A recent survey reveals that over 50% of nurses in the U.S. use a temporal artery thermometer professionally – more than oral (48%), rectal (13%), axillary (23%), and ear thermometers (25%). A unique combination of accuracy and ease of use have made temporal artery thermometers number one in health care.
“Nurses are on the frontline of patient care and are the future of healthcare. To deliver optimal patient care, healthcare professionals need a high quality, noninvasive thermometer. Backed by over 70 peer-reviewed clinical studies, the Exergen TemporalScanner provides critical benefits of accuracy, comfort, and ease of use,” said Francesco Pompei, Ph.D., CEO of Exergen Corporation. “Monitoring nurses’ preferences and insights on thermometry methods over the years has given us invaluable information about their needs and we are committed to meeting them.”
The survey was conducted through allnurses.com, an online nursing community with more than one million members. The website supports and elevates the nursing profession by providing a place where nurses and nursing students can network, learn and support one another
