  • BD Assure Ear Thermometer: Your Chances Of An Accurate Reading? Slim To None!

    Oct 16, 2001 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Super Quick Reading, Easier Method Of Getting A Temperature!
    Cons: Temperature Inaccurate 99.8% Of The Time!

    Summary: When my daughter was born, a very thoughtful friend purchased the BD Assure Ear Thermometer as a late shower gift. She was delighted with her gift purchase, and when I unwrapped it, so was I! I had been hoping for a digital ear thermometer, but ... read more

  • This is a Piece of Crap.

    Mar 1, 2001 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: None.
    Cons: Inaccurate.

    Summary: I got this product shortly after getting the Thermoscan Ear Thermometer, and this one is not much better than that. Both tools persist in being at least a degree off, and I find it hard to believe that any doctor or nurse would take them seriously. ... read more

  • Quick temps during busy school days

    Feb 13, 2001 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: It's fast, it's accurate, it's convenient
    Cons: The reading is not always accurate if you have low batteries or a wiggly child.

    Summary: The Assure Ear Thermometer is the basic device that we use at the school I work in. I like it because it is very fast and relatively accurate. The reason I like it is because I do not have to put anything into a child's mouth. I work with ... read more

  • For the Sake of Dignity

    Feb 11, 2001 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: It's fast It's accurate It's not demeaning
    Cons: It's expensive compared to a traditional thermometer.

    Summary: Once upon a time there was one way to take a child's temperature. The process was slow, could be painful and left little dignity in the process. Today, through the advancement of science, our little ones can retain their dignity and parents ... read more

  • Is it hot in here, or is it just me?

    Jan 26, 2001 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Quick read out, compact and easy to store.
    Cons: Mega expensive, hard to stick it in a squirming, sick kid's ear!Results often sketchy.

    Summary: It's a parents' nightmare: taking the temperature of a squirming, wriggling child who is sick and fretful. You have a few temperature taking options: in the mouth, in the arm pit, in the rear(!!!) or now, with the Assure Ear Thermometer, in the ear. ... read more

  • Just Like The Doctor Uses!

    Jan 22, 2001 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: accurate, comforting to children, easy for parents to use,
    Cons: Some what bulky feeling because of the box shape.

    Summary: The Assure Ear Thermometer is great to have at hand when you suspect your loved one has a fever. Small children do not feel threatened by the thermometer because it is much like the one that their doctor might use. The tip of the thermometer goes ... read more

    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Quick and easy temperature readings
    Cons: Somewhat costly

    Summary: I was impressed the first time I had seen an ear thermometer used in my local doctors office. It was amazing! My doctor could read a temperature in a matter of seconds, not minutes. No more annoying thermometers under my tongue while trying to answer ... read more

    Sep 4, 2000 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: quick reading
    Cons: not perfectly accurate

    Summary: I agree with others about the inherent inaccuracy of the ear thermometers available on the market today. However, as an in home care giver with very small children to look after I think the Assure is a godsend. I spent a long time trying ... read more

  • Never Accurate........

    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Looks nice/Was a good idea
    Cons: Is not accurate

    Summary: For years I had wanted one of these thermometers. I believed that they were the answer to every mothers nightmare. We would no longer have to do that rectal thing or go through those endless struggles when our children were to sick to hold them in ... read more

    Pros: It was reasonably priced.
    Cons: Difficult to get an accurate temperature reading.

    Summary: I was so excited when I purchased the BD Assure Ear Thermometer. I had wanted one of these gadgets, since they came out on the market. Anyone that has tried to take the temperature of a wiggly child will understand why I wanted an ear thermometer. You ... read more

  • Not recommended where accuracy is crucial.

    Oct 17, 1999 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Easier to use than other ear thermometers.
    Cons: Inconsistent, inaccurate results, and PRICE.

    Summary: I tried this thermometer after trying the Braun ThermoScan, and although it was easier and more accurate than the Braun, I still had to go back to the standard mercury method. The advantage to this product over the Braun was first of all its ... read more
