About Medivance's Arctic Sun

The non-invasive Arctic Sun Temperature Management System precisely monitors and maintains core body temperature in a therapeutic range, between 32 degrees and 38.5 degrees Celsius (approximately 89.6 degrees to 101.3 degrees Fahrenheit) with the potential to minimize damage to the heart and brain.
