The NEW Welch Allyn PRO6000 Ear Thermometer is Here! August 12 2015
MonsterMed is incredibly excited for the launch of the Welch Allyn PRO6000 ThermoScan Digital Ear Thermometer. Ever since we first heard whispers about the product in the beginning of year, we have been on the edge of our seats waiting for the launch announcement. We have finally received it!
The Welch Allyn PRO6000 ThermoScan Digital Ear Thermometer has a number of new features and functions that improve upon the popular PRO4000 Thermometer. The PRO6000 will round out Welch Allyn’s industry leading line of thermometers, which includes the SureTemp Plus 690, SureTemp Plus 692 and CareTemp Touch Free. The Welch Allyn PRO6000 Ear Thermometer will start shipping on September 1, 2015.
The PRO6000 Digital Ear Thermometer’s key feature is PerfecTemp Technology, which provides superior measurement accuracy without the need for precise positioning in the ear. It also corrects for shallow placement in the ear, which is a common issue that results in low readings. The PRO6000 has a superior user interface design with a large, backlit display that’s easier to read in low room light conditions and is located on the back of the device for easy viewing. The ergonomic handle design fits comfortably in your hand and is easy to hold and operate while audible and visual cues will help guide the operator on proper use. Clinical workflow enhancements include a 60 second pulse timer for manual measurement of respirations or pulse, a dedicated memory recall, C/F scale conversion operation buttons and the ability to set temperature scale default to Celsius or Fahrenheit. The PRO6000 integrates with the Connex Spot Monitor to simplify EMR data transfer and reduce user error.
In addition to the PRO6000’s improvements, there have also been improvements on the disposable probe covers as well. The new probe covers for the PRO6000 feature a flange design that prevent unauthorized “knock-off” probe covers to be used which could potentially jeopardize reading accuracy and damage the device.
The PRO6000 ThermoScan Digital Ear Thermometer is ideal for medical environments including ICU, PACU, ED, Triage, Surgical Floors, Blood Banks, Dialysis, Long Term Care, School Health, Pediatrics, Family Practice, Internal Medicine and more. It is the ideal choice for critical patient measurement applications requiring higher precision accuracy. Order your PRO6000 today!

Product Battle: Exergen Temporal Scanner Thermometer vs. Welch Allyn CareTemp Touchless Thermometer April 16 2015
The battle for infrared thermometer superiority is about to begin. How will the well know heavyweight Exergen Temporal Scanner Thermometer compare to the newcomer Welch Allyn CareTemp Touchless Thermometer? Let’s not draw this out any longer, Let’s get it on!
Welch Allyn thought of everything with their New CareTemp Touchless Thermometer, including the price point. More than $100 less than the Exergen Temporal Thermometer, the CareTemp certainly wins this category. Don’t let that low price fool you though. Welch Allyn is known for quality with all of their products.
While some may enjoy the sleek look of the Welch Allyn CareTemp Thermometer, many feel the Exergen Temporal Scanner Thermometer looks like a more complete unit. The black display backdrop allows the bright red digital letters to really stands out for easy readings. With two categories down and still no clear winner, this contest will come down to features.
Both of these units use an infrared sensor for their readings and offer quick, accurate results. The difference is in the distance needed away from the patient. The Exergen Thermometer needs to be placed on the patients forehead and swiped across a temporal artery but is gentle enough to be used while the patient is sleeping. The Welch Allyn CareTemp Thermometer needs to be between 4-6 cm away from the center of the patient’s forehead. While no skin contact will eliminate cross-contamination and the need for disposable covers, the user needs to concentrate on the distance that they are away from the patient. Another difference is in the warranty with each product. While the Welch Allyn CareTemp offers a generous 2 Year Warranty, the Exergen Temporal Thermometer offers an even more generous Lifetime Warranty.
You cannot buy a bad unit if you go with either of these, which is why it is impossible to choose a winner. We have given you the differences, now it is up to you on which ones you feel are more beneficial to you and your facility.
