The device provides a head cooling treatment (The Cool-Cap System sends a steady flow of cool water through a cap placed on an infant's head.), reduces brain damage in newborn babies that experienced an episode of interruption of blood flow and oxygen supply before delivery. The cooling is thought to interfere with the biochemical process that develops, when brain cells are deprived of oxygen.
