    • A. I think she should be able to. You start with it positioned over the eyebrow and slide it around to the temple. Try that with her finger and if she can do that she should be able to use this with no problem.

    I liked this product very much. I had 2 kids one is 3 years old and second one is 7 months old. elder one gets seizures when he has high fever. my both kids got high fever at same time and this helped me alot. taking temperatures for every hour and giving medications based on fever is really very painful job with 2 kids. this helped me alot. this accuracy is very good. dont know how others dont get an accurate reading. i took reading for myy younger son it showed 103.6 and immediately we went to emergency there they took the temp reading as 103.4 with their thermometer. first thing we have to do is put closely to the skin like flat and take reading. another thing is clean the lens with Alcohol swab atleast once a day while using the thermometer. we have to take care of the lens so that it wont get dusted with debris. It helped a lot. but one thing is the cap is really not very tight for it. thats what is disa[ppointing me other wise its great product.

    I love this thermometer. It's true that the readings vary slightly each time you take it. I purposely do several readings. I watch to see a general temperature range emerge. I usually swipe each side of the forehead and do a quick test behind one ear. The first read is usually too cool, so I'll discard that reading and repeat it. After that reading, I might get a 101.3, 101.8 and a 101 - but I am able to extrapolate that my child's fever is probably around 101.8 (the highest reading). I can do those three tests in less than 10 seconds (and while my child is sleeping) which is so much easier than other types of thermometers. I've used digital, oral, rectal and ear thermometers in the past and this is my favorite. One trick to get it to read accurately is to make sure you get a smooth (but completely flush) pass over the temporal artery (which is in the depression on either side of your forehead). If you miss this spot as you cross the forehead, your temps are going to be way off.

    I am an RN. I work in home care and have done without a thermometer instead of having to deal with probe covers and such. If the patient did not own a thermometer, I used the back of my hand for guestimation. When the Exergen was the deal of the day recently I decided this was an opportunity I couldn't pass by. I love this device. It is so fast, easy, and appears to be accurate. All you need to accompany this equipment is an alcohol swab for light cleaning between patients. I would never have paid full price for one but the value price was great (less than $40). It is sturdy and should last a long time with only battery changes as maintenance. One little drawback, it came with a cover for the head but that did not snap on well and I lost it the first day. All good, it was not used for obtaining results only to protect the head when not in use. I would recommend this thermometer over any other means. Much more accurate than the tympanic models as there is no wrong way to place this on the person.

    Even nurses in dr. offices will tell you different temps with multiple tries... and if you take the temp make sure they haven't had a hat on or the head covered that will give a false reading also them sitting in front of the heat same as if they have an ice pack on their head...my son's pediatrician uses this exact thermometer that's why i bought one and shes a child surgeon also!!!! I have also used this on adults and buying it for my daughter for my granddaughter. yes it might have a tiny variation, but all thermometers do!!!! Especially if you take temps multiple times. I had one when my son was born and when it finally quit(more than 8 years later) I bought another one...if you keep getting bad readings it might be a dirty sensor or the battery is low. my son is 9 now and after trying all the thermometers out there, the only thermometer i will ever use on him is this kind...and he is fine and well!!!! if it gets anywhere near 101 i take him to the doc if i cant break it every mother should.

    I bought this product at least 5 - 5 1/2 years ago when I first had my son and he had RSV. I watched the nurses use something similar in the hospital and absolutely loved it. I went shopping afterwards and found one at a reasonable price. I took it with me to my next appointment and my pediatrician wrote all the information down to pass on to other parents. We compared it to their thermometer and it was close enough that she was impressed. I have had it since, changed the battery twice, if that and it's still working. Though I think the cap could be tighter or more secure in some manner, I absolutely love it. No waking a sick child or person to take a temp. The only trouble is to make sure that they haven't been laying or sleeping on the side to take the temp. Then you can get a pretty outrageous temp, believe me I did. I still keep a standard mercury thermometer as a back up just in case, but I never use anything other than this one and highly recommend it to everyone. I've even had friends try it out just to see for themselves.
