Mobile Wireless ECG Devices Help Healthcare Organizations Deliver Clinical

Data Faster and Improve Productivity

WALTHAM, Mass., Feb. 25 /PRNewswire/ -- Colubris Networks, the leading global provider of intelligent wireless LANs (WLANs) for enterprises and service providers, today announced that Cardiac Science Corporation (Nasdaq: CSCX) (http://www.cardiacscience.com), the leading provider of cardiac monitoring, defibrillation and rehabilitative products, selected Colubris WLAN equipment to mobilize its portable electrocardiograph (ECG) devices at leading healthcare institutions. With mobile wireless ECGs, healthcare organizations can complete critical medical tests more quickly and improve employee productivity.

Healthcare institutions and physician groups are constantly searching for ways to quickly obtain vital clinical data such as ECG readings, and disseminate them rapidly and efficiently to physicians and other healthcare professionals. Cardiac Science's portable ECG carts communicate with healthcare information systems (HIS) through its Pyramis(R) ECG data management system, enabling physicians to order ECG tests and review results online.

Using Colubris technology, Cardiac Science enables wireless connectivity for its portable ECG carts. Technicians can receive ECG orders instantly and conduct tests at the patient bedside -- without having to connect the cart to a physical cable. Once the tests are completed, the results are immediately transmitted using Colubris' secure encryption technology, back to Pyramis and the HIS to ensure the rapid delivery of results. The ability of the technician to go directly to the bedside, without having to take a detour for a hard- wired connection, helps healthcare organizations to streamline workflow and improve productivity.

"Our top-of-the-line Quinton(R) Eclipse(R) Premier ECG has everything a hospital needs for interpretive electrocardiograph technology. It allows clinicians to receive orders, instantly transmit test results and make a diagnosis quicker with the 802.11 wireless Ethernet capabilities provided by Colubris Networks," said Greg Newman, director, product management at Cardiac Science. "The enhanced connectivity solution from Colubris is already very well received by our healthcare customers."

"In the highly complex healthcare sector, where minutes count much more than in other industries, hospitals and healthcare providers are constantly looking to deliver faster, more accurate clinical results to physicians without increasing costs," said Tom Racca, vice president of marketing, Colubris. "Using wireless technology, Cardiac Science gives its customers secure and fast access to vital clinical information. And, by being able to obtain faster results at lower cost, healthcare organizations can treat their patients more effectively, improving patient outcomes."
