Share Article

Global leaders will review current clinical research, best-practice protocols, and ongoing industry collaboration in the adoption of therapeutic hypothermia and other temperature-based treatments.

The 2008 Therapeutic Temperature Management Congress (TTM Congress), an international gathering of leading clinical researchers, physicians, critical-care nurses, and other emergency medicine professionals advancing patient temperature modulation therapies, is set to occur from October 1-4, 2008 in Barcelona, Spain.

Founded to facilitate the transfer of knowledge and experience in the use of therapeutic hypothermia and other temperature-based treatments, the TTM Congress unites all areas of the medical community to help ensure the best possible patient care around the world. Congress participants will examine the science behind the therapies, discuss evidence supporting improved neurological outcomes post-ischemic and post-traumatic injury, as well as collaborate on the most effective protocols used in countries around the globe, including the US, the UK, Germany, Italy, Spain, Sweden, Belgium, The Netherlands, Norway, Denmark, and China.

Special session tracks will be dedicated to neurocritical care, traumatic brain injury, subarachnoid hemorrhage, and sudden cardiac arrest. A growing list of companies -- including Cincinnati Sub-Zero (CSZ), a founding member of the TTM Congress, Alsius, Covidien, Gaymar®, INNERCOOL therapies, and Medivance® -- already have committed to offer unrestricted educational grant support. The congress has been planned and implemented in accordance with the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education through joint sponsorship by the University of Massachusetts Medical School and MEDAVERA, Inc. Credit hours are available for both physicians and nurses.

Mark Beran, Vice President and General Manager of CSZ Medical, a Gold Sponsor of the October event, said, "This year's congress is driven by the exponential level of interest in therapeutic hypothermia, in particular. These treatments are helping to save lives and improve patients' overall quality of life ongoing. It's a bit humbling to be at the forefront of a cooperative effort and then be here to watch it strengthen and gather momentum worldwide. We welcome all who are interested in learning more about the issues and in having the opportunity to interact with the experts."
