Full Body Hyperthermia systemically targets abnormal cells and pathogens by raising the temperature of the entire body. Patients enter an insulated chamber that uses radio frequencies to generate heat. The patient’s body is heated to 102º-104º Fahrenheit. The head area is kept outside the chamber, protecting it from the heat, and oxygen is delivered through a nasal cannula. The goal is to raise the oral temperature of the body to 101º-103º Fahrenheit for the greater part of a 45-minute cycle.
Full Body Hyperthermia is painless and is performed every other day as part of our patients’ daily routine at Hope4Cancer. In combination with Local INDIBA Hyperthermia, this method effectively creates sustained hyperthermic conditions proven to destroy cancer cells.
