Date:12/5/2008

SAN DIEGO, Dec. 5 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Cardium Therapeutics (NYSE Alternext: CXM) and its operating unit InnerCool Therapies today reported on New York City's adoption of procedures designed to promote temperature modulation therapy for cardiac arrest patients, as featured in an article in The New York Times. The article, "City Pushes Cooling Therapy," dated December 4, 2008, reports that New York City ambulances will now be required to transport cardiac arrest patients to hospitals using therapeutic cooling.

The emerging protocols and guidelines are generally intended to require emergency vehicles to transport cardiac arrest patients to hospitals and resuscitation centers with therapeutic cooling systems, effectively bypassing hospitals that do not establish therapeutic cooling programs.
