The Esophageal Cooling Device, developed by Advanced Cooling Therapy, brings a revolutionary approach to temperature management.

The ECD is designed to modulate and control patient temperature when clinically indicated through a single use, fully-enclosed triple lumen system that is inserted into the esophagus. Two lumens attach to existing temperature modulation equipment while a third lumen simultaneously allows gastric decompression and drainage.

The ECD can be rapidly inserted by most trained health care professionals, in similar fashion to an orogastric tube, and can be used to control patient temperature in the operating room, recovery room, emergency room, or ICU.

No other product on the market is approved to use the esophageal environment for whole-body temperature modulation. Distilled water circulates within the ECD just like a water blanket.
