Who We Are

Advanced Cooling Therapy develops products that provide an innovative method for cooling or warming patients. The ECD is a single use, fully-enclosed triple lumen system that is inserted into the esophagus to modulate and control patient temperature when clinically indicated. Power for cooling or warming is supplied by an external heat exchange unit typically used for water blankets.

The Importance of Temperature Management

Temperature management refers to a group of clinical procedures that actively modulate or control a patient’s core temperature. Typically temperature management is used to maintain normothermia during surgery, reduce fever, or induce therapeutic hypothermia. Clinical research, especially in the last decade, has linked unstable core temperature during treatment with critical health outcomes, including: mortality, cognitive function, myocardial complications, and infection.

About the ECD

The ECD was invented by an Emergency Room physician who was not satisfied with the available temperature management products. He designed the ECD to be efficient, unobtrusive, and easy to place by a range of clinical providers. The ECD is inserted into the esophagus, where it leverages conduction and convection to modulate and control patient temperature. The triple lumen design allows simultaneous temperature modulation and gastric decompression. Watch this short video demonstration on ECD placement.
