The temperature that you read is
called "arterial temperature" and
is the most accurate of all temperatures,
since it comes from
the heart. It will usually be close
to rectal temperature, but might
be quite different under some
conditions, particularly if your
child has taken Tylenol, Advil, or
other antipyretic, since your TemporalScanner will indicate
reduced fever much faster than rectal. Also,
when your child develops a fever, the
TemporalScanner will indicate it much faster than rectal.
As proven in a Harvard Medical School study on
infants, your TemporalScanner is more accurate than an
ear thermometer; and as provien in multiple hospital
studies, has accuracy comparable to a rectal thermometer.
This incredible accuracy with just a gentle forehead scan.
