Cerebral Cooling (It’s NOT What You Think…)

Seriously

Note the cooling coils on the surgeons head (L)

Editor’s Note:

When I saw this on FB I had to laugh- and just say “Seriously???”.

Of course I am NOT being judgmental or anything… but I guess it begs the question:  pH stat or alpha Stat?

It was too funny of a picture to not put up on ‘Surfers.  I think it is a great reminder that we can still laugh- even in the middle of heart surgery 🙂

Have a great day!

“The new updated version of my ‘Cool Turban’ . The device is used to cool the brain during surgery on the arteries to the brain. The plastic tubings circulate cold water by a special pump. Even a drop of 1 degree in temperature reduces dramatically any chance of brain ischemia. With me is Mr Gurcharan Singh Bedi proprietor and CEO of GS tailors who constructed the contraption . He is a master craftsman.”
