How to Use the Exergen SafetyScan Caps

Step 1. Remove clear protective cap.

Step 2. Place one black SafetyScan cap on probe head.

Step 3. Place the probe on the center of the forehead.

Step 4. Press and hold button, scan the forehead from center to hairline, touch the neck behind the earlobe, release the button.

Step 5. Read the temperature in illuminated display.

Step 6. Pop off cap with your thumb for disposal using this box, or reuse after disinfecting.

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.

Exergen Temporal Artery Thermometers are not NCITs

FDA Studies Prove Non-Contact Infrared Thermometers (NCITs) Are Not Reliable For Detecting Fevers.1,2

Non-Contact Infrared Thermometers (NCITs) have errors due to skin emissivity, skin ambient temperatures, variable perfusion on face, perspiration on face, adding up to an error range of up to 4 deg C (7 deg F), that cannot be eliminated.4 NCITs have NO peer-reviewed published clinical studies supporting their accuracy.

Exergen TemporalScanner Thermometers Are Not NCITs, and Are Proven Accurate in Detecting Fevers by More Than 100 Peer-Reviewed Published Clinical Studies.3

Exergen TemporalScanner Thermometers lightly scan the forehead from the center to the hairline, which will always cross the temporal artery. The TemporalScanner takes approximately 3000 measurements during the scan, retaining the highest, the most accurate, and discarding the rest, and with Exergen’s patented arterial heat balance method (AHB) with patented emissivity correcting infrared sensor system, eliminate the errors that NCITs cannot eliminate, resulting in a medically accurate thermometer backed by more than 100 peer-reviewed published clinical studies.5
