Dot Medical Ltd, the Macclesfield based medical technology company has a revolutionary non-invasive product designed to minimise the effects of heart attacks, strokes and neural head injuries – which works by cooling patients. The therapy is known as Therapeutic Hypothermia and the product is called the Arctic Sun. This unique product can also be used for sun stroke victims.

The Arctic Sun is a cooling system that circulates constantly regulated cool water through special pads placed on the patients’ skin. This allows hospital staff to rapidly and accurately cool body temperature down to about 33.C. (The body’s normal temperature is 37.C). The Arctic Sun is also a closed cooling system under negative pressure so the patient does not come into contact with the water, only the cooling effects of it.

Therapeutic Hypothermia is now advocated in the latest Resuscitation Guidelines as it has been found that rapidly cooling patients immediately following a heart attack, stroke or head injury can not only minimise brain or neurological trauma but also improve survival after resuscitation.

Company Development Manager, Denise Rankin, commented, ‘ The Arctic Sun cooling pads are unique, very effective and in line with the latest resuscitation guidelines – I would definitely want my family or myself to be cooled by the Arctic Sun pads in the event of a heart attack or car accident. They should be available in all Accident and Emergency Departments as well as Intensive Care Units’.
