I have heard this if such medical devices are not sterilized properly then these devices could become the reason of spreading the infections and all. But that device does not takes a chance of a single percent, as it is really very easy to use for both the one who is taking the reading and the one whom we are using.
Being a nurse I keep on collecting such medical devices. I earlier saw that with the pediatrician of the clinic. I really liked it so thought I get such device to include in my medical kit so this we can use when I am in pinch of emergency. You can easily take the readings without worrying about germs and bacteria as you are not going to touch this device with anyone. And the places like hospitals or when one thermometer is kept for numbers of people then this thermometer is the best option as it won't transfer anybody's germs...
As being retired in the medical field and having a special needs grand child, this thermometer is just the thing that can make having to take a temp very easy. It is very simple to use as just aiming it at the temple and you have a accurate reading. As having to take temps at night when children so often run a fever, and not wanting to wake them with ordinary thermometer, this unit makes that possible. I would also recommend it for elderly people or bed ridden patients as it is easy to use and read. I have now used it every day for the last month and there is no sign of the batteries failing. No more taking temps with the oral method, having to wait as this thermometer takes only seconds for a accurate reading. Yes..to this product.
That is a nice thermometer, I am a Registered Nurse work in a hospital and I generally keep such medical devices in my kit but my previous thermometer was not working properly and due to this I bought that new device and I am pretty happy with that infrared thermometer.
