Temperature Checks With Kinsa Smart Ear Thermometer
We love the Kinsa Smart Ear Thermometer, because it’s fast, accurate, and it connects with an app. After reading reviews about other thermometer brands, I found that many parents were not really happy about temperature accuracy. I dug a little deeper and found the Kinsa Quickcare and Smart Ear thermometer. I gravitated towards the smart ear thermometer, because I felt like it would be easier for me to take EJ’s temperature in ear versus using the traditional thermometer, and plus it is doctor recommended.

Personal Kinsa Smart Ear Thermometer Testimony
EJ is going through a teething spell and it has been really tough these last few weeks. With a spike in temperature, increased irritability, and a runny nose, I called his Pediatrician to book an appointment. One of the first questions that the nurse asked was if he currently has a temperature and/or has he had a temperature. I quickly referred to the Kinsa app since all of EJ’s temperatures are recorded there. Temperature checks are a common occurrence in our household, which means there is no way that I would be able to remember EJ’s temperatures. The other great feature about the app is the “Home Care” guidance. Based upon age, temperature, and symptom(s), the app will advise you to either continue with home care, call Dr., call Dr. now, or ER. Having this feature helps guide us in making a sound decision.
The Kinsa App
Below are some of the features of the Kinsa app.
Personalized guidance- as mentioned above, the “home care” guidance feature helps determine your next action (home care, call Dr., call Dr. now, or ER) based upon age, temperature, and symptom(s)
Health log- keep track of healthy history
COVID-19-this is a new feature of the app that gives you symptom and diagnosis support related to COVID-19
Reminders- you can set a reminder for the next temperature check or medication dose
We have been using the Kinsa Smart Ear thermometer since February and I honestly would recommend this thermometer to any parent. You can visit www.kinsahealth.co to learn more about Kinsa.
