Thermogard XP(TM) Studies to Be Presented at American Society of Anesthesiologists Annual Meeting
Date:10/20/2008

nued Dr. Blitz. "On the other hand, patients who experience a stroke or other neurological injury during surgery might actually benefit by being cooled down for a period of time after the surgery. Therefore, modulating temperature becomes a very important tool in the physician's armamentarium. The cases being presented at the ASA underscore the utility of temperature management for these situations."

Various factors contribute to hypothermia during surgery, including the type of surgical procedure, the type of anesthesia, the temperature of the operating room and the infusion of blood or other cold fluids. A patient's temperature can drop as much as 1 - 3 degrees F during the first 30 minutes after anesthesia is administered, and sometimes more body heat can be lost during the surgery, which can lead to serious complications including wound infections, blood loss, cardiac arrhythmias and heart damage.

Most methods of patient re-warming are imprecise, fail to warm the patient quickly enough or are not practical due to the type of surgery. The Alsius IVTM system is ideal for these circumstances since it does not interfere with the operating field and will precisely and efficiently regulate the patient's temperature.

Alsius IVTM(TM)

Alsius IVTM technology provides cooling and warming therapy via a computer-controlled temperature regulation system that connects to Alsius' proprietary heat exchange catheters. The catheters are inserted into a patient's subclavian, jugular or femoral vein, and circulate cool or warm saline through balloons that surround the catheter. 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, compared to conventional external temperature management products such as cooling and warming blankets and ice packs.
