As the UK’s most popular way to measure a sick child’s temperature (1*), the ear thermometer remains the go-to for new parents and those with a little more experience. Regarded by parents as one of the most reliable and accurate methods of taking a little one’s temperature (2*), Braun have upgraded their ear thermometer so it now has more standout features than ever before.
“Due to advancements in modern thermometers, good quality in ear thermometers are now as accurate as rectal, as blood vessels move towards the surface of the tissue surrounding the ear drum when a child is suffering from a raised temperature. In fact, the internal temperature inside the ear is closer to the temperature of the body when they are suffering from a fever.” Dr. Sarah Brewer
Introducing the Braun ThermoScan® 7 Ear thermometer with Age Precision® technology.
As the definition of fever changes with age – what is a normal reading in a four year old can be high in a newborn – the ThermoScan® 7 features an adjustable fever guidance system, which allows you to set the age of a child (0-3 months, 3-36 months and 36 months to adult) so you can take an accurate reading. The thermometer also combines ergonomic design with a patented pre-warmed tip and ExacTemp® guidance system.
Whereas the tip of other thermometers can cool the area within the ear where the temperature is being measured and result in variable readings, the tip on the ThermoScan® 7 is pre-warmed before use, ensuring professional accuracy that parents can rely on. The pre-warmed tip also makes for a more pleasant experience for little ones and is suitable for use with newborns. The ExacTemp® guidance system confirms when the thermometer is safely secured in the correct position with a light and a beep, delivering an accurate reading in just a few seconds.
As well as being supplied in a case for convenient storage, the Braun ThermoScan® 7 has a new front panel display with big screen, night light feature and a memory function to store the last nine temperature readings. New BPA and latex-free disposable hygienic probe covers are also available. Simply change the probe cover after each use, so that maintain consistent accuracy by making sure any earwax or dirt left on the tip after use is removed and does not interfere with the reading.
