Advancing Interoperability - Nonin(R) Medical Unveils World's First Bluetooth(R)-Enabled, Wireless Fingertip Pulse Oximeter

MINNEAPOLIS, April 8, 2008 /PRNewswire/ -- Nonin Medical, Inc., in an effort to address rising healthcare costs and promote the use of remote monitoring, unveiled the world's first fingertip oximeter with Bluetooth wireless technology at the American Telemedicine Association (ATA) meeting in Seattle, WA. The revolutionary Onyx(R) II, Model 9560 fingertip pulse oximeter is designed for interoperability, meeting the requirements of the emerging Medical Device Profile (MDP), IEEE11073 and Continua compliance standards. With this innovation, Nonin Medical's commitment is to simplify healthcare delivery by providing innovative solutions that enable patients, such as those with chronic conditions, and clinicians to easily and cost-effectively manage monitored information.

One area of healthcare that stands to benefit greatly from wireless physiological monitoring devices is chronic disease management. Breakthrough devices such as the Onyx II, Model 9560 will enable patients and healthcare professionals alike. Patients who suffer from diseases such as Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD), Congestive Heart Failure (CHF) or Asthma will be able to regain independence -- living healthier lives. The environment where vital signs can be easily monitored by the patient and sent wirelessly through communication devices (cell phones, PDAs, PCs, etc.) creates freedom like never before.

"With the rapidly rising cost of healthcare and the ever-growing strain put on healthcare facilities, there is tremendous pressure for a streamlined solution that simplifies the exchange of information and promotes patient participation," said Gary Tschautscher, President and C.E.O. of Nonin Medical. "The integration of interoperable, Bluetooth wireless technology in health monitoring devices will provide patients and clinicians the ability to monitor vital signs with much greater ease and flexibility."

Since its release in 1995, Onyx(R) has become the most trusted name in fingertip pulse oximetry because of its ease-of-use, extreme durability and precision accuracy. The Onyx II, Model 9560 provides superior accuracy and versatility with its unique SmartPoint(TM) technology and Store and Forward capabilities.
