About Alsius IVTM(TM)

Alsius IVTM consists of the CoolGard 3000(R), Thermogard(TM) and Thermogard XP(TM) systems and a family of single-use catheters, including the Cool Line(R), Icy(R), Fortius(R) and Quattro(TM) 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. This 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,
