Pediatricians Choose Temporal Artery Thermometer as Top Pick Among Temperature Taking Methods

(September 12, 2017)

WATERTOWN, Mass, Sept. 12, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- For the eighth year in a row, pediatricians ranked the temporal artery thermometer (TAT) as the number one overall preferred method of thermometry, according to a recent survey. Of the 216 survey respondents, more than half (54 percent) of pediatricians chose temporal artery as their preferred method of thermometry based on ease of use. In addition, 41 percent cited temporal artery as the overall preferred method of thermometry compared to ear, rectal, oral and axillary, ranking the TAT number one in this category.

This new study demonstrates how the Exergen TemporalScanner remains, over time, the most trusted temporal artery thermometer brand and one of the top overall thermometer brands used and recommended in pediatrician offices. Survey findings show 39 percent of pediatricians use Exergen Temporal Artery Thermometer in their offices, and nearly 75 percent of those pediatricians recommend the Exergen brand to their patients and colleagues. The survey results also indicate that pediatricians use the Exergen TAT for a range of patient ages.

“Every year, these study results confirm that the Exergen TAT is the number one preferred by pediatricians for a variety of reasons, which include ease of use and noninvasive properties,” said Dr. Francesco Pompei, CEO of Exergen Corporation. “More and more pediatricians trust and rely on the TAT, whose accuracy and versatility is backed by more than 70 clinical studies. It offers great versatility, as well, and pediatricians are comfortable using our thermometer on all ranges of patient ages and medical conditions.”

The survey captured pediatricians’ commentary about temporal artery thermometry, specifically strengths of the Exergen TAT. One physician respondent noted, “I have used the Exergen TAT for many years – it is easy, quick and gives me the information I need.” Another respondent stated, “Temporal Artery is easiest to use – digital, oral and rectal are more time consuming and require patient cooperation.”

The survey was conducted by Pragmatic Research, Inc. and pediatricians were not told that it was sponsored by Exergen. The results were consistent with other independent research involving nurses and other healthcare professionals in various clinical settings.


Exergen manufactures and markets two types of the TemporalScanner thermometer: a professional version for doctors' offices and hospitals, and a consumer model sold in major retailers nationwide. Nearly two billion temperatures are taken each year with the TemporalScanner. It is used in thousands of hospitals, clinics and pediatricians' offices across the country, as well as in millions of homes. It is the #1 preference of pediatricians, #1 preference of nurses in the US, and #1 selling retail thermometer. The Exergen TemporalScanner's performance is supported by more than 70 peer-reviewed published studies covering all ages from preterm infants to geriatrics and all care areas from hospitals to homes.
