With so many available, choosing the right thermometer can be confusing. But it doesn’t have to be. Here, you can find which thermometer from Braun’s range best fits you and your family.
How do ear thermometers work?
The ear is a good site for temperature measurement because it reflects the core temperature of the body*. Body temperature is regulated by the hypothalamus**, which shares the same blood supply as the tympanic membrane***. This means changes in core body temperature are usually detected faster in the tympanic membrane than other areas. For you, this means that you are able to track the progress of a fever, for example, or are able to get faster updates on temperature changes.
Choosing the right one for you
All Braun infrared ear thermometers measure heat generated by the eardrum and surrounding tissue to give an accurate temperature on an easy-to-read digital display in seconds. With different models in the range, your family are in safe hands when it comes to measuring temperature.
Forehead thermometers are a quick and fuss-free way of measuring a child’s temperature and are ideal for newborns and young children. They are a non-invasive alternative to ear-thermometers, making them great for when your child is asleep.
Digital thermometers offer flexibility when taking temperatures, as you can use them under the arm, orally, or rectally. This allows you to pick the best method that suits both you and your little one. The Braun digital thermometers use a flexible tip, meaning safer readings and comfort for your child; giving both accuracy and comfort.
