NEW WELCH ALLYN BRAUN THERMOSCAN® PRO 6000 EAR THERMOMETER

The importance of
temperature management in patient care

Body temperature is 1 of the 4 main vital signs that must be monitor to ensure sage and effective care

Inaccurate temperature measurement may compromise patient safety 

tempman-circle

Body temperature should be measured and recorded regularly with precision, consistency and diligence

It is vital to measure temperature accurately as it has a huge impact on diagnosis and treatment, and it is one of the first signs of deterioration

A complete solution
for temperature management

Welch Allyn offers a broad portfolio of non-invasive clinical thermometers that provide accurate and reliable temperature readings for any type of clinical setting:

management-ear
management-oral
management-axillary
management-rectal
management-forehead

TYMPANIC TEMPERATURE HAS BEEN PROVEN AS AN

EXCELLENT METHOD FOR MEASUREMENT

Clinical studies have shown that the ear is an excellent site for capturing accurate measurements as temperatures taken in the ear reflect the body’s core temperature1. Ear temperatures accurately reflect core body temperature2 because the eardrum shares a blood supply with the temperature control center in the brain3, the hypothalamus. Therefore, changes in body temperature may be reflected sooner in the ear as opposed to axillary, oral and rectal sites.

Advantages:

  • Ease of access and speed
  • Less invasive for the patient than oral, axillary or rectal temperature measurements
  • No mucus membrane contact
  • Staff can quickly capture measurements in the ear, even with challenging patient populations
  • It has been reported to estimate rapid fluctuations in core temperature accurately because the tympanic membrane is close to the hypothalamus (Stanhope, 2006)

The new Braun PRO 6000
help overcome challenges with tympanic readings

tempman-challenges
  • Precision of measurement has been shown to be influenced by ear canal anatomy and variability in user technique
  • Some clinicians question accuracy of tympanic devices
  • Shallow probe placement can result in readings that are low compared to core temperature because the thermometer could be reading the cooler outer ear canal

PerfecTemp™ Technology

  • Device collects information about the direction and depth of probe placement as it's placed into the ear canal and incorporates this information into the temperature calculation
  • Supports accuracy of the measurement compared to core temperature, especially when probe positioning is not ideal

ExacTemp™ Technology

  • Supports temperature measurement reliability by detecting stability of probe placement during reading. Consistent probe placement helps deliver accurate temperature measurement.
  • Feedback light flashes during measurement and remains illuminated when reading is complete indicating consistent placement of the probe.

Pre-Heated Probe Tip

  • The device's tip and sensor warn to a temperature close to that of a human body.
  • Heating the sensor increases accuracy by reducing the differential between sensor/tip temperature and tissue.
  • Heating the tip also adds to patient comfort when inserted.

The Braun PRO 6000 advantage
for accurate and reliable temperature readings.
