Abstract

Animal behaviors, tissue functions, and cell death depend greatly on their heat transfer and temperature. For example, cold temperatures can significantly alter neuronal signal transmission, inflammation, and immune activities. Whereas quantitative heating methods such as LASER are readily available for clinical purposes, understanding of cooling effects on various biological processes is largely limited, mainly due to the absence of precision tissue cooling technology.
In my presentation, I will briefly introduce heat processes in soft materials, and expand my topic to the effects of cooling on animal behaviors as well as tissue activities in human. Both the animal and clinical data clearly suggest that sufficient level of anesthesia can be achieved with a unique precision cooling technology without any adverse effects. In particular, clinical benefits of the precision tissue cooling technology for rapid anesthesia for intravitreal injections will be discussed.
