Temperature Control in Critically Ill Patients with a Novel Esophageal Cooling Device: a Case Series BMC Anesthesiology. | Pubmed ID: 26481105 Mild hypothermia and fever control have been shown to improve neurological outcomes post cardiac arrest. Common methods to induce hypothermia include body surface cooling and intravascular cooling; however, a new approach using an esophageal cooling catheter has recently become available.
The Esophageal Cooling Device: A New Temperature Control Tool In the Intensivist's Arsenal Heart & Lung : the Journal of Critical Care. May - Jun, 2017 | Pubmed ID: 28410771 Therapeutic hypothermia has been demonstrated to improve neurological outcome in comatose survivors of cardiac arrest. Current temperature control modalities however, have several limitations. Exploring innovative methods of temperature management has become a necessity.
