Exergen Temporal Artery Thermometer Review & GIVEAWAY!

If you’ve been a reader of mine, you are well aware of how often LA has been sick this winter. Every winter actually. He has asthma and get sicks pretty easy and when he does get sick, his asthma flairs up. It’s rather difficult for us at times to tell if he is sick or if it’s a flair up. Every time he has gotten sick this winter I would run around the house like a crazy- mad mama trying to find a good thermometer. I would end up finding the THREE that we owned and try all of them and the most frustrating thing would always happen. Each one would give me a different reading. Then, I would take his temp again and each one gave me yet another reading. None were ever consistent so I had no idea what to believe and knew I couldn’t rely on any of them for an accurate reading.

That’s when I went on the search for yet another thermometer. I had heard great things about Exergen‘s Temporal Artery Thermometer so I contacted them to see if they had any reviews available and I was thrilled when they said yes! There are really only a few things I look for in a thermometer and they are:

  • Accuracy (not too much to ask for, right?) 
  • Ease of use so my husband doesn’t have a hard time when I am not at home
  • Something that would not disturb little one if they happen to be sleeping when I need to check their temp
That’s about it. I don’t think that’s asking for too much, do you? When the Exergen came I immediately opened it and started testing it on my husband (he’s such a good sport!), myself and LA. I was immediately pleased that EVERY time I took some one’s temp it would always be within a fraction of a number. For example, if I took LA’s temp and it read 98.9 and then I took it one – two more times it would be either 98.8 or 98.9 or 99.0. It was never way off like on the other thermometers we have used. The Exergen works by scanning the heat that comes off the forehead via the temporal artery. After testing this thermometer numerous times, when LA did get sick I felt very comfortable using the Exergen Temporal Artery Thermometer for an accurate reading. 
LA and I both ended up with the flu several weeks back and this was such a wonderful tool to have in the house. It meets every want I mentioned above and it is easy to use, accurate and allows me to take his temperature without waking him! I love it! It’s very easy to use! All you have to do it press and hold a button while moving the thermometer from forehead to just above the ear. My husband didn’t have a hard time using it and was able to quickly (and accurately) take temperatures! This thermometer is this mama’s dream come true! 
In my reviews I normally do more of a company overview along with the product review and our experience, however, I feel this product speak very highly for itself. I had a lot to say about our experience and I am thrilled that I no longer have to search the house for numerous thermometers and wonder which one is accurate when one of our children are sick. This has brought me peace of mind and I am a huge Exergen fan and will recommend it to every parent I know!
