As we all know by now, Jack is scheduled for a hip surgery next week which will result in a bilateral spica cast. For the purpose of being as nice as possible to a presumably frustrated baby, I am going to bypass all the ‘gold standard’ methods of temperature taking and am looking for a temporal artery thermometer. There are two that I would really, REALLY like…
Scanadu Scout – What an all-purpose tool this could be to a CDHer?! Retail $500
But, alas, I am not independently wealthy, or any kind of wealth for that matter.
I am looking to make this investment this week and am looking for some suggestions of temporal artery thermometers that some of you have used and found success.
I feel like this post is a little misleading. The two above thermometers are the only temporal artery thermometers that I have any experience with (the Scanadu Scout is only virtual experience). This is not the typical price for in-home temporal thermometers. Those two examples are on my pipe-dream wish list. In-Home use models tend to be priced around $50 or so. I don’t want people to think that I am taking out a small loan to investigate a fever. Sorry. : )
