In Cardiac Arrest Patients, Time is Brain.Emergency Medical Responders Can Initiate Immediate Pre-Hospital Cooling Aligned with AHA Guidelines.
Research demonstrates that time to targeted temperature does matter to improve outcomes in cardiac arrest. Cryo Cooling Packs allow first responders to initiate medical grade cooling in seconds and maintain it throughout transport, serving as the Bridge to Targeted Temperature Management (TTM) in the hospital. Cryo Cooling Packs are cost-effective, non-invasive, and simple to use. Cryo is a safe, but equivalent cooling alternative to chilled saline.
Use Cryo Cooling Packs as the Bridge to Targeted Temperature Management.Early cooling and consistent Targeted Temperature Management is associated with increased survival and neuroprotective benefits. Now EMT/EMS personnel can initiate medical grade cooling with those suffering from sudden cardiac arrest.
“We believe that Cryothermic Cooling Pack offers a simple and cost-effective substitute to chilled saline.”

Start cooling immediately with non-invasive Cryo cooling packs. Lowers body temperature up to 3°C in 20 minutes. Provides cooling along the entire patient care path from Prehospital Scene…to the Emergency Department…to the Cath Lab…and ICU.
The Cryo Cooling System – Simple, Fast & Effective.
Demonstrated To Lower Body Temperature up to 3°C in 20 minutes!
So Simple to Apply. So Fast to Cool.

Cryo is the cost-effective bridge to TTM.
Over 5000 TTM studies exist (including multiple randomized controlled trials, demonstrating decreased mortality and improved neurological outcome when the time to target temperature is maximized. The TTM consensus is that cooling should begin as soon as possible, and target temperature must be reached within 4 hours and maintained for 24-48 hours. Blanket and catheter methods of TTM have proven effective in hospital settings when the TTM goal is reached within 4 hours.
“The simplicity of Cryo Cooling allows nurses to quickly initiate or continue cooling patients while the Cath Lab is activated or while the doctor places the cooling catheter. Cryo is very cost-effective and allows us to focus on the patient during emergency situations in the ED”
The Cryo Cooling System was designed to be the Bridge to TTM for cardiac arrest patients.
The Cryo Element cools a patient non-invasively via the carotid triangle region on the neck, where the body’s entire blood supply passes every 3.5 minutes. Use Cryo Cooling Elements to initiate simple, immediate cooling, changing as needed every 20-40 minutes, and cardiac arrest patients can enjoy a comfortable, simple cooling solution – without discomfort, complications or shivering.

The Case for Cooling following Cardiac Arrest
Evidence Supports Early Cooling as an Alternative to Saline for Sudden Cardiac Arrest
AMERICAN HEART ASSOCIATION GUIDELINES 2015
The AHA Task Force recommends targeted temperature management for adults with out-of-hospital cardiac arrest with an initial shockable rhythm at a constant temperature between 32°C and 36°C for at least 24 hours. Similar suggestions are made for out-of-hospital cardiac arrest with a nonshockable rhythm and in-hospital cardiac arrest. The Task Force recommends against prehospital cooling with rapid infusion of large volumes of cold intravenous fluid.3

Not all cooling packs are created equal.

HOW THE CRYOTHERMIC SYSTEM CAN SERVE AS THE BRIDGE TO TTM
“Also, the patients do not shiver, which is a major problem with some of the temperature management devices available. This not only saves us on the cost of the cooling device but also on the multiple medications that are no longer needed for shiver control. “
