Ear thermometers

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.
