Arctic Sun Again Preferred Choice of Top-Ranked U.S. Hospitals for Therapeutic Temperature Management
Date:9/9/2009

LOUISVILLE, Colo., Sept. 9 /PRNewswire/ -- The number of Arctic Sun(R) users among hospitals ranked top 20 jumped to 90 percent this year from 72 percent last year, Medivance announced today. All top 10 "best hospitals" prefer the ease and safety of its advanced non-invasive method for rapid, controlled temperature reduction followed by slow rewarming.

The potential rewards of therapeutic temperature management -- the satisfaction of seeing critically ill patients return to their previous lives by protecting them from brain damage -- are so great that 90 percent of U.S. hospitals ranked the nation's best by US News and World Report cool patients therapeutically with the Arctic Sun.

"Therapeutic temperature management is here to stay. It gives patients the best chance of full recovery," said Daniel L. Herr, MD, editor of the July 2009 Critical Care Medicine journal supplement on the topic. Washington Hospital Center, where he is Medical Director of the Surgical Intensive Care Unit, ranked among the top 20 heart programs.

"Technological advances in critical care medicine are always aiming at improving outcomes with minimum risk. Such balance is well demonstrated with the institution of temperature modulation (hypothermia) following cardiac arrest as well as other paradigms of acute brain injury," said J. Ricardo Carhuapoma, MD, of the Division of Neurosciences Critical Care at Johns Hopkins Hospital, which ranked top overall and second in neurology.

"The use of Medivance's Arctic Sun has provided the field of Neurosciences Critical Care with a powerful tool to help with the treatment of complex and highly vulnerable patients," he added.
