Title (EN) SYSTEM AND METHOD FOR COOLING INTERNAL TISSUE
(FR) SYSTEME ET PROCEDE POUR REFROIDIR UN TISSU INTERNE
Abstract:
(EN) A system, device and method for thermally affecting tissue are provided. The system includes a pump/controller unit (102) having a pump (112) for pumping a thermally conductive fluid through the system, a fluid chiller (116) for thermally treating the conductive fluid, a controller circuitry (118) for measuring and controlling the temperature of the conductive fluid, and a fluid circulation path having an extension tubing set (106) for circulating the thermally conductive fluid, a thermal application device (110) having at least one flow passage that is in fluid communication with the tubing set, a thermal exchanger element (108) in fluid communication with the tubing set that interfaces with the fluid chiller, where the tubing set operably interfaces with a pump to enable the pump to circulate a thermally conductive fluid through a fluid circulation path. The fluid circulation path may have various sensors providing temperature (142, 144) and pressure (422, 424, 426) readings to the pump/controller unit.
(FR) L'invention concerne un système, un dispositif et un procédé permettant de produire un effet thermique sur un tissu. Le système comprend une unité pompe/régulation qui comporte une pompe pour pomper un fluide thermiquement conducteur dans le système, un refroidisseur de fluide pour traiter thermiquement le fluide conducteur, un circuit de régulation pour mesurer et régler la température du fluide conducteur, un circuit de fluide comportant un ensemble tubage pour faire circuler ledit fluide, un applicateur thermique comportant au moins un passage en communication fluidique avec l'ensemble tubage, et un élément échangeur thermique en communication fluidique avec l'ensemble tubage coopérant avec le refroidisseur de fluide. L'ensemble tubage est relié de façon opérationnelle à une pompe pour faire circuler le fluide thermiquement conducteur dans le circuit de fluide. Le circuit de fluide peut comporter divers détecteurs qui transmettent des mesures de température et de pression à l'unité pompe/régulation.
