Date:2/19/2008

Company's Proprietary Technology Adopted in 16% of U.S. Cardiology Offices

and Underscores Growing ICG Acceptance and Clinical Importance

SAN DIEGO, Feb. 19 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- CardioDynamics (Nasdaq: CDIC), the innovator and leader of BioZ(R) impedance cardiography (ICG) technology, today announced that the Company's BioZ ICG technology is featured in American College of Cardiology's ACCEL audio series.

ACCEL is the American College of Cardiology's monthly audio series distributed to thousands of cardiologists with the latest cardiovascular news on diagnosis, treatment, and research. This is the first time that ICG has been the subject of an ACCEL interview. Dr. John Schroeder, Professor of Medicine, Stanford University School of Medicine, Stanford, California, is interviewed by the editor of ACCEL, Dr. Richard Conti and discusses ICG technology, validity, and a number of clinical studies which highlight ICG's clinical utility in high blood pressure shortness of breath and heart failure patients.

Michael K. Perry, CardioDynamics Chief Executive Officer, stated, "We are extremely pleased that the American College of Cardiology would elect to highlight ICG on its ACCEL monthly audio series and believe it validates the widespread use of our technology in cardiology offices and its importance in the care of cardiac patients. The interview is very favorable in our judgment, and we hope it will help further increase awareness of ICG among cardiologists."

BioZ ICG technology is available in approximately one out of every six (16%) of cardiology offices as well as one out of every five (20%) outpatient heart failure clinics in the United States. Over one million patient applications are performed annually.

John Schroeder, M.D., F.A.C.C., Professor of Medicine, Stanford University School of Medicine, Stanford, California, stated, "As a clinician at an academic institution, I was pleased to be interviewed on impedance cardiography and to share insights into this important, innovative cardiac technology that assists clinicians in the care of heart failure, shortness of breath and high blood pressure patients. Since heart failure admissions continue to increase in the United States, as well as overall cardiac healthcare for the elderly, this important advancement in technology which allows outpatient assessment is a welcome addition to the practicing physician. If we can provide enhanced data and care for these patients in physician offices, it can help reduce costly emergency care visits and hospitalizations."
