Battle Illness with Exergen Temporal Artery Thermometer

Exergen Thermometer

When I was a kid, the digital thermometers that were used in the ear came out in wide release.  I have to admit, I thought that was the coolest thing ever!  You can take my temperature by sticking this in my ear for a couple seconds rather than holding this thing in my mouth for […]
