About The RhinoChill® IntraNasal Cooling System
The RhinoChill® IntraNasal Cooling System is a new portable and easy-to-use system for inducing therapeutic hypothermia following cardiac arrest. This allows it to be administered initially at the site of the event and then continued in the ambulance, unlike conventional maintenance systems which can only be administered once the patient has reached hospital. It can easily be administered before the return of spontaneous circulation (ROSC), which is important, as it has been shown that the sooner brain temperature can be reduced following a potentially damaging event, the better it can be protected from permanent injury.
