp while they are asleep.

OMG! When my baby was fussy and feverish, taking a rectal temp was just such a job. This would be a godsend.

Jayne said...

I haven't been blessed yet with a little one, so my baby temperature experience is limited. However, my sister is pregnant, and this is on her baby registry. I know she would appreciate it!

We currently use an oral digital thermometer. My son just can't seem to keep it under his tounge long enough to get an accurate reading and we end up having to do it several times which is very frustrating.

Veronica said...

Oh my, I would love to have one of these. The hardest part of taking temps on my little ones is trying to make them sit still long enough to be able to take an accurate temp (I have three boys under the age of 5 in my house!) Thanks for a great giveaway :)

Jessica-MomForHim said...

If I win this (and I hope I do), I will give it to another mom since we have one. I like it--however I have a few caveats I wanted to mention:
*you still need to take a small infant's temp rectally since it is most accurate
*I often have to scan 4 times and take the average temp, because they are never the same, however, it is still faster and less invasive than taking a temp the other ways.

I hate taking my kids' temperatures. I have never been able to bring myself to do it rectally, they never want to keep a thermometer in their mouths, my baby is so squirmy for underarm readings, and I've had trouble with my last two ear thermometers. This one sounds so simple, I'd love to try it!

I find it really hard to take my son's temperature because when he is sick he is really miserable. He doesn't want the thermometer under is arm or under is tongue. He usually wants to sleep it off and I have to wake him to take his temperature with the typical thermometer. This is a great product -- I would love to win. Thanks for the chance:)

When i take my kis temperature i find that they start covering there ears because they think it hurts.
I am careful they just don't like me putting it in there ear.
So i think this would be nicer to use and gentle.

Frustrations abound! I had an ear themometer but tossed that in the garbage because it was never acurate. It would read 94.1 when they kid had a 104! Then there is the digital themometer that has a Celsius AND F reading option but it always seems to give it to me in C. Grrr.... The doc doesn't want to hear from me "well my wrist registers...."

I never had it in me to take my daughter's temperature rectally, so I've always done it under her arm pit (after all, the doctor does this). Never very accurate, but luckily she's never been really really sick. She's super headstrong and stubborn so it's always an interesting experience.

Oh the dreaded thermometer . . . my 5 year old can finally do it orally - sort of. Where does that leave my 3 year old? He certainly doesn't want me to do it rectally!! Usually I end up trying for an under-the-armpit (the ear thermometers are awful for us), and I feel like I NEVER really know what his temp is. Ugh!

This is wonderful! I agree where was this when mine were babies. It is frustrating trying to get an accurate temp. and trying to figure out the right way to do so.

My biggest frustration is taking underarm temperatures on my child after she was over a year. She won't stay still for a rectal reading and can't close her mouth for an oral reading. Underarm readings are all over the place and really inaccurate.
