Use Exergen SafetyScan Caps for Accurate Fever Screening

Compare the temperature reading to circadian correction chart at right for the local time. If temperature is above the fever temperature, the scanned person has a fever.

Information in this chart was obtained from a multi-year study with more than 90,000 temperatures collected using Exergen temporal artery thermometers at a leading U.S. medical center.2 Values are average patient temperature plus 2 standard deviations, stratified by time. In the study, the across-day average plus 2 standard deviations was 100.4°F (38.0°C), matching the traditional fever definition.
