Baptist Beaumont Hospital is proud to announce the introduction of the Medivance’s cooling technology – hailed as a medical breakthrough by the Wall Street Journal’s Technology Innovation Awards and the Frost & Sullivan Product Differentiation Innovation Award for Advancing the European Therapeutic Hypothermia Devices Market. The Arctic Sun therapeutic temperature management device being initiated at Baptist Beaumont Hospital, the only one in Southeast Texas, is the only really precise non-invasive patient cooling device and is used at more than 70 percent of the nation’s top hospitals, and 80 percent of the top heart programs. Per AHA guidelines, cooling is a standard of care post-cardiac arrest. It is among the newest, most promising treatments available. With the recognition by the Society of Chest Pain Centers as the 365th accredited Chest Pain Center in the nation along with the Arctic Sun management device, we are assuring the best cardiac care to Southeast Texas.
Non-invasive cooling with the Arctic Sun is not only fast and efficient in reducing core body temperature, but safe – it does not subject patients to the unnecessary risk of DVTs, infection or bleeding prevalent with catheter-based cooling technologies in use at some other hospitals. Typically, critically ill patients who fit the criteria are cooled for 24 hours.
The Artic Sun therapeutic hypothermia treatment is emerging as a new treatment with great promise. We are proud to introduce this innovative new treatment to our Emergency Department.
