When the ReliOn Temple Touch Thermometer came in the mail for me to review, I was so excited about it that I charged directly over to my husband holding it out in my hand saying, “Let me try this out on you”, but my patient ran away.
Apparently I’m Nurse Ridiculous, and I shouldn’t chase after somebody while trying to stick something on their head.
The lowdown: You push the start button, wait for 2 beeps, hold it directly against the temple until you hear a series of beeps, and then read the temperature on the digital display. It’s as easy as pie, and takes all of 6 seconds.
If you want to take the temperature again, you need to wait for 2 minutes for the thermometer to reset itself, but it sure beats shaking the old oral thermometers of yesteryear.
We tested it many times on myself, my son, and my husband, the runaway patient. We compared the results to our trusty oral thermometer, and they came out nearly identical every time.
Cons: Reset time takes 2 minutes (might bother some people, but doesn’t bother me)
My suggestions: I think it would be great if it came with a protective case. I worry a little bit that the display might get scratched, or the area where the thermometer takes the reading might get damaged.
In a nutshell: The pros win out big time. Thumbs up for the Temple Touch!
