Advanced Cooling Therapy Announces Name Change

Advanced Cooling Therapy is changing its corporate name to Attune Medical. The name change reflects the company’s commitment to temperature management therapy in all clinical contexts and better represents the corporate culture of remaining attuned to clinical needs, patient safety and the state of science.

Over 20 million patients in the United States experience a clinical event that warrants active temperature management each year, but researchers estimate that less than 10 percent receive the appropriate therapy, and that part of this discrepancy is attributed to
work-flow challenges.

Attune Medical’s proprietary technology simplifies access to the patient’s core and allows providers to control patient temperature, whether warming or cooling, through the esophagus when clinically indicated. This prompted the renaming of Attune Medical’s primary device, the Esophageal Cooling Device (ECD) to EnsoETM, reflecting the product’s simplicity and the broader focus on Esophageal Temperature Management. The EnsoETM is designed to modulate and control patient temperature through a single use, fully enclosed triple lumen system that is inserted into the esophagus. Two lumens attach to an external heat exchange unit while a third, independent, lumen simultaneously allows gastric decompression and drainage. The EnsoETM can be rapidly placed by most trained health care professionals, in similar fashion to a standard gastric tube, and can be used to control patient temperature in the operating room, recovery room, emergency room or intensive care unit. No other products on the market are approved to use the esophageal environment for whole-body temperature modulation.
