The recent Cardiac Science deals are with the following companies:

-- CH2M HILL -- Cardiac Science signed an exclusive five-year deal to

supply Powerheart AEDs and program management services at all of CH2M

HILL's locations in the United States. CH2M HILL is a global leader

in engineering, construction and operations for public and private

clients with more than 23,000 employees in offices around the world.

-- Cummins Engine (NYSE: CMI) -- Cardiac Science signed an exclusive deal

to supply its Powerheart AEDs and program management services for all

of Cummins Engine's 222 worldwide locations. Also, the Powerheart

AEDs will replace another manufacturer's AEDs in a number of Cummins'

facilities. A $12-billion company with 34,000 employees worldwide,

Cummins Engine is a major manufacturer of diesel engines and power

generation products.

"Our global corporate deployment capabilities are at the heart of our AED sales strategy. These recent wins demonstrate our continued success in this area," said John Hinson, Cardiac Science president and chief executive officer.

Fifteen minutes after a Cummins Engine employee learned how to use a Powerheart AED, he saved a colleague's life.

"There is a real need for accessible defibrillation in the workplace," added Mr. Hinson. "According to the Occupational Safety & Health Administration, 15% of all workplace fatalities are sudden cardiac arrests. That we were able to play such a vital role in a life saving event so soon after deployment underscores the value and importance of the products and services we provide. We applaud Cummins and CH2M HILL for their commitment to creating heart safe environments at their locations worldwide."

Cardiac Science's global program management services help customers comply with applicable regulatory requirements and practical logistics issues concerning AED placement and usage. This includes American Heart Association certified training, meticulous record keeping, and a licensed physician to oversee the program.
