Medical equipment for induced hyperthermia Ptich-M


The equipment is intended for multicomponent treatment of common and generalized forms of malignant tumors by whole-body hyperthermia sessions.
The essence of the therapeutic technique consists in conducting a session (2-3 hours) of gradual heating of a patient's body to critical temperatures (40-43°C) and simultaneous exposure to a certain chemotherapy complex under general anesthesia.


Medical equipment PTICH-M provides:
  • heating of the patient’s body due to the impact of high-frequency electromagnetic energy (13.56 MHz);
  • reliable and accurate control of the temperature profile of the procedure;
  • forced thermohydraulic cooling of the most critical areas of the patient's body (head, spinal cord).
A built-in and a remote computers form a dual-circuit hardware-software control system that ensures:
  • Reliable automatic and manual control of all modes of the medical equipment;
  • Continuous indication of parameters relevant for medical staff;
  • Generation and documentation of detailed reports on carried out procedures.
Advantages of chemotherapy held in whole-body hyperthermia conditions:
  • Destruction of tumor cells by heating in indicated temperature ranges;
  • Enhancement of the antitumor effect and reduction of nephrotoxicity, cardiotoxicity and hepatotoxicity of chemotherapy agents;
  • Whole-body hyperthermia is the method to choose when planning neoadjuvant chemotherapy in patients with disseminated tumors (colorectal cancer, etc.);
  • In patients with regional cancer, especially breast cancer, sarcoma, ovarian and renal carcinoma, etc., 1-2 sessions of whole-body hyperthermia allow to reduce their size and conduct surgery.
