Intravascular temperature management system offers enhanced therapeutic cooling power

Alsius : 25 January, 2008  (New Product)
Alsius has launched the Thermogard XP Intravascular Temperature Management system designed to provide an enhanced level of therapeutic cooling power to clinicians serving critically ill and surgical patients that require central venous access.
Alsius' Intravascular Temperature Management (IVTM) systems provide cooling and warming therapy via a computer-controlled temperature regulation system that connects to Alsius' proprietary heat exchange catheters.

The catheters are inserted into a major vein through a patient's neck or groin, and circulate cool or warm saline in a closed-loop through balloons that surround the catheters. The approach decreases or increases core temperature from the inside of the body out toward the exterior, allowing for significantly more rapid control of a patient's core body temperature, with greater efficiency and precision, compared to conventional external temperature management products such as cooling and warming blankets and ice packs.

The Thermogard XP represents the latest product introduction from Alsius and complements the CoolGard 3000 and Thermogard platforms by providing extra cooling power in situations where it is needed, including difficult-to-cool patients.

'We listened to the clinicians we work with and are pleased to offer the Thermogard XP as a solution for the most challenging temperature management scenarios,' said Bill Worthen, president and chief executive officer of Alsius. 'Alsius continues to serve the evolving needs of its neurosurgery, cardiac surgery, critical care, and emergency medicine customers and their patients with ongoing innovations and investment in research and development to improve heat exchange performance.'
