... allow for more precise control over the cooling rate and, thus, a prescribed cooling rate is followed when inducing hypothermia. For example, in one study [ 29 ], the cooling rate is purposely kept at only 1.4 °C/h and in a different study [ 30 ] the cooling rate is limited to 0.7 °C/h. The model shows...

... shown that mild hypothermia, reducing tissue temperatures by 2 – 4 ° C , has the potential to save heart tissue that is not adequately perfused with blood. This paper describes the design of a cooling guide catheter that can provide rapid, local cooling to heart tissue during emergency angioplasty...
