Braun ThermoScan Ear Thermometer IRT3020 Review

When Hayden was younger he had severe eczema, which cause him an infection and was admitted into hospital because of it. With all infection you get a high temperature and that’s what rang the alarm bells for us.

We were kindly given the Braun ThermoScan to review, a blessing in disguise really. Although Hayden hasn’t been admitted into hospital since before his 1st birthday (thank god, touch wood) we are so glad that our lives have crossed paths with this device. For one its fast, reliable, smart & what poorly child likes to sit still waiting a minute with something stuck under their armpit?

First Impressions:
– Compact
– Subtle colours
– Fast Reading
– Very Hygienic

If there is one essential item that must be reliable and easy to use for your child, it’s the thermometer. With the Braun ThermoScan® ear thermometer, taking your child’s temperature has never been as simple or efficient.

We have had to only use it twice with Hayden for his molars. Hes been brilliant with his teething not fussy at all but does get poorly, gathers a temperate and want extra cuddles (I am not complaining one bit). We were using a normal normal under the armpit thermometer before the Thermoscan. Due to Hayden being extremely hyper and a complete fidget constantly has ants in his pants – unless hes watching a movie of course. It would be a bit of a nightmare when when taking his temp in the hospital, a complete fight.

How does the Braun ThermoScan work?
Braun ThermoScan IRT ear thermometers measure the infrared heat generated by the eardrum and surrounding tissue. When the Braun ThermoScan IRT is placed in the ear, it continuously monitors the infrared radiation emitted by the eardrum. Once the thermometer obtains an accurate reading, the measurement is complete and the result is displayed.

Extremely impressed – I didn’t even need to use the guide to figure out how it works. Put a fresh disposable lens filter on. Press the power button, place the probe into the ear (not too deep) and press the start button. Just above the button will be a green light which will flash when the temp is being taken. Once completed after about 5 seconds the thermometer till beep and display the temperature. I love how its not just limited to children of a certain age – prefect for newborn, children and adults too. Mr Berice can’t sit still for that long either so ideal for him too HAHA

  1. I’m so glad you posted this. I have been looking for a good ear thermometer. All of the ones that I have bought so far have been terrible and are not accurate.
