Why Measure in the Ear?
The ear canal is the best site to measure a fever because of its close proximity to the eardrum, which shares the blood supply of the brain's temperature control center. This site allow for a more accurate reflection of the body's core temperature. Exclusive pre-warmed tip technology is designed to help minimize the cooling effect of the tip inside the ear canal, promoting accurate measurements time after time. Unique positioning system uses a light and beep to confirm proper positioning. Memory funciton recalls the last temperature reading.
Proven more accurate than rectal or temple.** Exclusive pre-warmed tip enables repeatable accuracy. Guidance system gives visual and audible reassurance that the thermometer has been positioned correctly. Last memory recall.
