Paxman Chemo Cooling Cap at Loyola Medicine
Loyola Medicine is the first center in Illinois to offer cancer patients the Paxman Scalp Cooling System to reduce the risk of chemotherapy hair loss. During chemotherapy sessions, the patient wears a silicone cap containing a circulating coolant. Scalp cooling constricts blood vessels and blood flow to hair follicles, reducing the delivery of chemotherapy drugs. A multicenter study of the system found that 66 percent of scalp cooling patients experienced hair loss of 50 percent or less.
