INTRAVASCULAR TEMPERATURE MANAGEMENT (IVTM)
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.
