A unique method, cooling through the nasal cavities
TEQCool’s system is an effective aid, specifically designed to maintain normothermia (normal body temperature) and prevent fever in cardiac arrest patients by regulating the temperature of a fluid circulating to and from balloon catheters in the cardiac arrest patient’s nasal cavities.
The physiological proximity of the nasal cavity to the brain is considered to be an advantage when using this method. Healthcare professionals can freely examine and care for other parts of the body, including performing defibrillation or cardiac compressions.
TEQCool’s system continuously regulates the temperature to maintain an as even temperature as possible and reduces the risk for fever peaks.
