I wanted to know what your experience was with this product in terms of longevity. How long does it last before any issues or defects arise?

Exergen - Temporal Scanner - TAT 5000

Most of our TAT vs Axillary temperatures are about 0.3-0.4 degrees different but occasionally get a more varied comparison. Is it most likely due to user error?

Bard - Criticore

We have recently had a number of criticore units that came to our shop DOA. The current service literature is useless for the version we have. Bard has been equally useless in providing support, with the exception of having us send units in for "factory repair"

has anyone else encountered this?

What else should I know? Measure only the side of the head that is exposed. Any covering, hair, hat, etc. will prevent the heat from dissipating, and would cause the reading to be falsely high. This also applies if one side of the head is into a pillow. Slide the thermometer in a reasonably straight line across the forehead, midway between the eyebrows and the upper hairline, and not down the side of the face. Midway on the forehead area, the temporal artery is less than 2 millimeters below the skin surface, but down the side of the face, it is much deeper and less accurately measured. You should also know you have purchased the gentlest and most accurate method of temperature assessment in the world. www.exergen.com

Yes, it is sensitive to ambient temperature, which is part of the reason it is so accurate. But, as long as the thermometer is in approximately the same ambient temperature as the individual whose temperature is being taken, you don't have to be concerned. www.exergen.com

You should normally be getting reproducible results, or results within a few tenths of a degree of each other. However, a few things to know: Multiple temperatures taken over the same area in rapid succession will ultimately cool the area causing differences. If sweating, the temperature on the neck behind the ear lobe becomes the overriding temperature, and since this area is not quite as stable as the temporal artery, it can easily cooled be by the thermometer in taking multiple readings. Remember, the probe of thermometer will be at room temperature, and is about 30 degrees Fahrenheit (17 degrees Celsius) cooler than body temperature. www.exergen.com

A major reason ear thermometers are considered inaccurate by medical professionals is because the positioning of the probe in the ear canal is inconsistent, thus creating inconsistent readings and frequently missing fevers. The temporal artery thermometer scans the forehead area for the temporal artery and it is almost impossible to miss the artery during a scan. Also, the person whose temperature is being taken does not like something inserted in their ear, making good positioning even more difficult. The gentle scan across the forehead is comfortable and not objectionable. The TemporalScanner has been proven more accurate than ear thermometers by a Harvard Medical School study. www.exergen.com
