C Change Surgi Slush™

Surgical teams use sterile slush therapeutically during complex surgical procedures to reduce an organ’s need for oxygen, slow cellular damage and provide doctors more time for treatment. The SurgiSLUSH™ system lowers costs, simplifies slush production, saves space and reduces the risk of unintended contamination. SurgiSLUSH™ users reduce direct costs by producing soft, smooth sterile slush inside C Change Surgical’s innovative, re-sterilizable slush containers. The re-sterilizable containers save money whenever slush must be on hand. SurgiSlush™ simplifies slush production and increases sterile field efficiency by moving slush out of the sterile field. Just insert re-usable bottles, press a button and perfect slush is ready when needed. SurgiSLUSH™ units save space and are mobile. SurgiSLUSH™ users reduce the risks of unintended contaminations by eliminating the use of vulnerable slush drapes.
