Children can become unwell or sick at any time during the year, winter bugs, summer colds and even teething can induce high temperatures making it hard to keep track of your child’s temperature and any medicines that have been administered at home. Do you remember the time when you had to leave your baby with the sitter when he had a fever, armed only with a bottle of paracetamol praying that he would be ok and that the sitter remembered to give him the medication when required? We have all been there. When alternating paracetamol and Ibuprofen it becomes confusing trying to work out when your child is due the next dose, especially since you are more likely to be sleep deprived when your baby is sick. Most traditional thermometers are bulky and generate inaccurate readings making it hard to trust and track the data about your little one.
With smart technology being an expectation, it is inevitable that the world of childcare and children’s health is evolving. With new digital products appearing almost every day it is difficult for parents to choose the best product.
It is considered by many parents that the best digital thermometers are reliable, non-invasive, quick and easy to use. Many thermometers in the past used mercury, these are no longer sold and should not be used. These types of thermometers were replaced by digital oral thermometers that were easier to use but gave inaccurate readings as children tend to bite or spit out the thermometer before a reading can be achieved. In recent years the in-ear or no contact thermometer has proved more popular in the parenting community and health professionals alike. The new digital in-ear thermometers were developed to make the process quicker and less invasive taking only seconds for a reading to be achieved. With technology progressing daily even the world of digital thermometers has seen innovation with the development of smart digital thermometers. With many more parents working and children being cared for by childminders and caregivers it is also essential that parents can keep track of any medication administered when they are not present.
By bringing our medical technology into the 21st century, we can reinvigorate the child care sector for the tech-savvy parent.
