Braun ThermoScan Ear Thermometer (IRT 3520)
It is tough enough being sick, so taking a temperature should not be a source of additional discomfort. Thanks to infrared technology, the Braun ThermoScan Ear Thermometer is a fast, easy and accurate way to take the temperature of both children and adults. Even children should find the ThermoScan unobjectionable since the thermometer measures temperature after just one second in the ear.
The ear is an excellent site to measure temperature because the eardrum shares blood supply with the temperature control center in the brain. In contrast, oral temperatures are influenced by drinking, eating and breathing through the mouth. Similarly, there are potential accuracy problems with rectal temperatures which often lag behind changes in core body temperature.
To help ensure accuracy, the ThermoScan automatically takes 8 measurements and displays the highest one. Model 3520 allows you to store up to 8 temperatures in the thermometer's memory. There also is a display light for easy night-time reading.
