ThermoScan 5 Ear Thermometer

For infants, children and adults

Why measuring in the ear?
The ear is an excellent site to measure temperature. Braun ThermoScan measures the infrared heat generated by the eardrum and the surrounding tissues. The eardrum shares blood supply with the temperature control center in the brain. Therefore temperature changes are reflected more quickly and accurately than at other sites.

Unlike other ear thermometers, Braun ThermoScan features a pre-warmed tip that minimizes the cooling effect that could result from the introduction of a cool probe tip. The pre-warmed tip helps ensure accuracy measurement after measurement.

I'm a GP and have tried many different thermometers - I don't have any shares with these guys but it is the best I came across so far. Easy to use and always exact. The problem with most thermometers is that over time they need re-calibration but this one goes for years and still gives the correct temperature. In my job you need one you can trust and this one delivers - most of my colleagues are also using it now.

I've been using a Braun thermoscan for four years since our first child arrived. I regard it as absolutely essential for the safe caring of children. With one of these, you can take a child's temperature accurately and in a couple of seconds, even if they are asleep.
Children can develop extremely high temeperatures very quickly. With one of these, you can accurately monitor the progression of the illness and check that the Calpol / Neurophen is doing its stuff. If the temperature doesn't respond to the medicine, that's a sign to monitor things more closely and get help if the temperature goes too high.
There's a bit of technique required to get consistent readings, but follow the instructions and you'll do fine. Basically you turn it on, place it in the ear, pull back the ear lobe and press the button til it beeps. It's usually worth measuring both ears - any significant difference between the two can mean an ear-infection on one side, or your technique needs checking! The battery seems to last forever so no worries there.
Contrary to Braun's advice, I've found you can re-use the disposable caps quite a few times (it could get very pricey if you didn't). A quick rub with a baby wipe gets them clean, though if you start to get inconsistent readings then try changing the cap.
We have 3 small children and there's no way I'd be without one of these, so very very strongly recommended to any parent.

Easy to use, even on the smallest of ears, quick and non intrusive so baby doesn't wake up! just as good on grown ups. Can't recommend it enough.

I bought this for my dad, he was using various mouth thermometers and sometimes getting different readings. Having noticed many doctors/GPs were using this I thought best to get something I would hope is very reliable and accurate. My dad has become infatic about his temperature, taking readings every few hours, and so far seems very pleased with it, he does't and won't use the mouth thermometers any more. We have done a large amount of research regarding getting good and accurate readings for temperature and this in ear would seem to be a very good method. I have absolutely no complaints with the unit and would recommend it to anyone who needs constant good accurate readings.

I have spoke to specialist nurses at The Royal London hospital regarding the use and replacement of the caps, they use a similar in ear thermometer. If being used by the same person, then changing the cap may be best done after several uses or when the cap is visibly dirty. If being used by different people, then changing the cap may be best to avoid any transmission of infections.

Regards,

I am a doctor and this is the best electronic item i bought for my child ever. I bought it before he was born and he is now 3 years old and it is still in perfect working condition. Whenever he cries and all the normal things( like a nappy change, feeds etc) have been sorted out we check his temperature and invariably he is running a temperature without us realising it. Everyone who has a small child will know how cranky children become when they are sick. They will not let you use a thermomter ( even the paper one we have in the NHS).

This braun one takes a second and now my son uses it himself in his ear and gives it to me to read!!! I strongly recommend this to evry parent and also for adult use.

This is a simple and reliable product for the price, and is hard to fault in everyday use.

However, bear in mind when purchasing that this thermometer requires disposable plastic caps. This isn't the case with other digital thermometers such as head thermometers (although admittedly the one we previously used was less reliable).

A limited number of caps come in the box, but you will shortly require replacements. The RRP for the plastic caps is £8 for 40, although they can be bought on Amazon for £4. Bear in mind that is 10 per use. I have also seen them sold in bulk on Amazon for about 6p per cap.

We love our thermometer, bought it when our son was born and were really surprised to see that its the same one they used on the maternity ward when our daughter was born! Will never go back. Always works and earpiece refills have been easy to get hold of.

I have 2 of these, one for my work as a GP, and one for home use. At work it obviously gets a new disposable cap every time for hygiene reasons between patients; at home the cap gets a wipe, but the thermometer functions perfectly well and accurately without changing the cap (and would get a bit pricey to run as parents if you did change it every time).

I have found this to be an excellent, accurate and reliable model. Every responsible parent (and GP!) should have a thermometer, and this is the best I have used (and I have used many many different thermometers). The battery lasts ages, it has survived many falls to the ground (mostly while my toddler plays doctor), and it is incredibly quick and easy to use.

There's a good reason these are the most common thermometers used by doctors...!
