SAN DIEGO, May 15 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- CardioDynamics (Nasdaq: CDICD), the innovator and leader of Impedance Cardiography (ICG) technology and manufacturer of BioZ(R) noninvasive cardiac monitoring systems, today announced the presentation of a significant independent ICG clinical study at the Twenty-third Annual American Society for Hypertension (ASH) Scientific Meeting in New Orleans, Louisiana.
