Thermometer (Tympanic/Ear)

I LIKE THIS ONE!
 
This takes a temperature from the patient's ear canal.This is the consumer version of what we use at Oshiro Pediatrics.  Our version is much more durable (and much more expensive). 
 
Advantages:  VERY FAST, fairly easy to use, does not require much participation from the patient.
 
Disadvantages:  Expensive.  Do not use if less than three months old and you think your child has a fever.
 
Dr. Oshiro's recommends this thermometer.  One tip:  Read the directions so you know how to aim it at the ear drum.
