INTRAVASCULAR TEMPERATURE MANAGEMENT (IVTM)

Code:8700-0650-08

The IVM™ technology gets to the core of the temperature issue by managing patient temperature from the inside out.

  • A ZOLL catheter is inserted into the central venous system of a critically ill or surgical patient (femoral, subclavian, or internal jugular insertion).
  • The ZOLL thermogard xp thermal regulation system controls the temperature of the saline circulating through the catheter balloons via remote sensing of the patients temperature.
  • The patient is cooled or warmed as venous blood passes over each balloon – exchanging heat without infusing saline into the patient.
