CAERvest® utilises a special blend of endothermic chemicals designed to effectively reduce core body temperature without causing skin damage. The product reaches and maintains temperatures far lower than commonly available retail instant ice packs (see here for temperature profile comparison). Additionally, the polymers selected for the device have been designed to conform to the patient’s body and maximise heat transfer. Further proprietary design modifications ensure homogeneity of cooling, minimise fluid inertia and maximise patient comfort.
The chemicals contained in the product are non-hazardous and of low ecological concern in the unlikely event of escape or following incorrect disposal. Despite this, operators should always take care to read and follow the Instructions for Use for best results.
