Today, major medical societies recommend temperature management as the standard of care therapy for many critically ill or surgical patients. Visit the reference section to review a selection of recent publications that address the use of temperature management.

Traditional external temperature management methods, such as cooling and warming blankets, gel pads or ice packs remain common in ICU's, burn centers, emergency deparments and surgical suites. However, nurses and physicians recognize the limitations of external methods in that they are clinically inefficient, labor intensive and limit access to critically ill patients. ZOLL's Intravascular Temperature Management (IVTMT) system is a safe and effective method for controlling core body temperature. Superior, in fact, to other cooling methods for achieving and maintaining target temperature.1
