Thermal Insulation Pads, Cardiac Surgery
Definition : Pads designed to provide thermal insulation to the myocardium during surgery. These pads are usually thin and flexible, specially shaped plastic (e.g., polyethylene foam) devices; they may include notches for the vena cava and pulmonary arteries. Cardiac insulation pads reduce undesired re-warming of the myocardium, helping in the protection of adjacent tissues during open-heart surgery procedures.
