    • Quantum Perfusion for the OR:

      The flexible range of Quantum Perfusion Technologies combined with vertical and horizontal space frame solutions is a unique combination of world leading Perfusion Technologies and Integrated Patient Safety Systems designed to support a wide range of clinical therapies that use Extracorporeal Circulation for patient life-support within the Operating Room.

      Heater-Cooler (Mr. Frosty):

      A powerful and revolutionary Heater-Cooler technology that eliminates the growth environment for the Mycobacterium Chimaera bacteria, eliminates the disruption of the Operating Room based laminar flow systems and eliminates the time-consuming need for hazardous cleaning procedures.

    • Quantum Perfusion for the ICUs:

      The flexible range of Quantum Perfusion Technologies have been developed by Spectrum Medical to support a wide range clinical therapies in the ICU and emergency procedures in the Cath-Lab.  Platform flexibility combined with superior performance and the ultimate systems integration with Quantum Informatics delivers the highest quality of care and patient safety.

      Quantum Perfusion for Transport:

      The use of Carbon Fibre offers significant weight savings when compared to existing transport platforms without sacrificing overall system strength when used in rugged environments.  The Melbourne Transport Frame integrates with various Quantum Perfusion Modules and makes use of a range of Quantum Sterile Technologies and when in the ICU the overall system can “dock” with Toronto ICU system as well as Quantum Informatics.

Quantum Heater-Cooler First Clinical Use

February 13 2020

Cardiac History was made today at the Bristol Royal Infirmary (UK).  For the first time ever in Cardiopulmonary Bypass, patient thermal regulation was conducted with Spectrum Medical’s Mr Frosty Glycol-based thermal technology that eliminates the use of water. Water is a recognised growth environment for the NTM Chimera bacteria as well as other potential pathogens. 

Mr Frosty is a System consisting of the Heater-Cooler unit, the Charging System, the Bacteriostatic Fluid and a supporting range of Sterile Heat Exchangers. Development has taken four very intense years, and stand as a testament to Spectrum Medical’s commitment to maximising both patient and clinician safety in the high acuity ECLS space.  In comparison, other providers offered nothing new other than the hazardous use of cleaning chemicals with ever-increasing levels of toxicity.

Mr Will Lansdown, Deputy Head of Perfusion – Bristol Royal Infirmary, said it was wonderful to be able to conduct extracorporeal support during cardiac surgery knowing that the risk to patient and clinicians of being infected by NTM Chimera had been eliminated. Using Mr Frosty was easy, and the noise levels were non-existent.

Steve Turner said there is no end to this journey into the demanding and fascinating world of ECLS.
