Available Modules for MCH-1000(i)

Refrigeration Module  |  MCH-10RMS

Tired of hauling ice buckets to the OR? The CardioQuip Refrigeration Module replaces the lid on the MCH-1000(i) with an enclosed condensing unit that forms a block of ice in the tank. With room-temperature water, the Refrigeration Module will chill the water to 3°C in about one hour, and begin to form ice in about 90 minutes.  Click here for a timelapse video.


Cardioplegia Shared Channel (CSC) Module |  MCH-10CSC

CardioQuip developed the dual-shared channel concept to add useful functionality to the MCH-1000(i) without dual-channel drawbacks. 

  • Adds a second channel

  • Delivers cold water from cold water tank or temperature controlled water from main circuit.

  • Eliminates need for additional unit

Blanket Connection Module

Working with a patient blanket? Add the Blanket Connection Module to your MCH-1000(i) to provide external warming or cooling. Applications include prevention and treatment of hypothermia, fever reduction, and general patient comfort. 

Dripless Anti-Microbial (DAM) Hose Kit  |  MCH-10DAM

In today's perfusion climate, maintaining water quality in the OR is critical. We introduced the Dripless Anti-Microbial Hose Kit to offer a clean and safe way to keep cooler-heater water away from the OR environment. Dripless Connectors at both ends prevent water leakage and Silver-impregnated antimicrobial PVC tubing resists biofilm formation. 

Communications Module | MCH-10COM

Provides RS-232 or ethernet communications capability to export cooler-heater parameters to electronic medical record systems (i.e. Epic & Cerner)
