PRODUCT: Braun ThermoScan 5 IRT3020 Ear Thermometer (

Braun ThermoScan 5 IRT3020

DESCRIPTION: An in-ear thermometer which gives accurate temperature readings in seconds. Features include LCD screen, ExacTemp pre-warmed tip and memory function to store previous temperature readings. Comes with protective storage case, 21 disposable lens filters, and instructions for use. Requires 2 x AA batteries (included).

GOOD POINTS: This is a brilliantly quick and easy way to take a young child's temperature with the least amount of stress and discomfort for baby as well as parent.

The thermometer is placed in the ear and will take your child’s temperature in just a few seconds through measuring the heat generated by the eardrum and surrounding tissue. An innovative ExacTemp pre-warmed tip (patented) improves the reading accuracy, and a soft flexible tip ensures the thermometer can be inserted into your child's ear gently and comfortably.

The temperature is displayed on an easy-to-read LCD screen in either Centigrade or Farenheit. Usefully, if the probe is not correctly positioned in the ear canal, the thermometer will sound a series of short beeps, and an error message will display on screen.

The thermometer automatically stores the last eight readings in case you need to make comparisons, and it thoughtfully has an automatic power shut off after sixty seconds of inactivity. 

It comes in its own easy-fit case which protects it from contamination and damage, and the accompanying instructions manual is easy to follow. The thermometer is self-standing (in its case), has soft and easy to use control keys, and is comfortable to hold. 

The thermometer comes with a pack of disposable covers, or lens filters, which should be fitted onto the end of the probe before taking a temperature reading and removed afterwards, to prevent the transfer of infections and also protect the sensor. The unused covers can be stored in the case along with the thermometer.

In our opinion, this thermometer is well designed, easy to use, and provides much needed peace-of-mind to parents with poorly children.

BAD POINTS: None that we can find!
