Easy, rapid and precise temperature control are essential requirements for a hypo-/hyperthermia unit for use during extracorporeal circulation. Getinge’s HCU 40 combines the latest proven technology with outstanding performance and unique usability.
The HCU 40 from Maquet includes two independent water circuits. The first circuit can supply temperature controlled water to the oxygenator blood heat exchanger and to warming/ cooling blankets. The second circuit provides temperature controlled water to the cardioplegia heat exchanger.
The water tank for the patient and cardioplegia circuits is divided into two parts to ensure quick temperature adjustments at the outlets. In addition, it shines with exceptional cooling capacity through its fast ice-building technique using highly effective cooling plates and a powerful compressor. The device is equipped with extremely large capacity heaters and intelligent electronic management of the heating and cooling components.
