Top Heart Programs Choose Safety of Medivance's Non-Invasive Arctic Sun(R) for Therapeutic Hypothermia

Best hospitals adhere to trend in medicine favoring non-invasive interventions that minimize needless complications

LOUISVILLE, Colo., Dec. 9 /PRNewswire/ -- The nation's top-rated heart programs continue to favor the non-invasive, safe and technologically advanced Arctic Sun Temperature Management System from Medivance for cooling critically ill patients.

Cooling comatose cardiac arrest survivors is an evidence-based standard of care recommended by the American Heart Association.

"Therapeutic hypothermia is the single most effective intervention to improve neurologic outcome after out-of-hospital cardiac arrest," says Brian O'Neil, MD, Emergency Department Research Director at Beaumont Hospital in Royal Oak, Michigan, ranked among the nation's top 15 heart programs.

The preference for the Arctic Sun is in keeping with the strong trend in medicine toward least invasive methods. Consequently, more than half of the 50 heart programs ranked best in the nation by U.S. News & World Report now use the Arctic Sun to quickly induce hypothermia and then slowly rewarm their critically ill patients. In the topmost ranks, 80 percent of the 20 top hospitals prefer the safety and precision of Medivance's non-invasive device.

"We use the Arctic Sun for two reasons. It's non-invasive, and it's extremely reliable for maintaining temperature within the narrow range required for maximum therapeutic benefit," Dr. O'Neil says.

The non-invasive Arctic Sun System avoids the unnecessary risks associated with invasive cooling catheters. And because nurses initiate the therapy, cooling
