Samaritan Auxiliary Enables
Posted: November 22, 2014
The Samaritan Auxiliary purchased state-of-the art medical equipment
called the Arctic Sun Temperature Management System for Samaritan
Medical Center, with monies raised from their signature event, One
Night, One Diamond, held in March of 2014 - a donation of $42,563
was made to purchase this equipment. The Arctic Sun has been
utilized in Samaritan Medical Center’s Emergency Department (ED) and
Intensive Care Unit (ICU) since 2010, but due to the frequency of
use, SMC identified the need for a second unit and the Auxiliary was
pleased to fund this initiative.
The Arctic Sun is a non-invasive temperature management system
which can cool the body’s core temperature to as low as 33 degrees.
In the case of a cardiac arrest or stroke, lowering the body
temperature can help to slow the metabolism which leads to positive
outcomes and less risk of brain injury. The equipment circulates
chilled water through pads that are adhered to the patient’s skin.
The Samaritan Auxiliary is pleased to be able to support our
patients with life-saving equipment. In the right-hand picture is
Dr. David Rechlin (Pulmonology Associates), Renee Waterbury
(Samaritan Auxiliary Board President) and Mr. Tom Carman (Samaritan
President & CEO). The center picture is Dr. Maja Lundborg-Gray
(North Country Emergency Medical Consultants), Kim Smith (Nurse
Manager of the ICU) and Jane Schmitt (Volunteer Services) and the
