Olympic Cool-Cap System

The Olympic Cool-Cap System is the only FDA approved device for the treatment of hypoxic-ischemic encephalopathy (HIE) in term infants. It works by utilizing a unique cooling cap to provide selective brain cooling while maintaining core temperature at safe levels through the use of a radiant warmer.

Studies have shown that if used in the first six hours of life, the system can prevent or significantly reduce the severity of neurologic injury associated with HIE.
