Oridion Signs New Distributor Agreement With IMI Expanding its Presence in the Japanese Market


JERUSALEM and NEEDHAM, Massachusetts, August 18, 2010 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Oridion (SIX Swiss Exchange: ORIDN), creator of the Smart Capnography(TM) family of algorithm-based solutions (Integrated Pulmonary Index(TM), SARA(TM), and Smart Breath Detection Algorithm(TM)), announced the signing of a new agreement with IMI Co. Ltd., a leading distributor of medical equipment in Japan. This agreement provides Oridion with the opportunity to further expand into the Japanese market with its line of Microstream(R) capnography monitoring products.

IMI will bundle sales of Capnostream(R)20 Smart Capnography monitors including IPI* with their ventilators. This powerful combination will be offered as SafetySet(TM), an innovative solution to improve patient safety and make a clinical difference in patient care. IMI will begin selling the Capnostream(R)20 monitors and patented FilterLine(R) etCO2 sampling products immediately into the Critical Care environment and Home Care areas throughout Japan.

Mr. Kazumasa Tsumuga, President of IMI, said: "We are happy to join with Oridion to make available the best capnography technology to our hospital markets in Japan. We believe the collaboration between IMI and Oridion will help improve the safety for all the patient populations in all clinical settings in Japan."

Gerry Feldman, President of Oridion Capnography Inc., remarks, "We are honored to be working with IMI. The SafetySet package combining Capnostream capnography with ventilators sold by IMI is a pioneering strategy that will provide added safety for patients in hospitals throughout Japan. Oridion is committed to improving the standard of healthcare worldwide and will continue to offer new ways to improve patient safety and make a clinical difference in patient care."

*IPI helps caregivers manage complicated monitoring parameters with a single, simple number. The IPI utilizes real time measures and interactions of four parameters - exhaled carbon dioxide (etCO2), respiration rate, pulse rate, and oxygenation (SpO2) - to provide a single indexed value, enabling clinicians to instantly assess the patient's respiratory status.

SARA (Smart Alarm Respiratory Analysis) is an alarm management algorithm that, together with the Smart Breath Detection Algorithm, recognizes and reduces clinically insignificant alarms while accurately reflecting the patient's condition and preserving caregiver alarm vigilance.
