Qool Therapeutics raises $8m to support temp management device

Early stage med device developer Qool Therapeutics said today it raised $8 million in a Series A-1 round to support development and trials of its Qool device designed for targeted temperature management and exercise recovery. Joining the funding round was Zhongji Holdings and Join Medical Technology, Tampcap LLC, BrilliMedical International, BioPacific Investors, Western Technology Investment and FundRx, the Silicon Valley-based company said. Qool Therapeutics said that in addition to the funding, it has also received an award from the US Department of Defense’s Defense Innovation unit Experimental organization. The company’s Qool device is designed for targeted temperature management and exercise recovery and is intended for use with multiple conditions. Those conditions include cardiac arrest, acute myocardial infarction, stroke, traumatic brain injury, cardiogenic shock, status epilepticus, encephalitis, meningitis, burns, heat stroke, hyperthermia and sepsis and as a protective adjunct for vascular surgery. The system is comprised of a control unit and delivery tube designed to deliver frozen saline particles to the lungs, using the large surface area of the lungs to direct blood flow to the heart and brain and cool the body, the company said. “By adding these premier new investors to the company, we can quickly accelerate our product development efforts. Our technology is designed to be non-invasive, rapid, and compatible with the flow of patient care, ...

The objective of this study was to compare the use of pulmonary regurgitation volume (PRV) or indexed PRV (PRVi) with that of pulmonary regurgitation fraction (PRF) in the assessment of patients with pulmonary regurgitation (PR) undergoing cardiac magnetic resonance (CMR) imaging. Materials and Methods: CMR of 176 patients with PR were retrospectively evaluated. Their right ventricular diastolic (end-diastolic volume index [EDVi]) and systolic (end-systolic volume index) volume indexes, stroke volume, and ejection fraction were obtained from cine CMR sequences, whereas phase-contrast flow sequences were analyzed to obta...

Opportunistic infections are those that are either more frequent or more severe as a result of the patient’s immunosuppressed condition. Opportunistic infections are, of course, the distinguishing feature of HIV infection, and they can be the cause of serious morbidity and even mortality. Some opportunistic infections can be prevented by vaccination, for example, pneumococcal infection, meningococcal infection, influenza, hepatitis A and B, and varicella. Other major opportunistic infections require prophylactic antibiotics or antiviral medications. In obstetric patients, pneumocystis infections and toxoplasmosis are...
