SAN ANTONIO, Texas, Aug. 12 /PRNewswire/ -- AirStrip Technologies(TM), L.P., a leader in the field of remote patient monitoring, today announced that its signature AirStrip OB(TM) application is now available for most versions of the BlackBerry(R) Bold(TM), Tour(TM), Curve(TM) and 8800 devices, with support for the BlackBerry Pearl(TM) and Storm(TM) scheduled for release this fall.

AirStrip officials announced in April that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) cleared the AirStrip OB application for the BlackBerry.

"The BlackBerry is an innovative, feature-rich smart phone, and we are pleased to make AirStrip OB available to BlackBerry-using medical professionals," AirStrip Technologies President and Chief Medical Officer Dr. Cameron Powell said. "The development of the AirStrip Technologies platform allows us to connect physicians to patient data in ways that have never been done before, and our goal of universal availability for AirStrip products is now closer to fruition."

AirStrip OB delivers vital patient waveform data - including fetal heart rate and maternal contraction patterns - in virtual real-time directly from the hospital labor and delivery unit to a doctor's smart phone from anywhere the doctor gets a cell-phone connection. Additional patient data is also accessible, including nursing notes, vital signs and order results.

The AirStrip Technologies platform provides the ability to construct a secure, hospital-wide remote patient monitoring system with AirStrip as the backbone, noted company co-founder and Chief Technology Officer Trey Moore.

"The healthcare industry faces a critical shortage of doctors to handle a growing number of patients. This can lead to communication errors, which are the number-one cause of patient injury in a hospital," Moore said. "AirStrip is poised to have a measurable impact in addressing this concern, and availability on the BlackBerry is an important step forward."

In June, AirStrip unveiled its forthcoming patient monitoring application for the ICU and will seek FDA clearance for this and other applications later this year.

AirStrip OB is now being used by physicians in more than 100 hospitals across the U.S. In addition to the BlackBerry, AirStrip OB is also available for the iPhone(TM) and a variety of Windows Mobile(R) smart phones. A full list of compatible devices can be found at www.airstriptech.com
