Braun No-Touch Forehead Thermometer Review

NTF3000-left-image
I’ve recently had the opportunity to try the new Braun No-Touch Forehead Thermometer.  It was everything I’d hoped it would be!  The thermometer is easy to use, has the ability to be used touching the forehead or without touching, and best of all, is accurate!  It retails for around $65.00 – $90.00 dependingon where you are buying, but to me, as a nurse and a mom, it’s well worth it!  The one point that I have to make, though, is that placement is very specific.  There are pictures on the thermometer to show you the proper place to take an accurate temperature, and it is bang on.  If you stray from this point, your temperature will vary, inevitably reading much higher that it actually is.  I tested this out on my son, using 3 types of thermometers: the oral thermometer, ear thermometer, andforehead thermometer.  The oral and forehead were almost exactly the same reading, the ear was slightly lower, which is normal.  In comparison, there was little variation between the three, especially if you take into account the methods used.  I love this thermometer!  It is by far the easiest, fastest and least invasive method I have EVER used, and if you have a baby that you don’t want to risk waking, using the no-touch method is incredible!  I would highly recommend this to any parent!  This would also make a wonderful baby shower gift to any mom out there.  Buy one, try it yourself.  You’ll be hooked!I’ve recently had the opportunity to try the new Braun No-Touch Forehead Thermometer.  It was everything I’d hoped it would be!  The thermometer is easy to use, has the ability to be used touching the forehead or without touching, and best ofall, is accurate!  It retails for around $65.00 – $90.00 depending on where you are buying, but to me, as a nurse and a mom, it’s well worth it!  The one point that I have to make, though, is that placement is very specific.  There are pictures on the thermometer to show you the proper place to take an accurate temperature, and it is bang on.  If you stray fromthis point, your temperature will vary, inevitably reading much higher that it actually is.  I tested this out on my son, using 3 types of thermometers: the oral thermometer, ear thermometer, and forehead thermometer.  The oral and forehead were almost exactly the same reading, the ear was slightly lower, which is normal.  In comparison, there was little variation between the three, especially if you take into account the methods used.  I love this thermometer!  It is by far the easiest, fastest and least invasive method I have EVER used, and if you have a baby that you don’t want to risk waking, using the no-touch method is incredible!  I would highly recommend this to any parent!  This would also make a wonderful baby shower gift to any mom out there.  Buy one, try it yourself.  You’ll be hooked!
