New Medical Study Confirms Exergen Temporal Artery Thermometer Accuracy in Hospitals

| January 24, 2014

A recent study published in MEDSURG Nursing, the official Journal of the Academy of Medical-Surgical Nurses, reported: “Based on the results of this study, temporal artery thermometers appear to be a reliable way to measure temperature noninvasively in hospitalized patients.”

The study was undertaken to evaluate the agreement of temperatures measured with a temporal artery thermometer when sequentially used by the same person and a second user in 34 postoperative patients. The differences in two temperatures measured by a single user and between two persons were small and within the range of acceptable values set by experts when evaluating thermometers for hospital use.
