Braun New Infrared Ear Thermometer, IRT6030

Mommy Jane always feel worried when my Little Angels felt sick. It's heartbreaking and can actually be pretty dangerous if we don't know the temperature of their body. One of the best and reliable way to tell if my Little Angels are sick is by using a good, accurate and reliable thermometer. Recently Mommy Jane was given Braun's new infrared ear thermometer with the model IRT6030 to check on.
After using it for few days, Mommy Jane found out that the tip on Braun's new infrared ear thermometer, IRT6030 ("Braun IRT6030") had an exclusive with pre-warmed technology designed to minimise the cooling effect of the tip inside the ear canal which will provide accurate measurements time after time. As most Mom knew that the tip on other thermometers area was cool when the reading is taken which can lead to inaccurate readings but Braun IRT6030 is the only brand to have this technology.
In addition, Braun IRT6030 had a unique positioning system. The ExacTemp technology uses a light and beep to confirm the proper positioning.
Braun IRT6030 comes with night light feature and memory function. It helps to take a temperature even when the room is dark for easy reading and recalls the last temperature reading for us to monitor our children fever. With its large screen, Braun IRT6030 was easy to see.
Our children can suffer from fever many times throughout the year and we as parents will usually take our child's temperature several times during each bout of fever and depending on how unwell the child feels. What I like about this Braun IRT6030 is, it had disposable lens filter that enable hygienic use without having to clean or disinfect the sensor and virtually eliminate cross-contamination. Just fit a new Braun lens filter each time you had used it to ensures that dirt or ear wax don't build up and clog the filter membrane which could lead to inaccurate temperature readings. It might a bit expensive to incurred additional cost for the filter but for hygiene purposes, I would recommend all Mom to use filter instead. All new Braun IRT6030 comes will 20 disposable lens filter for you to use.
Braun IRT6030 measures the infrared heat generated by the eardrum and surrounding tissue. This is because our eardrum shares blood supply with the temperature control centre in the brain, measurement with Braun IRT6030 accurately reflects changes in core body temperature.
Braun IRT6030 comes with a nice protective case with lens filter storagei for hygiene and convenient purposes
How to use Braun IRT6030 ? It is very simple. Just remove the thermometer from the protective case. Then press the Power button like below.
Attach a new lens filter and fit the probe snuggly into the ear canal. Press and release the Start button and once you heard the beep sound that signal the completed measurement, the temperature of your child result will be display at the screen. If the probe has not been constantly placed in a stable position in the ear canal, a subsequent of short beeps with sound, the ExacTemp light will go out and the display will show an error message (POS=position error). In case of variance of reading, then take the highest temperature as reference.
Braun IRT6030 is supplied with two 1.5V type AA (LR 06) batteries. 2 long lasting lithium batteries were included in the packaging for immediate use. Just open the battery compartment and put in the new batteries. 
Do check out the temperature below which consider normal, moderate and high fever :-
Age range                 Green (Normal)            Yellow (Moderate)             Red (High Fever)
0-3 months                   35.8-37.4C                           N/A                                Above 37.4C
3-36 months                 35.4-37.6C                      37.6-38.5C                         Above 38.5C 
Above 36 months         35.4-37.7C                      37.7-39.4C                         Above 39.4C 
It is very easy to use. Even my eldest son, WH able to measure his little brother temperature at the correct position. The right ear measurement may differ from the measurement taken in the left ear. Therefore, always take the temperature in the same ear and the ear must be free from obstructions or excess earwax build-up to take an accurate reading.
Braun was no. 1 brand among doctors and even my panel doctor is using Braun thermometer to check out the temperature of its patients. It is also Mom's first choice leading brand because of the accuracy and easy to use functions. Even daycare nowadays also using Braun Ear Thermometer to check on each child before allowed to go in to their respective class to avoid the spread of the popular HFMD ("Hand, Foot and Mouth Disease") that are common to all toddler aged 3-6 years old. Braun IRT6030  is available at most pharmacies. For more information, you could check out from their facebook page at www.facebook.com/BraunHealthcareMalaysia for more information and details.
With Braun New Infrared Ear Thermometer, Mommy Jane had a peace of mind because Braun IRT6030 had helped to check out the temperature of my Little Angels accurately. Once the temperature is in a bit of high side, Mommy Jane could give them some medication and water before it become worst. Early detection better than cure. With Braun IRT6030, it will be the best way to take a temperature of our little ones.
