(EN) METHOD AND APPARATUS FOR INDUCING THERAPEUTIC HYPOTHERMIA
(FR) PROCÉDÉ ET APPAREIL D'INDUCTION D'HYPOTHERMIE THÉRAPEUTIQUE
Abstract
(EN)
Methods and apparatus for delivering therapeutic hypothermia to a patient are provided which may include any number of features. One feature is a hypothermia system comprising a fluid reservoir, a heat exchanger assembly, a catheter in fluid communication with the fluid reservoir, and a pump system configured to infuse hypothermic fluid into a patient cavity and extract hypothermic fluid from the patient cavity. The hypothermia system can infuse and extract fluid automatically from the patient cavity. In one embodiment, the patient cavity is a peritoneal cavity. A safe access device to gain access to the patient cavity is also provided.

La présente invention concerne des procédés et un appareil permettant d'induire une hypothermie thérapeutique chez un patient, lesdits procédés et appareil pouvant comprendre un certain nombre de caractéristiques. Une caractéristique est un système d'hypothermie comprenant un réservoir de fluide, un ensemble échangeur thermique, un cathéter en communication fluidique avec le réservoir de fluide et un système de pompe conçu pour perfuser et extraire du fluide automatiquement à partir de la cavité du patient. Dans un mode de réalisation, la cavité du patient est une cavité péritonéale. L'invention concerne également un dispositif d'accès sécurisé permettant d'accéder à la cavité du patient.
