Date:5/22/2008

IRVINE, Calif., May 22 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Alsius Corporation (Nasdaq: ALUS), the worldwide leader in intravascular temperature management (IVTM(TM)) therapies for critically ill patients, was awarded a three-year contract with HealthTrust Purchasing Group, LP (HealthTrust) to provide intravascular temperature management products to the group purchasing organization's (GPO) extensive network of over 1,400 not-for-profit and for-profit acute care hospitals.

"This is the fourth contract we have been awarded by a major hospital GPO in the U.S.," said Bill Worthen, president and chief executive officer of Alsius.

About Alsius IVTM(TM)

Alsius IVTM consists of the CoolGard 3000(R), Thermogard(TM) and Thermogard XP(TM) systems and a family of single-use catheters, including the Cool Line(R), Icy(R), Fortius(R) and Quattro(TM) catheters. The catheters are inserted into a major vein through a patient's neck or groin, and circulate cool or warm saline in a closed-loop through balloons that surround the catheters. This approach decreases or increases core temperature from the inside of the body out toward the exterior, allowing for significantly more rapid control of a patient's core body temperature, with greater efficiency and precision, compared to conventional external temperature management products such as cooling and warming blankets and ice packs.
