The Gaymar Medi-Therm II unit provides a means of regulating patient temperature by supplying temperature-controlled water through a connector hose to a Gaymar Hyper/Hypothermia blanket.
The blanket provides an interface for heating or cooling the patient. A patient probe senses patient temperature, which is displayed on the control panel. (See figure 3, p. 8.) The Medi-Therm II machine controls output water temperature by mixing hot and cold water from two reservoirs using hot and cold solenoid valves under microprocessor control. The feedback for control purposes is dependent on the machine’s operating mode. A circulating pump, heater and refrigeration unit (all under microprocessor control) are also utilized. Bimetallic thermostats and associated backup circuitry limit output water temperature independent of the microprocessor.
This unit includes all accessories shown in the picture.
