New Intra-Nasal Cooling System May Improve Survival When Initiated Soon After Cardiac Arrest

 

SAN DIEGO, California, August 16, 2010 /PRNewswire/ -- A new portable system which cools the brain via the nasal cavity may improve survival following cardiac arrest compared with standard care procedures, particularly when CPR and cooling are initiated early. Results from a recent study showed that the RhinoChill(TM) Intra-Nasal Cooling System enabled brain temperature to reach target several hours earlier than patients cooled in the emergency room. It is widely recognized that the sooner brain temperature can be reduced, the better the chances of minimizing long-term damage.

The study, published online in the prestigious peer-reviewed journal Circulation, is the first to evaluate cooling using this system in a randomized protocol conducted in the field and during the arrest. The Pre-Resuscitation Intra-Nasal Cooling Effectiveness (PRINCE) study involved 200 patients with witnessed cardiac arrest across 15 locations in Belgium, Germany, Italy, Czech Republic and Sweden, where cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) had been initiated within 20 minutes of collapse. Patients were randomized to either intra-nasal cooling with RhinoChill along with standard advanced cardiac life support (ACLS) care or ACLS alone until they were either resuscitated or reached hospital, at which stage patients in both groups were cooled.

Results showed that the target tympanic temperature of 34 degreesC, used as an approximation of brain temperature, was reached three hours earlie
