Advanced Cooling Therapy, LLC, is developing improved methods to control patient temperature in order to more effectively implement mild therapeutic hypothermia, maintain operative normothermia, and treat fever. Our revolutionary technology offers a novel approach to patient temperature management that reduces risk, increases efficiency, and lowers costs while dramatically improving patient outcomes.
Mild therapeutic hypothermia is the intentional reduction of a patient's body temperature by 4°C for 24 hours after resuscitation from cardiac arrest. Although this therapy nearly doubles the chances of the patient surviving and having a good neurological outcome, use of this life saving therapy remains low.
Maintenance of a patient’s normal body temperature is extremely important while undergoing surgical procedures in the operating room in order to reduce blood loss, transfusion requirements, infections, length of stay, and mortality. Nevertheless, despite efforts to date, the incidence of inadvertent perioperative hypothermia is still high.
Control of fever in the intensive care unit correlates with improved outcomes and a reduced risk of death; however, conventional means of treating fever in many intensive care unit patients are not very effective.
The plaform technology being developed by Advanced Cooling Therapy, LLC provides an innovative method to cool or warm patients, and also enables a number of additional clinical uses, including the incorporation of esophageal manometry to guide ventilator management, gastric tonometry to diagnose abdominal compartment syndrome, pH measurements, parenteral medication administration, and many others.
Advanced Cooling Therapy, LLC, is pioneering a novel approach to patient temperature control that solves the problems of existing methods, offering physicians a safe, efficient, and easy to use device to save the lives of patients.
