Title (EN) PRIMARY HEAT EXCHANGER FOR PATIENT TEMPERATURE CONTROL
(FR) ECHANGEUR THERMIQUE PRINCIPAL POUR LE CONTROLE DE LA TEMPERATURE DE PATIENT
Abstract:
(EN) A system for exchanging heat with primary coolant flowing through an intravascular catheter (12) or externally-applied pad (18) to warm or cool a patient. A secondary heat transfer element (24) can be engaged with a primary heat transfer element (22) and is not grounded when the primary heat transfer element (22) is fully engaged with the secondary heat transfer element (24) during operation. In contrast, the secondary heat transfer element (24) is grounded when the primary heat transfer element (22) is at a predetermined disengaged position relative to the secondary heat transfer element (24).
(FR) La présente invention a trait à un échangeur thermique avec un fluide caloporteur principal circulant à travers un cathéter intravasculaire (12) ou une compresse d'application externe (18) pour réchauffer ou refroidir un patient. Un élément de transfert thermique secondaire (24) peut être engagé avec l'élément de transfert thermique principal (22) et n'est pas mis à la terre lorsque l'élément de transfert thermique principal (22) est entièrement engagé avec l'élément de transfert thermique secondaire (24) en fonctionnement. Au contraire, l'élément thermique secondaire (24) est mis à la terre lorsque l'élément de transfert thermique principal (22) est dans une position dégagée par rapport à l'élément de transfert thermique secondaire (24).
