With cold and flu season slowly but surely rearing its ugly head one of the most important things that anyone, especially parents should have on hand is a thermometer. Back in the days parents relied on old glass and mercury thermometers to take their children's temperatures. As of 2001 though 20 had banned the usage of mercury thermometers for medical use (Source: Slate) so other alternatives have become available. Consider instead a safer alternative that takes literally seconds to read the results, something that if you have a sick child is extremely important.
Braun, the forerunner in thermometry technology has recently released the Braun Forehead Thermometer, a completely safe and non invasive way to check your temperature. Have you or your child ever try to keep a thermometer in their mouth closed for a minute when their sick? Then you know how difficult it can be and if your child is an infant then you really know how difficult it can be
With the Braun Forehead Thermometer this is no longer an issue. All you need to do is swipe the forehead and that's it. The Braun Forehead Thermometer measures the temperature of the skin over the temporal artery in the head. As the temporal artery is connected to the heart and offers constant blood the artery is located close enough to the skin to offer the most accurate reading using infrared technology.
The color coded fever system along with the large easy to read screen makes it the ideal way to check your temperature. The screen changes three colors along with the temperature reading to indicate whether or not a fever is present. Green means there is no fever detected, yellow means a slightly elevated temperature and red means a fever is present. This along with the actual numerical reading is a great tool to measure temperature. Also with its back light there's no need to turn the light on if you're trying to take a temperature of a child in the dark and waking them up.
The gentle and non invasive Braun Forehead Thermometer is priced at $49.99 and is available at Walmart, Walgreen's, Publix, Babies 'R Us and Rite Aid online or in stores. Locally the Braun Forehead Thermometer can be found at Walmart located on N Burkhardt Rd or S Red Banks Rd, any of the three Walgreen's stores in Evansville, as well as Babies 'R Us located on E Lloyd Expressway in Evansville, IN.
