Thanks to Braun’s patented pre-warmed tip and ExacTemp® technology, Braun ThermoScan® is widely regarded as a benchmark for accuracy and reliability. That’s why most health professionals choose Braun ThermoScan®*. In fact, Braun ThermoScan® is the number one brand among doctors*.
The Braun ThermoScan 5 measures the infrared heat generated by the eardrum and surrounding tissue. Since the eardrum shares blood supply with the temperature control centre in the brain, the ear accurately reflects the core body temperature. When the temperature rises, this can be easily spotted in the ear. The result: the ear is an excellent place to measure temperature.
Temperature recording for better monitoring When you’ve spent nights watching over your sick child it’s not always easy to remember the various temperature readings. So Braun have taken this into account in developing the new Braun ThermoScan 5. It helps you to record and manage your child’s temperature thanks to a special memory function. This records the last temperature reading so you can see whether it’s going up and down - to help you decide what to do next.
Babies and children can suffer from fever frequently throughout the year, and parents will usually take their child’s temperature several times during each bout of fever, depending on how unwell the child feels. It’s therefore vital that the Braun ThermoScan lens filter on the temperature sensor is replaced every single time a temperature reading is taken. Braun disposable lens filters enable hygienic use without having to clean or disinfect the sensor and virtually eliminate contamination passing from one person to another. What’s more, fitting a new Braun lens filter each time makes sure that dirt or ear wax don’t build up and clog the filter membrane, which could lead to inaccurate temperature readings. Only Braun lens filters fit properly and give accurate results What’s more, Braun lens filters are purpose designed to fit the Braun range and give maximum accuracy, unlike generic products which stop the temperature sensor working properly. New Braun certified disposable lens filters are also BPA and latex free for safer use. Look for the Braun logo on each lens filter to guarantee that you get the most accurate results and peace of mind. Here’s how to use and change the lens filter each time:
1.Place a new lens filter on the thermometer tip before each measurement
2.Take the temperature with lens filter fitted on the thermometer tip
3.The temperature will be shown on the display
4.Press the button below the thermometer tip to eject the used lens filter after each temperature measurement
