The Hyperthermia Pump™ is used in therapeutic procedures to raise the temperature of the thoracic or peritoneal cavity to the desired target temperature by continuously lavaging the cavity with warmed sterile solution. The warm sterile solution is pumped into a body cavity, withdrawn, reheated, and recirculated back to the body for a period of time specified by the physician. The system monitors sterile solution temperature, line pressure, and air in the fluid path to ensure safe operation and alarms at all unsafe conditions. Four sterile temperature probes, located within the sterile field by a physician, monitor patient cavity temperature.
