The working of a cooling machine in cardiac surgery
A Cardiac Surgery refers to a medical procedure that primarily deals with the handling and treatment of the heart. It is a critical medical procedure that incorporates heavy medical machinery, and the most common machine that is used here is called the ‘Heater-Cooler Machine’ also known as a ‘Hyper-Hypothermia Unit’. It is a high-in-demand cardiac surgery machine in India and overseas as well. The idea behind using this machine is to improve the medical care and patient outcomes during a cardiac surgery. It is used to keep the blood flowing at a specific needed temperature to the various organs of the body. It regulates the temperature of the blood flowing in the patient’s body during the procedure. There can be two scenarios here- in certain cases the Hyper-Hypothermia unit may be used to cool down the body temperature and in some instances it may be used to heat up the body temperature. It is essential to control the temperature of the patient’s body during a cardiac surgery in order to protect it from getting infected. For example- a bacteria called Mycobacterium Chimaera is commonly known to infect bodies during cardiac and vascular surgeries, and the Cardiac Surgery Machine helps in managing this.
Let us understand the cooling function of the Hyper-hypothermia unit. The fast cooling machine functionality of the Hyper-Hypothermia unit enables to cool the patient’s body temperature while being operated. The cooling feature of the machine allows the heart to sustain itself during longer surgical procedures as the need for oxygen is reduced here. Also, during cardiothoracic surgeries, there’s a possibility that a patient’s body temperature might get too high and in this medical situation referred to as ‘Hyperthermia’, a fast cooling machine will be put to use. It will reduce the high temperature and help stabilise the patient’s body.
The heater-cooler machine is an integral part of the cardiac treatments and therefore, a high-quality hyper-hypothermia unit must be included in every clinical facility’s cardiac department.
